Do You Dress Up to Clean the House?

Do You Dress Up to Clean the House?

A friend of mine recently posted a Facebook update saying that she "might have just cleaned her toilets while wearing heels." Then a few days later, I saw a post of the similar sort of refrain on Dos Family. Is there something to this? Does the mundane and dreaded task of cleaning become more fun when some lipstick and cute shoes are involved?

Spurred by a friend that told her red lipstick always helped get her in the cleaning mood, Jenny of Dos Family starting posting cleaning outfits of her readers (found at Dos Family: Cleaning Outfits BLOG TOUR Has Started). Most are dressed much cuter than I've ever dressed to clean the house. But if you look good, you probably feel better doing whatever it is your doing, even if it is cleaning.

What do you think? What do you normally wear to clean the house? Will you put a little more effort into your appearance next time you pick up that mop?
