  • En general no me gusta mucho los tareas del hogars. Definativamente no me gusta el planchado. Todos los otras son posible cuando hacerlo a escuchar el radio al mismo.

  • No me gusta mucho los tareas del hogares pero me encanta tener una casa limpia 🙂
    Lo que me gusta el menos es trapear el piso. No tengo una favorita pero lo que me molesta el menos es lavando ropa. También me encanta tener una cama con las mantas limpia.

  • A veces me gusta cocinar la comida arabe y limpiar la cocina despues.
    Me no gusta quitar el polvo. de verdad, yo nunca lo hago.
