What is the hardest thing to clean in your house?

The Easter break is an opportunity for many of us to get stuck into jobs around the house that we've been putting off for a while. 

 

I suspect a tough cleaning job will be on many to-do lists, whether its diving head-first into the oven, tackling some stubborn bathroom mould, getting underneath the beds and couches, or carefully climbing a ladder to get those hard-to-reach crevices.

Grout in the shower - very hard work to keep pristine.

Door and window tracks are really hard to clean. Tips or suggestions would be great!

BTW, anyone seen these from Daisco? Slippers that clean the floor!

I find kitchen exhaust fans are always revolting and very difficult to clean.

Do people actually ever clean under the bed or couch? Or only when they have to move the furniture?

Grout, windows and glass pool fence are the worst at my pad.

Cleaning spray oil from areas around the kitchen. What I didn't realise as I was generously spraying pans and trays for cooking was that the oil doesn't just keep itself contained to the pan or tray in question. It goes everywhere!

 

I learnt this when we bought our own house and the previous owners had been far more generous with their spray oils than I ever was and I found oil on top of the rangehood and around the sink edges. It was a real pain to clean.

 

Our new rule is to spray the pans and trays outside.
