Housework is a right pain in the proverbial, we know.

In fact, most people would rather spend their time doing anything else, but there are some tasks which many of us inexplicably enjoy.

From running a sponge over stained glass to seeing the clean track your vacuum makes across a crumb-filled rug, we like what we like and we won’t apologise for it.

And here are just 6 which bring us untold satisfaction…

Cleaning the bath

OK, it might not do wonders for our backs, but there's something hugely satisfying about seeing layers of fake tan and remnants of sudsy shower gel make their way down the drain, right?

There's just something about a clean bath and shower area that makes you re-evalute everything.

Vacuuming a rug

Some people love nothing more than creating a clean track through a dust-laden floor, and while we're right there with them, what we don't love is having to stretch the cable as far as possible and hope against hope it doesn't snap.

So, if you know that anguish all too well and vacuuming is your go-to household chore, you need a Dyson V8 cord-free machine in your life.

Not only do they clean floors, they quickly transform between stick and handheld mode to clean high, low and everywhere in between. Oh, the satisfaction!

Cleaning the oven

There's a reason so many people are fascinated by snaps of an oven before and after a thorough cleaning, and that's because it's like a brand-new machine.

Yes, it requires a lot of elbow grease, and you do spend more time than you anticipate on your hunkers, but hell is that finished product so worth it.

Just think of the delicious baking you can do in that bad boy now…

Cleaning out the fridge

Ridding your fridge of old produce and making room for new delicious items is a sure-fire way to make you feel on top of things.

Yes, you're being responsible and yes your mam would definitely be proud, but deep down you know that the task basically allows for a much-needed grocery spree, and you're only dying for a few treats.

Emptying the bins

Ok, we admit it, the task itself is pretty grim.

But tell us anyone who doesn't feel like they can take on anything after emptying every bin in the house, tying those bags tight and depositing them in the wheelie bin.

The sense of achievement, the sense of accomplishment and the sense of smugness negates any drop of bin juice that may have landed on your foot.

Oh ladies, the trials and tribulations associated with allergy and allergy management are not for the fainthearted.

If you're one of those people who has mumbled 'don't mind me, just allergies' from a young age, you'll know that day-to-day life can be pretty tough.

From the onset of allergy season to your undisguised suspicion of household pets, suffering from allergies pretty much blows.

And it's highly likely all of the following things apply to you, but it's OK because we're here for you.

1. You sense household pets a mile off

For as long as you can remember, your parents have insisted that four-legged creatures, while beautiful, have the potential to kill you.

And understandably, you've regarded every household pet with an air of suspicion ever since.

You need only take one step down a friend's driveway to know that there's a furry creature lurking inside just waiting to send you into a sneezing fit.

2. You'd rather forget your phone than your pack of tissues

There are some points throughout the year when the only thing you care about is your proximity to tissues.

You have strategically placed boxes and packets around your home, car and workspace, and woe betide anyone who thinks they can use them for anything except an explosive sneezing fit.

Oh, and you know you're in a particularly bad way when you'd rather soldier through the day without your phone rather than your tissues.

3. You wish the Bono 'I wear sunglasses inside' look worked for everyone

At the height of an allergy attack, you can look like you've done three rounds with an Olympic boxer, right?

And the only way to avoid concerned looks and well-intentioned remarks is to wear the biggest pair of shades you have.

Except people who wear shades inside are… well… we all know what they are.

4. You feel the oh-so-familiar 'itch' coming for days

Whether it's a build up of dust in your home or the onset of summer, your body has a way of telling you that you're in for a world of discomfort in the coming days.

And it generally comes in the form of a niggling itch which manifests itself into a full-body spasm when you come into close contact with a trigger.

Why must it feel like every potential pollutant has a personal vendetta against you?

5. You hate the term 'bless you' because at this stage, you know you're not

They mean well and they assume you'll appreciate it, but there comes a point in your day when the term 'bless you' loses all meaning.

After your 80th eye-watering sneeze of the morning, the last thing you feel is blessed.

And no amount of well-meaning acknowledgements will convince you otherwise.

6. You fantasise about a pristine home devoid of dust and other allergens

While other people fantasise about holidays and time off, your daydreams generally involve dust-free floors and pristine rooms.

This allergy-free zone may sound like a stretch, but with the Dyson Pure Hot + Cool Link, it can actually become a  reality.

They might have begun by engineering vacuums that capture the pollutants found on floors and surfaces, but now they've turned our attention to those in the air. As pollution increases, technology has sought to counter it, and that's where this incredible fan comes in.

7. You can't enjoy freshly cut grass like the other humans

Ask most people what they adore about summer, and the smell of freshly cut grass will rate pretty high.

And that's because these people aren't attacked by it.

You long for the day when the smell of freshly-cut grass doesn't leave you bent double and wheezing while frantically searching for your emergency pack of tissues.

Sometimes the actual effort of having to dry and style your hair is just too much.

So, when Dyson developed a high-velocity hairdryer last year, we were pretty down with the idea (not down with the price, but that's for another day).

Well, after the success of the mega-drying hairdryer, the company is now looking towards a hairbrush.

Dyson has lodged a patent for a baton-shaped device which features a fan heater, and what looks like a cylinder brush.

The Intellectual Property Office in the UK published the design attachment for a “hot styling brush with a handle and a detachable head”.


The drawing shows that when you brush your hair, excess water will be drained down "tubular walls" made for "increasing drying speed and helping to align the individual hair strands."

“Hair is wrapped around the head whilst air or fluid exits through the slots, drying the hair and/or styling the hair into curls and waves.”

But, it's 300 quid, so, you know… priorities.
