Thank you very much for your corrections. Can you tell me if the following household chores are possible? Please, let me know if there is a better expression.
I have to:
sweep, vacuum and mop floors
wipe counters, stove top, table and cupboards.
sort the clothes, put them into the washing machine, take them out, place them into a bowl/basket, hang them in the bathroom/on the balcony/out to dry/ hang them on the clothesline and pin them up (so they don’t slip)
do two washes a week
dust the furniture
take the bed linen off the bed, wash them and put new linens on the bed
empty garbage bin
polish the furniture up
Yes, all of those tasks are typical in a household. However, in the US and many other places now, many people have clothes dryers. That cuts down enormously to work load. I remember well, all that taking clothes out to a line outside and pinning them up, and taking them down and folding and ironing took a lot of time (in addition to being a mom and teacher ) .
