    How to do housework

    Topic : How to do housework
    * How are the responsibilities divided among family members in your household? What tasks do you usually do? Which ones do the others do? Is this system fair, or do you think it should be changed?

    I live with my family - my wife and my daughter.
    My daughter doesn’t have any responsibility for housework.
    My wife and I have divided responsibilities of housework for each.
    I usually do kitchen work such as washing the dishes and cooking foods.
    My wife is in charge of cleaning up the house and dumping trash.

    In Korea, as you know, garbage/trash is divided/separated to general waste, recyclable waste, food waste, etc.
    She dumps each waste in the waste separation site/trash disposal area of the apartment complex
    For cleaning, we usually clean up the house with a vacuum cleaner and a mob together.
    I think our housework system is well divided in perfect balance.
    ==========================

    If I have made any mistakes, please correct them.

    Note that "rubbish" and the slightly more formal "waste" are sometimes used instead of "garbage" and "trash", the last two being more common in AmE.
    Also, you might come across "organic waste" which is broader than "food waste".
