I have the same problem for the same reason. My mom used
to yell at me to get me to clean up my room and help clean
up the house. Now I absolutely hate housework.
The only things I've found that help are (1) to have someone to
live with. I'm respectful of their right not to live in a
mess, so I clean up more than I do when I live alone. And (2)
invite people over on a regular basis (as someone suggested) so
that you're motivated to clean up.
I also clean thoroughly whenever family comes for a visit, since
they will be all over the house, using the shower, etc.
I suppose therapy would help, but that costs money, usually.
