There are lots of regional differences in Spanish. These would be from Northern Baja California and probably other parts of Mexico as well.

aspirar - to vacuum

lavar los trastes - to do the dishes

trapear - to mop

tender la cama - to make the bed

Where do they say "hacer la colada?" I've never heard that one before.

In Costa Rica some of these change (at least where I live):

  • aspirar/pasar la aspiradora = to vacuum
  • to load the dishwasher = we don't use this since there are only like 5 people in the country with one of these at home, but it will be something like poner el lavatrastes
  • lavar los platos o lavar los trastes = to wash the dishes
  • lavar la ropa = to wash the clothes, or lavar ropa
  • tender la cama = to make the bed
  • pasar el palo de piso = to mop, to mop the floor (we usually drop the de and say pasar el palo piso)
  • ir a comprar = to go shopping
