: Hi, guys, who can help me? I'd like to know the meaning of the idiom: drives anyone doing the cleaning to distraction.
: Thanks, HCD

The idiom would be "drives to distraction." Here's my opinion: someone who is driven to distraction is so annoyed or angry about someone or something that he can't think straight or focus.

People who leave spilled popcorn boxes and drinks in the theater drive the people doing the cleaning to distraction.
