Half of Us Will Ignore a Mess and Leave It for Someone Else to Clean
Have you ever seen a mess and pretended you DIDN’T, so someone else would clean it up? (Lookin’ at you, HUSBANDS of the world.)
In a new spring-cleaning poll, 49% of adults admit that ignoring a mess and leaving it for someone else is something they do A LOT. That’s how many said they do it “often” or “always.”
Here are a few more spring-cleaning stats . . .
1. The top five spots we dread cleaning the most are: Floors . . . rugs . . . inside the refrigerator . . . our windows . . . and the dishwasher. Microwaves and closets just missed the top five.
2. Most of us admit we cut corners when we clean. 53% said they “always” or “often” do. Only 9% said never.
3. The rooms we spend the most time cleaning are the kitchen, bathrooms, and bedrooms.
4. The time we’re most likely to do a deep clean ISN’T in spring. It’s when we know guests are coming to visit.
5. When we do a deep clean, it doesn’t last long. The average person said their home starts to feel dirty again in about 12 days.
