Let’s talk cleaning statistics. Trust me when I say this will be just as much an eye opener for you as it was for me.
On average, Americans spend 30 days out of each year doing household chores.
Yes, I said it. Thirty days. That is a whopping 720 hours a year! Let’s take a step back and really put that into perspective. If we spend 30 days a year (or 720 hours a year) and the average life expectancy is 78 years old, this means we are spending about 56,160 hours a lifetime cleaning.
Twenty percent of people said household chores have interfered with quality time spent with their friends and/or family.
In fact, people admitted to spending twice as long on chores than bonding with friends and family.
The average time Americans spend on household chores each week hovers right around 14 hours.
Those same people only spend a total of four hours a week relaxing, 98 minutes being active and 50 minutes enjoying the outdoors, meaning a majority of their time is spent on cleaning.
One in 25 said cleaning affected their relationship with their significant other.
Living a happy and fulfilled life has much to do with how you spend your time and if you’re occupied with cleaning, you are not fulfilling a happy and healthy lifestyle.
The most hated chore is scrubbing the toilet.
There are not many people out there who would say they actually enjoy sitting on a filthy floor to clean a grubby toilet.
More often than not, Americans put their chores off for three days before buckling down.
Twenty-seven percent of these people wish they had help.
So what was the point of that rambling of numbers?
