While some Americans always love a clean house, behind closed doors we know there are a lot of people who just can’t be bothered to keep a tidy home. Unless people are coming to visit, there are some folks who never clean, and according to a new study, even if people are coming by that doesn’t mean they’ll necessarily pick up a broom.
A new survey finds that most Americans spend an average of three hours and twenty minutes a week cleaning without help. Now, potential houseguests will get some people to clean more, but not that many. In fact, only 34% of people say they’ll clean more if friends are coming for a visit, while 24% will clean for parents, and surprisingly, only 9% will tidy up before a date arrives.
Overall, 71% of folks say they do all the cleaning themselves, with 24% sharing the duties with someone else and 4% delegating the cleaning to others. Women on the whole spend more time cleaning then men, with gals spending about three hours and 57 minutes cleaning per week, as opposed to two hours and 41 minutes for men. And it seems men are more willing to hire someone to do their cleaning for them, with 24% of males admitting they pay someone to clean for them, as opposed to 8% of females.
- ONE MORE THING! The survey finds that Ellen DeGeneres is the person most Americans would trust to clean their homes (24%), followed by chef Gordon Ramsey (21%), with both choices more popular among females. As for men, they have younger preferences when it comes to celebrity cleaners, with 44% saying they trust either Beyoncé, Rihanna, Lady Gaga or Taylor Swift. The one person few people trust – Kanye West, a choice of only 2% of people.
