Last week, Scrubbing Bubbles released the findings of their second annual Dirty Work Index Survey focusing on how women, men and families tackle cleaning and chores!
Their findings were right on target for how I feel about cleaning, especially the part about spouses meeting standards of cleanliness!
Check out these stats…
- 58 percent of women say it’s their “job” to clean, and 25 percent of all women feel as if they are the cleaning “leader” in their homes.
- Conversely, more than half of women confided that they want more overall help from their partner, but 38 percent don’t trust them to meet their standards of cleanliness.
The survey also revealed that while men are helping around the house, they aren’t given credit when credit’s due:
- 45 percent of men surveyed say it’s their job to clean and contribute to the household accordingly.
- More surprisingly, nearly 75 percent of men claim to clean to make their partner happy – demonstrating they do care about helping out and are picking up the slack.
From now through June 2012 on the Scrubbing Bubbles Facebook page, John Gray, author of the best-selling “Men are from Mars, Women are from Venus” will offers tips and further insight into the roles and responsibilities of families to conquer household chores.
While you’re at their Facebook page, be sure and take the cleaning personality quiz too! No shame in my game, I’m a procrasti-cleaner. I love John Gray’s recommendations that I’m always thinking of other things to do instead of cleaning – that’s totally me! I’d much rather be playing with my girls or chatting on Twitter!
Stop by the Scrubbing Bubbles Facebook page and take the quiz!
Tell me what’s your cleaning personality….
