OK, I must confess I am not a fan of cleaning. Seriously, if there is one thing that I wish I didn’t have to do or spend less time doing, it would cleaning my home.
That said, cleaning is unfortunately inevitable if you are parent.
A recent survey found that the average person spends 66 minutes per day engaging in different household tasks. Therefore, that’s 24,090 minutes, 401.5 hours or 16.73 days per year dedicated to just cleaning. Seriously almost 17 days a year! That’s insane.
