Video: More About Spring Cleaning Week:
For every fifteen Brits who see it as a major cause of stress in their life, there are eighteen who do it as a way of de-stressing; and today we can reveal the average person spends between one and three hours doing it every week!
New research to coincide with the launch of National Spring Cleaning Week (March 19th – Sunday 25th March 2012) has uncovered a real love/hate relationship our nation has with cleaning. Over a quarter (27%) of us admit to feeling under pressure to be seen as clean and tidy – and while 37% say they can’t relax if their house is messy, one in seven blame the cleaning for causing bust-ups with their partners’.
The only event of its kind, National Spring Cleaning Week, is dedicated to helping every one of us clear out, clean up and start afresh. The week aims to encourage and inspire the nation, and not only inside their houses; it also targets our dirty cars, cluttered garages and even untidy office spaces too.
Now in its 9th year, the Week is the perfect excuse to get your rubber gloves on and give every part of your life that long overdue clean; and according to the research, it looks like the bathroom needs it the most as we discover how that’s the place Brits enjoy cleaning the least (47%) followed by the kitchen (22%), although only 6% are offended by having to do the sitting room!
