The Chore Wars – Does Your Man Help With Household Cleaning?
A lot of us guys are running the risk of losing our “Man Cards”…but to keep peace at home, you gotta do what you gotta do. Over the last 30 years, we’ve taken on more of the household cleaning responsibilities but apparently women really aren’t noticing the efforts.
According to the “Dirty Work Index” survey done by Scrubbing Bubbles, women are still the title holders in the House Cleaning role and may not be ready to share that spotlight even though they want more help. Here are some more facts:
- When it comes to cleaning, women think they do it all. In fact, 58% of women say it’s their “job” to clean, and 25% of all women feel as if they’re the cleaning “leader” in their homes.
- More than half of women said they want more help from their partner or spouse, but 38% don’t trust them to meet their standards of cleanliness.
- 45% of men say it’s their job to clean and contribute to the household. More surprisingly, nearly 75% of men claim to clean to make their spouse or partner happy – demonstrating they do care about helping out and are picking up the slack.
