Getting motivated to clean or even do the dirty dishes is sometimes as difficult as getting motivated to go to the gym - but that's not all they share in common. Did you know that cleaning for two hours can burn 200 calories? That's right you can pump your favorite music and clean your place in place of cardio day! How's that for killing to birds with one stone?

OMG really? did you sneak into my house for this post panda? I actually tried to get rid of the half way chair but it just turned into a halfway floor pile... the chair is back.

You know you can just slightly shift back the dustpan and sweep again, 3 or 4 times and it will be completely gone, right?

Traditional gender roles are being turned on their head from the workplace to child-rearing, but when it comes to cleaning the numbers show that men are seriously slacking. Apparently the average woman cleans for 12,896 hours in her lifetime, while the average man cleans for only 6,448. That's a difference of 6,448 hours. So please ladies hand the men in your life the vacuum they have some hours to catch up on.

Keep sneezing from all those dust particles? Well you are the one to blame. No, no not because you haven't dusted your room since last winter, but because roughly 70 to 80 percent of dust particles are made up of dead skin cells. So before you judge your cat or dog for all the shedding, just remember you aren't as clean as you think you are!

Oh, yes. And cleaning wearing high heels is for some reason also better than without them (for me at least).

Our beds are our sanctuaries. Sure the floor may be covered in clothes but at least the bed is usually clean - wrong. When you cozy up to your pillow at night, your head isn't the only thing weighing it down. Roughly 10 percent of a pillow's weight is made up of dead mites and their droppings. Sufficiently grossed out yet? According to specialists your pillow should be replaced every one to two years.

I totally relate to this!!! I HATE doing dishes, but give me a new sponge, fuck yeah, I'll wash those dishes.

Cinderella had the birds and the mice to help her with her laundry, lets hope that all the characters at Disney World are just as helpful, because the magic park washes an average of 285,000 pounds of laundry every single day. To put that in perspective It would take you 44 years to do that same amount if you washed and dried one load of laundry every morning.

I have worked as a dishwasher at some restaurants so I have learned to touch disgusting piles of food waste. Most disgusting was probably that time when some people had rented a huge amount of tableware and oven pans for a huge party and they returned those over a month later and those were really dirty and moldy. And I had to wash them all.

This is why I rinse my dishes to almost clean in running water before I actually wash them. I will literally vomit (or at the very best, dry retch) putting my hand in water with floaties in it especially soggy bread. I know it wastes water but I just can’t deal.

I just grab the knife I just clean, then poke the plug so it moves, and reclean it. It's extra, but whatever.

I don't care about my water bills, I don't care about environment when I wash the dishes - the water must be running.

Tbh, my room in definitely more like the top one. I shared a bedroom with my little sister until I was 13, and she trashed it. Now that I have my own I’m trying to keep it as clean as possible lmao

I once tried to iron something. Once. Long story short, I melted the ironing board a little, and never attempted to iron anything again.
