The last week has seen many reports claiming that women carry out more housework than their husbands – is this the case in your home?
According to research from the Institute for Public Policy Research, eight out of ten married women do more of the chores than their other half. Only one in ten married men does the same amount of cleaning as his wife.
Well done to all the men out there who split domestic tasks equally – not forgetting childcare as well.
It’s easy to pitch in guys so if you’re a little stumped on where to start, here are a few simple tips on how to help out…
- Vacuuming is a quick and easy task when done regularly and makes a huge difference to the overall appearance of a room
- De-cluttering rooms creates a bigger sense of calm and ensures that any dirt doesn’t go unnoticed
- Dust the tops of cupboards, bookcases and wardrobes once a week to keep items looking fresh and new
