    Only people with no life, outside interests or a healthy curiosity enjoy cleaning.

      I totally agree. My best friend loves to clean and especially iron. What a waste of time!

    I hate to clean, but I do sleep well! Sometimes, after an extra long nap, I am better than ever before!

    So this would make Germany and Holland the happiest countries in the world?

    I’m only 20% happier, not 25% – what am I doing wrong?

    I wash the dishes, sweep or mop the floors, do the laundry, take out the trash, all those things a bachelor must do. And then, as if that’s not enough, 6 months later I do it all again!

    I find that not doing windows makes me very happy. Very.

    I’m a guy. Cleaning is not my responsibility. I said it, I meant it, that’s it. I do stuff that disgusts my main squeeze – like her bathoom plumbing. What in the Seven Gates of Hell do they put down there? She rots faucet cores.

    And every-time I wash the car, it seems to run better. And I think I can pick up more chicks which is probably a myth but it does feel better. DUH!

      Truth, a clean car runs better! Freshly waxed even better.

    My grandmother always kept a very clean and tidy house in the event that visitors would come by unannounced, perhaps for coffee or to share a meal, and she believed that her home was a reflection of her. At the very least her kitchen and bathroom were always spotless. She accomplished this while raising five children on a Midwestern farm, cooking three big meals a day for about a dozen people, tending huge gardens in the summer (vegetables, fruit, flowers), canning hundreds of jars of tomatoes, green beans, pickles, etc., doing everyone’s laundry (including IRONING the sheets!), and taking every Sunday off to go to church and socialize (she cooked ahead for Sundays, except holidays). She accomplished more in a day than most people do in a week, and she was very happy and immensely popular. Let THAT sink in.

    My mother used to say cleaning made her happier than anything she did.Not I know why.

      Was she taking those little “Diet” pills she got from her doctor?

    Just another self-serving study from a big corporation. Cleaning makes me totally cranky and the chemicals give me headaches. I would much rather be out riding my bike.

    1. Deborahreed says:

      Then don’t use chemicals. I clean with vinegar, mostly, or just warm water with a couple of drops of dish detergent. I do admit that I have to use scouring powder in the bathtub, though. I also ride a bicycle often, but it’s more fun coming home to a clean abode.

    That’s a lie! I HATE cleaning, yet I still manage to sleep great AND I am happy.
    I am sure all those cleaning ladies around the world would be much happier if someone cleaned for them, just saying.

    They also have cleaner houses and fewer children, pets and visitors.
