A Third Of Men Have Never Changed Their Bed Sheets

A Third Of Men Have Never Changed Their Bed Sheets

One third of men have officially never changed their bed sheets, according to a new study.

The research revealed more than half of men (53 per cent) have performed chores badly on purpose, to get out of doing them in future, too.

Cleaning company Maid2Match surveyed people from three continents, and spoke to 1,000 men and women from the USA, Australia and the UK about their household's cleaning habits.

Respondents were told to consider the following household chores when answering: ironing, washing up, vacuuming, dusting, general cleaning (bathrooms and kitchens), polishing, laundry, garbage, mopping.

So, that should give you an idea of just how much they're shirking.

The results also showed that the majority of households still adopt a traditional setup when it comes to housework, with two thirds of women (66 per cent) stating that they do most if not all of the chores.

The silver lining is that British men seemed to be the most helpful of the bunch, helping with two fifths of the chores (which is still nothing to be proud of, tbh...)

They were followed by Australian men, who helped with a quarter, while American men were the least useful around the house, only chipping in with housework 18 per cent of the time.

On average, the study showed that married men spent around thirty-five minutes a week completing household chores, whereas married women spent two and a half hours. Yikes.

Showing just how much men depend on their wives, single men spent substantially longer cleaning up after themselves.

They took an average of an hour and twenty minutes doing chores in total, while single women spent an hour and fifty minutes.

The part that made us laugh the most, though, is that over one quarter (26 per cent) of men felt like they didn't get enough praise for completing household tasks.

*Eye roll*.

Ladies, anyone else contemplating going on strike rn?!
