Study Finds Millennials Only Clean Their Turlet Once a Month
If you were listening to the Moose Morning Show today than you heard me talking about how millennials clean their bathrooms less frequently than other generations.
A study found that 20 percent of people born after 1981 said they scrubbed their toilets every four weeks, compared to just over ten percent of Gen Xers and Baby Boomers. Four weeks? Are you serious?! You need to be cleaning your turlet way more frequently than that.
Across all age groups, 54 percent say they clean their bathrooms once a week. Also, 52 percent of Baby Boomers said they change their sheets each week, compared to just 36 percent of Millennials who said the same. Are you aware of how much sweat and how many skin flakes live in your bedding? Okay, I'm starting to gross myself out here.
Overall, 38 percent of people surveyed said they only use their towels once or twice before throwing them in the wash, and 53 percent said they usually wash their pots, pans, and plates by hand. But then again, who wants to put the expensive Cuisinart stuff through the dishwasher?
The results also showed that those who live in Hawaii spend the most amount of time on chores like dusting, vacuuming, and mopping floors, and those from Minnesota and New York spend the least amount of time cleaning.
I guess the big take-away here is- Wash your turlet!
