A new study has found that three in ten people Britain hardly ever clean their windows and around a quarter rarely clean the oven.

The study also found that three quarters of Brits cared about having a clean home and nearly a quarter of us spend two and a half hours a day cleaning and tidying. Although the stats also revealed that 28 percent of us admit that their home is messy most of the time.

The senior household care analyst at Mintel, Richard Caines, said:

“For the most part, Brits are enthusiastic cleaners, but some jobs remain too much for even the most devoted cleaner.

“Cleaning the windows and oven top the least loved tasks, and the windows of more than a quarter of adults hardly ever get cleaned, suggesting the market for window cleaners is not realising its full potential.”

The study also showed that one in twenty use the services of a professional house cleaner to make the task of cleaning much simpler and twelve per cent pay to get their carpets and upholstery cleaned.

Richard further commented:

“Carpet cleaners have been a star performer in the household cleaning products market, sales of carpet and upholstery cleaners did well between 2010 and 2011 boosted by product innovation seen from some major brands and an effort to look after carpets as opposed to buying new floor coverings.”
