71% of UK adults say a clean home boosts their mood, with Queen’s I Want to Break Free topping the charts as our favourite songs we like to clean to
What does relaxation look like to you? Perhaps it’s a cup of tea whilst watching tv, listening to classical music in the park, or reading a book on a sunny beach? It turns out a large percentage of Brits find relaxation in the form of a clean and tidy home, with 45% of adults admitting that rolling up their sleeves and using a bit of elbow grease whilst cleaning helps them to relax.
But what is it about a spotless home that we like so much? 71% say a clean home helps lift their mood, with a sixth claiming it’s a bigger mood booster than a spa trip. In fact, Brits are so keen to keep their homes clean because of how relaxed it makes them feel, they spend a whopping £601 million on cleaning each week.
New research by floor cleaning specialists, BISSELL®, has found a fifth of Brits find being at home when it’s untidy or unclean makes them feel stressed, with 16% saying it frustrates them. It may come as no surprise that cleaning the carpet is the job we find the most satisfying, so finding some pleasure in cleaning your floors might be worthwhile.
With an array of new products that make the task of cleaning both carpets and hard floors easier, it’s no surprise that 22% of us admit we’d like a cleaning appliance as a gift, following the boom in ‘cleanfluencers’.
Daniela Constantine, Group Brand Manager for BISSELL®, adds: “There is nothing more satisfying than spending time in a home that feels clean and hygienic, and our survey results go to show just how houseproud we are as a nation.
