Man shares list of household cleaning rota – people think it’s way over the top

Do you sweep and mop your kitchen every day?

This man does. And much more. His cleaning rota is, to some, apparently a little overboard. An indication that he must be "unemployed," even.

The American man certainly has a rigorous schedule. It’s methodical. He’s divided it into daily, weekly, monthly, and even yearly chores.

But is it too much?

Obviously, keeping your house clean and tidy is important. Time consuming and arduous, nobody really wants to do the washing up or vacuum the hallway. Unless you’re Monica from Friends.

Some people have suggested that the daily list is actually relatively reasonable – although you might think mopping every day is a bit much. Taking out the rubbish isn’t a requirement either, given it’s only taken once a week here in the UK.

The general consensus of the schedule overall is that the man’s cleaning is OTT.

"Ain’t no one got time for that," wrote one.

Another said: "This is seriously like 2-3 hours of work every day. Who the f*** has this much spare time?"

While another wrote: "As a Marine.. I do all of this daily :("

But parents also had opinions. Some said that with kids, cleaning is "never ending" – but there’s not really time to stick to any sort of agenda. Housework is just done as and when.

One parent said: "Only a single non-parent could dream of doing laundry once a week."

No, it’s far too much
No, it’s not enough
It’s fine for a very clean singleton
I think it’s quite bang on for most people, to be honest
