Cleaning the toilet has been revealed as the most-hated household chore among UK homeowners, according to research by sanitary systems manufacturer Geberit.
More than a third – 34% – of 1,000 homeowners surveyed said cleaning the inside of the toilet gets them ‘really riled’, while a further 31% complained about cleaning around the back of the toilet.
Next in the most hated of household chores was keeping the shower area sparkling clean, with 19% saying they ‘really dread’ it. Nearly one in 10 – 8% – moaned about cleaning the bath, while just 2% said they hate cleaning the bathroom mirror and basin.
The Swiss manufacturer said that there are ways that homeowners can help banish those bathroom blues when it comes to cleaning, and that’s by opting for wall-hung sanitaryware where the floor is easily accessible, or opting for a rimless WC. It added: “With nowhere for dirt and germs to hide, the rimless design means a lot less scrubbing and far less need for abrasive toilet cleaners too.”
