  • I'm a stay-at-home mom and I only spend maybe an hour to an hour and a half cleaning every day. I break up my cleaning so I'm not overwhelmed with so much in one. Like one day is dedicating to dusting, another day is dedicated to the bathroom, another day is dedicated to the bathroom, etc.

  • I work full time. I spend very little time cleaning. Around 1 hour total. That includes the dishes. I can't, there is only so much time in the day.

  • About 1 1/2 hours a day. I'm working on gradual improvement of the condition of the house.

  • 3 hours is more than I have in a day, I leave at 7:15 and get home at 5:30

    30 min tops on a weekday

  • My cleaning time varies from day to day. I work full time from home so I figure that in, the kids schedules, and what all needs to be done around the house and then I plan my day out. S some days I focus on the house and get things done, other days just the bare minimum gets done.

  • I am a SAHM, & I spend about 30-45 minutes a day cleaning. I am border line OCD. But then again, we have a small two bedroom 2 bath apartment so its not a lot to clean.
