I bet it mostly depends on the age of your kids!

Some do I'm sure and some do not. Peoples definition of "clean" is greatly varied anyway.

My house was the same with me working as it is now that I stay home. Before no one was there to mess it up. Now that I'm home I go behind everyone to make sure it stays clean

Eta:: I have four kids 11,4,2 and 9mths

Not necessarily. When I worked I kept my home immaculate and since the kids weren't home all day long, it stayed that way. We were all home as a family for dinner, I'd put the kids to bed after and then I picked up. There wasn't much to clean and the big stuff was done on the weekends.

Now that I'm home the kids are as well, it's a constant battle that never ends.

Depends on how many kids you have and/or how often you clean. Everyone is different.

Not necessarily.

Just from my experience, I think it depends on the person..how neat and clean they are in general. Ive known sahms who live like slobs and working moms who are neat as a pin. And vice versa.

Ive been a working mom and a sahm both but my house has always been clean. But thats because Im a clean/neat freak.

Some people just dont care about cleaning.

This is pretty much true. I was a SAHM when I was younger and my house was a pig sty. After my divorce, I worked and went to school; lived on my own and matured. Now I'm a SAHM again and I'm clean and organized. Either you do it or you don't, has nothing to do with being home.

Quoting bluebunnybabe: No. Either someone keeps a clean house or they don't. I've always worked & keep a pretty clean house. I've been in houses where mom didn't work & you couldn't walk across the floor.
