Study Says Illinois Homes Are Cleaner Than Most Of The Country
Sure, Illinois has its difficulties in some categories like property taxes, government corruption, and a steadily declining population, but we apparently make up for it with our spotless households.
As the primary housecleaner at our place, I've come to the conclusion that a too-clean house is usually the sign of a bad internet connection. I've always agreed with the anonymous person who once said that cleaning with kids in the house is like brushing your teeth while eating Oreos.
It's Okay To Take A Break From Housecleaning To Finish This Piece
My late mother-in-law kept the cleanest house I've ever been in (although I was constantly afraid of making even the slightest mess), as she usually vacuumed and dusted twice a day. When I dust around the house, my Swiffer Duster usually winds up looking like a extra-large black licorice-colored cotton-candy on a stick, so maybe frequency is my problem.
TheWaycroft.com recently published the results of a survey where they asked people all over the country to rate their own cleaning habits on a scale of 1 to 5, with 1 being the dirtiest and 5 being the cleanest. They talked to at least 30 people in every state to make their determinations on who's cleaning up versus those who aren't. I guess we should assume that people aren't lying about the cleanliness level of their abodes.
Here's the top 5 cleanest:
- District of Columbia
And the dirtiest:
- New York
- South Carolina
