A Clean Sweep

News on 1 Jan , 1990

If David Beckham really wanted to satisfy his self-confessed obsession with cleanliness and order, he should have opted for a red headed shopworker from Scotland instead of Posh.
Because they are, officially, the cleanest people in the UK – especially if they are aged 51-55, according to a poll of 3000 adults by cleaning company Vileda.
Redheads spend an average of 7.48 hrs cleaning the house every week, more than their blonde (6.13 hrs per week) and brunette (5.85) counterparts.
People who work in retail are the professionals who clean most, maybe because they are so used to being organised at work. They clock up a massive 9.05 hours of domestic duties each week.
