About This Quiz

Most people would probably agree that one of the most tedious aspects of living in a home would be to maintain its cleanliness. In fact, there are many types of household chores that need to be done on a regular basis, such as wiping the mirrors, sweeping the floor and cleaning out the fridge. If you're a neat freak, such chores may sound fun to you, but the same can't really be said about those who are slobs.

A slob is someone who doesn't really like to clean much. Now, this doesn't necessarily mean that this person is lazy, as there could be many factors that are preventing them from cleaning. One of the biggest ones would be fatigue due to having a busy schedule. Many people work 40+ hours per week, and when they come home, cleaning might be one of the last things on their mind. And we get it, because maintaining a clean home can be a pretty tough responsibility! But remember that it's always important to find time for such chores, even if it's only 10-15 minutes per day.
