London, April 19 (ANI): Five months of an average mother's life goes in washing and ironing, according to a new study.
The study states that the average mother spends twenty-six minutes every time she washes clothes with washing machine, reports The Daily Express.
And she'll do six loads every week, says the research from cleaning firm www.ecozone.com.
"It is a staggering amount of time. Carrying out tasks like pulling tissues out of pockets, pairing up socks, -looking under beds or behind doors for underwear take up a large chunk of their life," said the managing director Simeon Van Der Molen.
"To make matters worse many mums are washing clothes that aren't even dirty while a quarter are wasting electricity and water by not using a full load," Simeon added.
A mother can be expected to spend fifty-five minutes a-week ironing. (ANI)
