London, May 9 (ANI): It’s not just you who hates scraping burnt food and grease off the inside of the cooker, for two-thirds of British residents also believe that cleaning the oven is the worst household chore, according to a report.

The survey by market analysts Mintel has revealed that almost 66 percent of homeowners in UK have claimed that the arduous job of scrubbing the over is the most loathed task

Second most dreaded job is ironing, with 56 per cent of Britons saying they hate that chore more than any other.

Third in the league of the most detested chore is the tedium of cleaning windows, with 39 per cent of UK residents claiming it to be the worst household chore.

“These non-daily jobs such as cleaning the oven and windows are among the nation’s most loathed chores,” the Daily Express quoted Alexandra Richmond, Mintel’s Senior Analyst, Beauty and Personal Care, as saying.

She added: “With just one in seven of us having a cleaning routine, for many the jobs build up to such a degree that the chores become totally unpleasant and overwhelming. There is no doubt that preventing the backlog or sharing the chore makes these tasks less daunting.” (ANI)
