Dishes or laundry? New research reveals the no.1 chore couples argue most over…

 

It's 8pm. You've finished cooking dinner and you can see the plates sitting on the side… but who is going to load the dishwasher?

It's a tale as old as time, yet it seems like these household disagreements aren't going away any time soon, because new research from Hillarys shows the top 10 reasons for household disagreements, and it is controversial!

 

 

According to the study, 73% of Britons argue about chores at least once a week, with 1 in 12 revealing these disagreements have even gone as far as to actually end previous relationships!

But which chore has been named as the most controversial? Scoll down to see the full countdown!

 

 

10. Clearing out the fridge - 10%

I think we've all been guilty of leaving the milk in there a bit too long at some point…

 

9. Cleaning the shower/bath - 17%

Why is there SO MUCH HAIR?!

 

8. Dusting/polishing - 23%

No, dear partner, you shouldn't be able to write your name in the dust…

 

7. Cleaning the toilet - 36%

It's a tough job, but someone's got to do it.

 

6. Doing the laundry - 43%

Where's the laundry fairy when you need them?!

 

5. Vacuuming - 54%

The lead will never quite reach where you want it to, will it?

 

4. Making the bed - 57%

No, YOU were the last one up.

 

3. Ironing - 61%

Don't trust anyone who says they like ironing.

 

2. Wiping down the counters - 68%

A surprisingly high percentage for this one perhaps?

 

1. Doing the dishes/loading the dishwasher - 79%

We're getting angry just thinking about it…

 

What do you think? Do these results match the arguments that you and your partner have, or could you add another couple of chores to the list?
