Does cleaning really burn calories? Well watching my mom spring clean when I was growing up certainly indicated it does, especially when she chose me to get involved! She told me I was her “best bathroom cleaner” in order to charm me into doing the work willingly. It appears that spring is definitely here so it is time to get some cleaning completed. Scrub your tub to burn calories.
Does cleaning really burn calories? Sure it does:
- Washing floors- 187 calories in 30 minutes.
- Scrubbing the tub-90 calories in 15 minutes
- Vacuuming- 119 calories in 30 minutes.
- Cleaning windows- 167 calories in 30 minutes.
I had a number of larger cleaning/organizing projects I wanted to complete this year. One of them was a very thorough cleaning of two bathrooms. I actually had fun in the hours I spent in this bathroom because of my tub with a “view window” that had just been cleaned inside and out. I had worked up a little sweat and jumped into the tub for a soak as soon as I had cleaned both bathrooms!
