With spring time approaching, people are in spring cleaning mode. They spend time cleaning out their closets, dusting their furniture, and just getting out all the winter blahs to welcome in the fresh spring air. I just spent the past hour cleaning out my closet, and can I just say I am so ready for summer clothes because they take up so much less space!
Did you also know that cleaning is a great way to burn calories? I mean cleaning can cause some serious sweat. Here are some estimates for calories burned during cleaning for 1 HOUR:
Sweeping Floors: 156 calories
Mopping: 170 calories
Vacuuming: 170 calories
Dusting: 102 calories
Washing Dishes: 88 calories
Multiple Household Tasks (aka spring cleaning): 204 calories
