Parents claim kids help with these chores the most and avoid these ones

The average home goes through 2,184 pounds of laundry a year — the weight of an adult black rhinoceros. Kids may be a large part of the reason why. The average child goes through THREE outfits on a typical day. Seven in ten (71%) parents feel like they witness a daily "fashion show" as their child changes clothes so often. The study, conducted by OnePoll on behalf of Whirlpool brand, asked 2,000 U.S. parents with children aged 3-18 about home messes and revealed kids are so energetic and active are so messy that the average room only stays clutter-free 17 minutes. Messes can create lots of laundry. Part of the effort that goes into laundry is stain removal, and the average respondent said they spend seven minutes trying to remove stains on laundry day.
