Officials with cleaning-product company Vileda said middle-aged redheaded females who work retail jobs are the cleanest demographic around the house, while brown-haired males between the ages of 19-21 were said to be the messiest, The Scotsman reported Thursday.
The company said its survey found redheaded female respondents spent an average 7.48 hours cleaning each week, while blondes spent about 6.13 hours cleaning up, grey-haired women spent 7.41 hours and brunettes tidied their homes for 5.85 hours.
The survey suggests Scotland has the highest number of prodigious cleaners, while southeast England residents spend the least time cleaning.
Vileda said women dedicate an average 20 more minutes than men cleaning each week.
"Cleaning doesn't need to be a big chore -- little and often is the best method, so there is no excuse for untidy people not to don rubber gloves," a Vileda spokeswoman said.
