This used to seem like a big chunk of time.  But at this point, what else do we have to do?  A new survey found that spring cleaning takes an average of five hours.  But 20% of us need a full eight-hour day to really do it right.  

The average American will spend 57 days of their life cleaning, which is only about 26 minutes a week.  So apparently it doesn't include things like dishes, or tidying up.  Here are the ten spring cleaning tasks we loathe the most. 

   

  1. Washing the windows, inside and out.  Especially if you need a ladder.
