Cleaning products: Weekly UK household expenditure 2021, by age
High income consumers spend more
The weekly amount spent on cleaning materials varied not only according to the age of the reference person, but also the gross income group UK households fell into. While households in the highest ten percent tended to allot more money to cleaning materials, in the lower income groups the amount was visibly lower.
Young people do it fast
Household cleaning is a routine task that people of all ages carry out in one way or another. In the UK, a survey conducted among consumers in 2018 revealed that on a weekly basis older people spent more time cleaning their houses more than any other age groups. For those aged between 35 to 44, cleaning the house from Monday to Sunday took less than two hours.
