Did you put music on while you cleaned up after Thanksgiving?  A recent survey found 80% of us listen to music while we clean and the kitchen is the top place we really need it.

Here are five quick stats on our musical cleaning habits:


1.  85% of parents listen to music while they clean . . . maybe to drown out the kids?  That's compared to 77% of people who don't have children.


2.  Younger people are more likely to do it.  92% of people under 40 said they listen to music while they clean.


3.  People who live alone are less likely to do it.  72% compared to 81% for people who live with family or roommates.


4.  52% of people who do it have certain music or playlists they like to listen to while they clean.


5.  92% said music makes at least one of their chores more bearable.  And the #1 task we need it for is cleaning up in the kitchen
