Mum's flipchart outlining what she does each day when husband is working goes viral

we love 18/04/2019

One mum was sick of having to explain to her husband what she did at home while he was away, and that fact that he never helped her do any chores around the home.

So she created a detailed flipchart that outlined exactly what chores needed to be done each day around their home.

Writing on Facebook group Mums Who Clean, she shared her creation and has fast gone viral.

"My partner has forever been at me that I only ever have to ask for help with housework & that he never knows what needs to be done (typical male, can’t see any mess) SO! I made an easy to read flip chart with my daily cleaning, so if he ever feels like helping out, all he has to do is grab it & take a look!" she captioned her post.

The mums post fast blew up in the Facebook group, full of (as the name suggests) mums who love to clean.

Many praised her for her idea and claimed that they were going to be copying it. Others shared their similar approaches such as checklists, or lists of set chores for those who live in the household.

Some members of the group however, thought that the mum was little excessive.

"Am I the only one who doesn't vaccum every single day?" wrote one.

"Wow.. what a way to live."
