Not only clean people look more attractive and are preferred for companions, for obvious reasons, but they are also more successful, according to psychological research. You may not see the link between good cleaning habits and success now, but bare with me and you will be convinced.

1. First of all, in order to clean the house and maintain it clean, you cannot be lazy. Yes, you could do it the lazy way just like I did, but sweeping things under the carpet or vacuum cleaning without moving the furniture around is not going to get you far. You see, in order to properly maintain your house clean, you need to be persistent. The power of will and the discipline required for cleaning your home are also key factors for success in any other field.

2. Clean people, homes and work spaces are more attractive. It shouldn't come as a surprise that people without dirt between their fingers are more attractive that those with. However, what about your home and workspace? Those have a lot to say about the way you maintain your family and your work. A messy and dirty home is the least you would like your mother-in-law to see, right? What about your workspace. If your desk is cluttered and overflowing with papers and all sorts of things that don't belong there, including your sandwich from yesterday, this could give the wrong message to your boss and clients. If you are sloppy with the documentation, maybe you have the same attitude towards the goals that have been set for you. If you cannot sort your desk, how are clients supposed to believe that you are the right person to get the job done.

3. Men who get their chores done at home have a better sex life. Believe it, or not according to psychological research on 7,000 couples in the Unites States, men who washed the dishes, vacuum cleaned and helped around with other cleaning chores were perceived as more attractive by their wives and therefore had sex more often than those too lazy to do pick their socks up for once. Not to mention that the majority of couples fight over cleaning, so if both parties do their fair share of cleaning this will bring about for more harmonious and stress free relationship, which could also help improve your sex life. So, pick yourself up from the couch and test this finding yourself.

4. Studies show that students who kept their dorm rooms clean and organized were more successful when it came to exam grades. This also shouldn't come as a surprise since sorting out past exam papers, lecture, essay and reading notes help save time which allows for more time to study, or engage in something relaxing and creative– all of which might add for the better marks. According to cleaners Islington, being organized and keeping clutter away, really does save time as we lose approximately a year of our lives just looking for lost items!

Are you now convinced that clean people have some attributes that might help them succeed in other areas besides housekeeping? If not – good! These findings have their limitations and should be tested. However, you might just find that sweeping dust and cleaning under the couch could teach you important life lessons and make you more persistent and why not even more successful.
