I read an article about house work and how many calories you can burn while cleaning. I found this interesting even if you don't take an entire hour to do each chore it is fun to read. I guess you could pro-rate the time you do each activity. Hope you enjoy this information, now healthy cleaning!
Vacuuming 244 calories burned an hour
Sweeping 211 calories an hour
Dusting 160 calories an hour
Laundry 128 calories an hour Credit: Content of this article is property of Fitness Magazine Nov./Dec.2011.
