The number of calories you burn during housework depends on several different factors (your current fitness level, your weight, gender, and how hard you're working). Most general estimates say that a 150-pound person will burn approximately 250 calories for an hour of general cleaning, which is higher than the calorie burn of a leisurely two-mile walk. Remember that every little bit of activity helps, so make the most of your time and you'll end up with more than just the satisfaction of a clean house. You'll also have a healthier body!
