Parents have spent more than two whole days cleaning up kids' messes since the pandemic started

Parents have spent 59 total hours just cleaning up the messes their kids have made during the pandemic, according to a new survey.  That's almost two-and-a-half entire days of cleaning.

Those numbers are based on the average kid making six messes per week, with each one taking their parents around 16 minutes to clean up.

And the most common messes involve food . . . toys . . . and clothes.
