Infographic: Burn those calories—clean your house

Lots of infographics show how many calories food piles on. This graphic shows how much housework it takes to shed them.

Does your health care organization use infographics? These illustrations are a great way to show statistics, especially when they’re related to wellness.

This one from shows how many calories housework burns.

  • Scrubbing wipes away 400 calories an hour.
  • Making beds pulls the covers over 260 calories an hour (but that might take a dormitory full of beds).
  • Don’t think fixing a meal will cancel out the calories you take in eating it. Food prep only counts for 68 calories.
