Obsessive Compulsive Cleaners
Obsessive Compulsive Cleaners follows people who cannot stop cleaning and carefully matches them with someone whose home is in dire need of a spring clean. Together these people with such contrasting compulsions explore how their different behaviour affects their lives.
A quarter of adults in Britain are so obsessed with cleaning and tidying that they spend more than four years of their waking lives on household chores, with many feeling compelled to abide by strict regimes and rituals.
From the man who spends £600 a month on cleaning products, to the woman who’s prepared to lick the toilet seat to prove how clean it is, they put their obsession to good use.
Now in its fourth series, it also features mum-of-three Hayley, 30, who, along with fellow cleaners, tackles her OCD by facing some of Britain’s dirtiest places and demonstrates the best techniques for cleaning up.
