Mowing the lawn, cleaning the windows and putting the bins out are jobs that women believe should be carried out by the man of the house, a study has found.

The list of ‘his ‘n hers’ chores emerged following a study of 5,000 adults into which sex is responsible for everyday jobs around the house.

Women also ruled out getting things out of the loft, removing sticky lids from jars and unblocking the lavatory.

Meanwhile men believe women’s jobs include remembering birthdays and anniversaries, organising the social calendar and replacing the toilet roll when it runs out.

A spokesman for, which carried out the survey, said: “There is a very clear divide between the chores men and women will do, but at least it shows that both sexes are responsible for the running of the household.

“There seems to be a general trend that women are responsible for the day to day chores, such as keeping the house clean and tidy.

“But men make sure things are fixed and in good working order. Neither sex is afraid of getting their hands dirty.

“We’re sure that in some households there will be a point where a man is forced to do a pink job, and a woman finds herself carrying out the odd blue job.

“The delegation of these chores has nothing to do with our ability or inability to do various tasks.

“It’s just that men tend to be better at more hands-on chores, and women are naturally more organised and methodical in their approach to running the house.”

While the study found cooking meals is often shared it emerged men are more likely to be delegated tasks of bravery and courage – such as investigating strange noises in the night and removing spiders from the bath tub.

Keeping the garden looking its best also fell into the male domain – with men in charge of mowing the lawn, edge-trimming and hedge-trimming.
