It's probably not your favourite task in the house, but at some point our bathroom is going to call to us to whip out the sponges, dig out the bleach and give it a good old clean.
But if you really can't bear the thought of scraping dirt off the bathroom taps or scrubbing stains off the shower curtain then hand the cleaning products over to your man - as recent research has revealed that more men are now inclined to help out with the housework.
The survey by Mira Showers has found that 30 per cent of men are willing to don the rubber gloves and scrub up the bathroom to impress a potential partner compared to a mere 13 per cent of women.
While the desire to hide away the rusty razors and cover up any dodgy stains may well come out of an anxiety not to show themselves up, life strategist and life coach Jenni Hughes believes that it could also be down the changing roles of men and women.
"One of the reasons that I think that has changed is because men are more involved," she says. "Men are more involved with childcare, they are more involved with cooking, shopping and just general tidying up of the house."
But don't get too carried away praising your man's good intentions, as Jenni also suggests that men may actually enjoy getting involved with jobs around the house that involves gadgets and gizmos.
"Our bathrooms are much nicer than they used to be," she adds. "Men will participate in anything that involves a shiny new gadget or something that looks good. So if you have a very attractive stylish bathroom, then they think it is fun to clean it."
So, if your bathroom's looking a little grimy and could do with a bit of a spruce up, invest in a fancy electric towel radiator, a funky shower head or a sonic scrubber, and watch your man clean away.
