    With 65 per cent admitting to arguing with a partner, up to three times a week, over the state the bathroom is left in. The most common arguments centre around the floor being left soaking wet, and the toilet seat being left up.

    With failing to clean the taps and leaving wet towels strewn out enraging at least one in six.
