Cleaning

Do you ever notice no matter how things don't stay clean? Yet we spend so much money and time on cleaning supplies and cleaning things up. I find that as a species we are too caught up with being clean, although some lesser animals also like being clean, cats come to mind. Although people are clean discretely, in that they'll want one thing or another clean at time, rather than everything. Like say your kitchen could look super clean and sparkle and have a lemon scent, but your bedroom could be littered with dirty clothes and dishes. You know what I mean?

I just wonder why we clean everything so much. Why is our need for sterility so great. Are we so afraid of contracting some plague like disease? Or are we more afraid of what other people think? People who should not be judging us to being with. Did society create this stigma and are we stuck with it?
