Passover is just around the corner and it’s the acme of the cleaning season. In their honor, we have directed our attention to two extremely pertinent household appliances – the vacuum cleaner and the dishwasher.

In 2017, 65% of Israeli households had a vacuum cleaner. The city with the largest number of owners of vacuum cleaners was Rishon Lezion, where 73% of the families had a vacuum cleaner, while Netanya was found to have the lowest number, with 42%. Jerusalem was located somewhere in between: 60% of Jerusalemites suction up their dust with the help of a vacuum.
