Eva Mendes loves cleaning her family home

Movie star Eva Mendes has revealed that loves cleaning her family home.



Eva Mendes finds doing housework to be a "meditative" experience.

The 50-year-old actress has revealed that she actually enjoys doing housework, explaining that keeping the sink clean is one of her biggest concerns.

Eva - who has Esmeralda Amada, nine, and Amada Lee, seven, with partner Ryan Gosling - told PEOPLE: "For me a clean sink equals clear mind. And I find doing the dishes meditative. It is a time to think and relax.

"The rest of my family pitches in; however the dishes are really my domain - my happy place."

Eva is actually launching a new range of cleaning products through Skura Style.

The Hollywood star explained that her Cuban heritage was a big influence on her new collection.

The actress - who was born in America to Cuban parents - said: "It reflects the things in life that inspire me - family, architecture, art, music, fashion - and the colours of my Cuban heritage.

"The beautiful pastel palette of denim, blush and teal reflect the iconic colours of Cuban architecture and landscapes. The patterns I develop are very fashion driven."
