Caution: Cleaning Advice Below

Those who know me know that I am not fond of cleaning.

In my defense, I know very few people fond of cleaning.

But I don't really clean.

When I am busy and something has to give, it is my house. It will be clean again someday, but right now I have to work on X, Y, Z.

Until I get to the point when I just have to put everything else aside to clean because I can no longer stand it. This point usually comes when I cough up a hair ball from my dogs because there is so much of it on my floor.

That point was reached this weekend. Specifically yesterday.

I was armed and ready, though. I bought a couple of new (new to me) items that I have to share with everyone!

The Swiffer Duster.

This has got to be the best thing since sliced bread. I hate that expression. How hard is bread to slice? Come on.

Just shake the duster thing around and hook it to the plastic thing (the directions are a bit more specific). Then you dust away. You don't even have to move anything! Did you see that - you needn't move a thing! My dining room required one duster thing; the living room another. I didn't get so far as to clean the second floor. I was tired and needed wine.

I fell victim to the clever advertising. I own the Swiffer floor stuff and use it once in a while (um, never). I thought I would like the Swiffer Duster.

Mr. Clean Magic Eraser

A friend of mine turned me on to this bad boy a few years ago. You could tell it was at a point when we were both single. We called each other about cleaning products that work wonderfully. We are men magnets!

I don't know what the Jesus is in this "magic eraser" and I don't care! It cleans like a champ! Anything! The commercials are correct! It will clean crayon off the floor, dirt off the wall, spots off the cat. Brilliant!

I can't wait to clean the second floor! What fun!

Help me.....

The Swiffer Duster, you should know, was brought into our lives by Mrs. Lee. I don't like to dust, so I don't like the Swiffer Duster. My husband, however, loves it.

The Magic Eraser is a wicked cool invention. It's sort of like that tool that slices-and-dices-and-calls-you-by-name knife so heavily advertised in the 80s. But it really DOES erase all kinds of bad stains and such. I don't have one now, which is my current excuse for having a messy house. That and the fact that I don't like the Swiffer Duster and refuse to use it. And my husband is neck-deep in end-of-the-semester stuff.
