No home is immune from messes. If yours is I’d love to know your secret! Unless it requires me to wear white gloves and booties over my shoes. Simply opening up our doors to go outside lets in more dust than you’d ever imagine. The new layer of dust that settles on top of our furniture every week attests to that! Whether caused by intentional actions or by accident, life has a way of being messy. We may not always plan on or expect the way it may happen but we can be prepared to get everything all cleaned up.
Maybe, just maybe, we can learn to relax and realize “Life is funny. Life is messy. Life is good.”
First step, take a breath and just laugh! Make fun out of the mess.
Take a cue from Clorox® and make the everyday yuck in your life just a little bit more fun!
Instead of screaming out in anguish the next time another bowl of your toddler’s oatmeal hits the floor, bust out some of Clorox’s Ick-tionary lingo and think of it as an opportunity to squeeze in some daily spillates!
Stretching exercises that tone muscles and improve flexibility when you’re wiping up spills under tables and on countertops.
Just make sure you read up on what surfaces your specific wipe formula is best for. I’d hate for you to strip the finish on your custom painted bedroom dresser!
Wanna see how I’m laughing at the everyday messes in my life? Check out the fun “Ick-words” I came up with for these messy scenarios!
