A Conversation With My Cleaning Products


Before kids, I was the "Queen of Clean".  Once a week, I would religiously clean my floors, dust, vacuum, Clorox, etc.  I was the kind of person who made sure the display towels hung side by side at the same length.  Some might say I was "Anal Retentive".  I prefer "Highly Organized".  (Eh, To-may-toe, To-mah-toe.)

Anyways, I have spoken before about how it is cleaning your house after kids. Below is a recent conversation between myself and my cleaning products.

Me: Hey, how's it going?

Pledge: *Silence.*

Me: Look, I know it's been a while.

Pledge: A while? Try 2 months.

Me: I have been so busy.

Pledge: Really? Not even a little end table?

Me: I mean it's crazy!  I barely have time for the Clorox wipes -

Pledge: Oh?! I see. You have time for the Clorox wipes.

Clorox wipes:  Ha ha!  She loves me more.

Me: (To Clorox wipes.) Be quiet!  (To Pledge.) It's not like that.

Pledge: What is it "like"?

Me: *Sigh.* I'll try to do better.

Pledge: Yeah, yeah.

Sassy cleaning products!

  1. LOL. At least your cleaning products speak to you. My cleaning products left the kids to my place on the floor when they finally moved out last year...

    1. Too funny! My cleaning products are sassy because I don't spend as much time with them. But who isn't these days....

    1. I know, right? If I had a maid, I wouldn't have this problem. Ungrateful cleaners!

  3. What? We're supposed to dust?

    I though the kids would just sort of, I don't know, knock off the dust as they're climbing over the furniture.

    1. I like the way you think! Maybe we could put the dishes in the tub with the kids during bath time? Kill two birds with one stone? Is that a little over the line? I can't tell.

  4. "It's not like that." Snort!

    My dirty fridge interior is very pissed that I regularly wipe down the outside, but something is growing in the back corner of my veggie crisper.

    Sorry, dear fridge interior. I'll get to you when the kids are in college.

    1. Nicole, I am right there with you! Once my kids go to college, my house will be so clean, it will make Martha Stewart weep.

  5. Lock them in that cabinet under the sink. Nobody likes uppity cleaning products.

  6. Oh my gosh - I'm not alone. Well - I don't have conversations with my cleaning supplies - but I'm sure they're all talking about me behind my back.

    Love this - pinning it to our Finding the Funny Pinterest board.

  7. @Anna: That’s what I’m thinking with my cleaning products too. Haha! I’m wondering what they’re all talking about behind my back. If they can really talk, maybe they are already yelling at me. This post here opens up my mind that I should give more time with my cleaning products just like the old times. +Skylar Cox
