At the end of October, I attended a dinner that was co-hosted by a dear fellow blogger, Colleen of Classy Mommy. She had recently teamed up with Scrubbing Bubbles to be a part of their Scrubbing Bubbles Dirty Work Panel and wanted to let us know more about it.
I’ll be honest. I keep a (relatively) neat home but I’m not someone who gets excited about cleaning. I mainly went to the dinner to support Colleen…because she’s cool like that. To my pleasant surprise, I actually had fun learning about “dirty work”. It didn’t hurt that the dinner was held at Rock Center Cafe which has really wonderful offerings. It also helped that I was surrounded by some of my favorite blogging friends. It would have been difficult to not have fun!
One of Colleen’s fellow panelists, Donna Erickson (TV host of PBS’ “Donna’s Day”) was also at the dinner. She was so adorable and endearing. I loved answering her questions about how my finance background and mom blogging worlds have collided. More importantly, it was fun to learn and share some cleaning tips and tricks. We took this quiz about the cleaning habits of women and practically all of us got 100%. (They were easy, true/false questions regarding how women think about the cleanliness of their homes).
I don’t have any really good housekeeping tips. I’m with Nike…just do it 🙂 I don’t really mind housework. The only thing that is tedious to me is laundry. I used to get in a funk every time that it was laundry day. Now, I just blast my Mary J. Blige CD during folding time. By the time the CD is over, the folding is usually done. As for bathrooms, I have nothing to say…except that one day I want a “girls-only” bathroom so that my guys can clean their own restroom! At the end of the evening, we received some Scrubbing Bubbles products. I’m a little paranoid about using cleaners around my kids, so I used it when they were out. It worked well. Now, if it would only come with a housekeeper attached to it, life would be (even more) beautiful!
P.S. Would you be surprised to learn that the results of the Scrubbing Bubbles survey revealed that the #1 reason women deep clean is because the In-laws are coming? It is…
