I’m thankful that occasionally, I’m allowed to work from home. I try not to push the limits and only do it at necessary times like today, when I’m waiting for the a/c repair folks to arrive and fix my condenser … again. Ugh, I’m hoping that they will just replace it, since I’ve had to call about it every season (literally, since Texas really only has two seasons a year, and I have had to call at least 2-3 times/year).
Since I’ve been saying for months (Ah, who am I kidding? Years!) that I don’t have time to clean my house, I thought I should make the most of my alone time at home this morning and went to work on the kitchen floor. It desperately needed scrubbing – not just mopping, and I’ve been putting it off far too long. I got as far as purchasing some new cleaning supplies last week, but they were still unopened. Although I usually don’t pay much attention to celebrity endorsements, I did a double-take when I saw the ruggedly handsome Mike Rowe (of Dirty Jobs with Mike Rowe fame) on the packaging for a cleaning spray while I was at the store.
I thought about taking before & after pics to show you, but I didn’t really want to admit how icky my floor was to begin with, so you’ll just have to take my word for it. The stuff works, and it works really well. I will definitely be branching out and trying other products in the line. Besides, what better motivation could I have to clean than seeing Mike’s face when I open my cabinet door? His smirk creating those adorable laugh lines as I cup his whiskered face in the palm of my hand and … I’m sorry, what was I talking about?
**Disclaimer: I did not receive any incentive for writing about Dirty Jobs cleaning products. If he felt so inclined, however, I could be talked into a date with Mike Rowe to show his appreciation for my review. 😉 heehee
