As y’all know from yesterday, my mom is coming for a visit and I am in full panic mode. And by that I mean I am obviously sitting at my laptop wasting precious time.
If you wait until the last minute, it only takes a minute, right? RIGHT??
It doesn’t matter how often I tell myself, “Aggie, why not do this, or that, and get it out of the way before X comes over?” Usually when I do ask myself that, my other self retorts with, “HELLO?? Drama isn’t going to read itself, you know!” It’s a vicious cycle. At least it’s not viscous. That’s a whole other level my other other self would love to dissect.
I love my selfs. Heh!
Anyway, when it comes to cleaning, there are some things one should never skip. I mean it. Some things you can’t just ignore. It’s like giving Godzilla a key to Tokyo and a coupon for all-you-can-eat. Maybe that doesn’t make sense to y’all, but it sounded pretty awesome in my head.
Cleaning Jobs One Should Never Skip
#5– Refrigerator bins
Ignore it, and next thing you know the tomatoes are conspiring with the lemons to kill the lettuce and take over the fridge.
#4– Garbage disposer
Disposal… disposer… poh-tay-toh… poh-tah-toh. No matter what you call it, that little contraption hides all sorts of gunk and can really stink up the house.
Any towel used for the express purpose of drying, be it a body or a dish, will start to smell of stagnant pond water.
#2– Stove pans
You know how you start cooking and suddenly the delish dish smells of dead rodent? Yeah, that’s why.
Y’all should know this would be #1. If you didn’t then you have issues, and should call Molly Maid™ ASAP.
And those are my tips for today. Remember, the floor can be crunchy or sticky, as long as A) it’s not from bones or blood, 2) people wear shoes, and iii) Legos are safely stored away.
Those suckers can pierce leather 😉
