Finally getting around to it....

Remember how I told you about Mr. Clean, Swiffer and Febreeze teaming up. Well I finally got around to using some of those products. I know. I probably should have asked Ms. Jennifer what she thought of them, because honestly I do not clean my own house. If you want to see a spotless house then come by on Thursday afternoon. My house is always "clean" it is not always picked up and fortunately I am not the one to clean it, and sometimes forget to pick it up! The one area I am anal about and do clean on a daily basis, sometimes even more is the kitchen. I will not lie though, I do not mop it! I just wipe counters with harsh chemicals about 10,000 times a day. I know that some products have gone green and lots of people are going green, but honestly I like my harsh chemicals. Why? I want those chemicals to attack the germs. Perhaps I am ass backwards, but bring on the bleach, Mr. Clean, or anything that says anti-bacterial and that will kill like 99.999999% of my germs which probably only means 50%. Hell if they made one that said 110% of germs they would be the ones to get my husband's hard earned dollar.

Back to the story, I have used about half of my Mr. Clean multi-purpose cleaner with Febreeze(does this tell you how many times I wipe down counters). Too many! But I have two grimy little hands that go from one end of my kitchen to the other. And normally those hands have remnants of bananas, pudding, Oreos, peanut butter, skettie-O's and everything else in the pantry on them. So I have to clean it 10,000 times a day. And the cleaner is pretty good. It wipes away the germs like most of the cleaners I have used in the past, and I am brand name type of girl. However the Febreeze that is now teamed up with Mr. Clean gives my cleaner a fresh scent or so the bottle says. That fresh scent that came out of the bottle with every squirt really irritated me at first, it is very strong. But after I wiped down the counter, it wasn't as strong and the smell lasted all day. Now whether that is from cleaning it once and it truly lasting or my obsession with cleaning it 10,000 times I am not sure. But I am betting that you too, wipe your counters down more than once a day.

And the best part is the paper towels that I used to wipe it down, inevitably wind up in my trash and so do the dirty diapers in this house. I hate those diaper things, they all smell bad. Go figure! But the Febreeze that is in the cleaner that winds up on the paper towel, that makes its way to my trash....keeps the garbage smelling good all day! That is the best part. My garbage used to wreak, therefore making my kitchen wreak and so on, but now when you lift the lid it has a nice fresh smell. I kid you not!!!! And to get that smell in the garbage, I only have to buy one product that also cleans my counters. And the smell is not at all overpowering once it is wiped down and tossed.

So overall I would buy these cleaning products again! I have not used the magic eraser yet or Swiffer duster, Miss Jennifer did, but not I. So I will do that next week and report back. Toodles internet, I am off to clean my kitchen again!!!!

I think it's hysterical that one of the by-products of the Febreeze cleaner is a fresh smelling trash can! LOL! They should totally market it that way.

I thought of you today when I bought my Mr. Clean with Febreze! I do love the way it smells.
