As I mentioned earlier, 2013 was a whirlwind.
We moved into a tiny flat during a heatwave and I think I fried off several thousand
braincells. We renovated, we moved back.
The plan was to take the year off work, and I did for the 6 months we were out of the house,
but there were splashbacks to investigate and lighting to buy, and return, and buy more of.
Paint samples to obsess over.
On top of this the regular kiddy-party-playdates / kindy-drop-off-pick-up routine that
just about did my head in ( long daycare had spoiled me I think ) and everything else,
we kinda moved back in and got busy working again to pay for what we had spent.
Thus it is only now, in these Summer holidays, that I feel I am finally home,
and discovered I had a "junk drawer" already.
The builders started it.
We got new doorhandles, so they popped the old ones in the 2nd drawer down.
Excess screws and warranties, 2nd drawer down.
A caulking gun, and some weird bits of metal with stickers on them warning me
not to throw them out. Err, ok, weird excess bit of metal. You can stay for now.
In the 2nd drawer down.
So today I be cleaning, and tomorrow we be getting a skip to sort out the garage
( where all the bigger post-reno junk went ). We love a good clean out.
So when Dettol's people called my people ( err, that would be me, I dont have people )
and asked if i'd like to trial some new cleaning stuff, I was all 'um hello, yes please'.
Also, Dettol is really into a green theme atm, and so am I. Call me vain
( i'm ok with that )
but I like the pretty, even with my cleaning
products. Dettol matches my house.
I only buy the Dettol handwash in my bathroom because it's a pretty Lime colour/scent
( I used to decant into refillable fancy containers, but have never found one of those suckers
that ever worked properly, so have given up )
Also, I have two boys. One was born nice and clean and tidy. I could take him anywhere
and people used to remark how I ever got around without a nappy bag, or really, any bag at all.
He just never made a mess. Other babies were always gooby and ikky, but not mine.
But then I birthed the other baby and this one was the Anti-Clean.
Seriously, even now at 5 1/2 yrs old, he's still perpetually grotty. He will eat one tiny little
thing and manage to smear it all over his face. No-one wants to sit at his place at the
kitchen counter as there is food EVERYWHERE .. spills, splatters, crumbs.
The floor beneath his seat is usually repulsive and as I type I find my nostrils flared and
my mouth pursed in disgust.
Lucky he's also very cute and witty and fun and cheeky, but By God I hope he learns
where his mouth is soon.. or at least has the good grace to clean up after himself. Ugh.
So the new Dettol Floor Cleaning System is perfect for me. I find mops rather gross
to be honest .. especially those string ones. I have a sponge-mop, but I always end up doing
most of the work on my hands and knees with an old towel anyway as they always seem
to leave streaks - or dull my floors. I hate dull floors.
Floor Wipes are easy, hygienic and clean really well without leaving residue.
Pop one on, and once done, pop it in the bin and admire the mess-free result.
Mmm ... fresh Lime & Mint!
Especially fresh for around the toilet ( boys remember.. I have boys .. )
Are you cleaning the house too for the fresh New Year?
