Ever have one of those crazy days? Maybe it's a crazy week...or a crazy month. Well, for some strange reason I was struggling with finding a topic to write about for this newsletter. (Normally, writer's block is not something that I suffer from.) But I was having difficulty writing about cleaning today. Funny, but my house is having difficulty staying clean this week, too. Then, I got to thinking about some of the "crazy" cleaning ideas I have personally witnessed and some that others have written to tell me about.
Yes, some of those ideas are out there. Like using underwear to clean with. I remember going to a friend's house to work on a decorating project and she whips out an old pair of her husband's underwear to clean some brass fittings for a piece of furniture we were working on. We both looked at each other in stunned silence -- she knowing that I was looking at her hubby's dirty old drawers and me knowing that I was, well, looking at her hubby's dirty old drawers. It was an uncomfortable moment to say the least. I wonder if she still uses them?
I can honestly say that I would never be desperate enough to use old underwear for anything. Please: use old towels, dishtowels, t-shirts (maybe), but never, ever use old underwear. You might just embarrass yourself -- and someone else. ;-)
