It is March and I am forging on with my de-cluttering with some spring cleaning. You would think with all this clutter we might have a cleaning problem, but as they say “ours is a clean house ours is”.
In fact, I don’t know how any germs dare come in. We have an arsenal of weapons to combat the war against every speck of dust —-every insect that might darken our door —- all the new streptococcus lying in wait for a chance to strike you down —- and even me should I ever step across the threshold in my muddy boots.
The major defensive strong hold is the cupboard under the kitchen sink. I hardly dare open the door. Every time I do, a platoon of aerosols falls out ready to blast you with disinfectant, or splatter your trousers with bleach, which is probably why all chiefs wear white aprons. It could be worse, the bug killers don’t taste at all good if you approach the cupboard with your mouth open. In fact it is wise to use a mask! There again, on a good day if you are lucky one slight move and you could be showered with Fabreeze orange blossom fabric spray.
I haven’t even mentioned the additional emergency supplies we have in the downstairs toilet and in the upstairs bathrooms. There we have a reservoir of thin and thick bleaches big enough to wipe out an epidemic of global proportions. There will be no outbreak of bubonic plague in our house.
Finally in every corner of every room we have movement sensor sprays ready to annihilate any bug that dares show it head. And make me a nervous wreck each time I move from room to room !
There must be a better idea to reduce the clutter of cleaning materials. Any inspiring ideas ?
