With a busy toddler, a clumsy husband, and four inconsiderate cats, I clean up a lot of messes. Today alone, I have cleaned up cat pee, iced tea, bath crayons, A-1 sauce, and something mysterious but sticky.
When I can, I clean with a towel and my homemade cleaning solutions. But sometimes, as is the case with cat pee, unidentified goo, and other gross or possibly noxious messes, I don’t want to spread germs around with my towel. I would really rather use a disposable wipe and be done with it.
Especially when Grace is sick. I learned that tip from the day care; wipe down the toys with a Clorox wipe to kill the sick germs and prevent her from reinfecting herself.
Though I have high hopes for my homemade solutions, I end up using Clorox wipes in bulk. You think I’m joking, but I’m not. We go through them quickly.
Someone wiped boogers on the television. Clorox wipe. Someone hacked up a hairball on the dining room floor. Clorox wipe. Chocolate crusted fingerprints on the Wii remote. Clorox wipe. Sneeze on the computer. Clorox wipe. (The only one of those that was actually me was the sneezing on the laptop. The others were all Mr. Not Me, an ornery fellow in my household.)
Until now, I’ve been spending ten minutes looking for my Clorox wipes every time I needed one. I can never remember whether I stuffed them under the sink in the bathroom or the kitchen or in the hall closet or in one of my fifteen other hiding places.
My days of hiding the Clorox wipes are over! Clorox has redesigned the container, dumping the yellow plastic bucket for a series of pretty little canisters. The wipes inside are the same, but the outside is reminiscent of a tissue box, definitely nice enough to leave on the counter.
I’d like to thank the Family Review Network and Clorox Disinfecting Wipes Decor Canisters for this review.
