Clorox, You’ve Been a Good Friend to Me

Have you heard about the Clorox Ick Awards? It’s a Chicago thing. Clorox is teaming up with famed Chicago improv troupe, The Second City Communications, for the Clorox Ick Awards. I was in Chicago just this morning, putting my life on the line while crossing Lake Shore Drive. Okay, maybe not putting my life on the line exactly, but it’s a busy place to cross for a small town girl like me. I just heard about the Clorox Ick Awards when I returned home. What are the odds? But I digress, as I often do. I wanted to tell you about the Clorox Ick Awards Twitter Event on April 9 from 6-10 p.m. ET, during which Clorox will be giving away $2,500 in prizes! How cool is that?


I’m not sure about you but my life has been full of icky moments. Hey, I’m a mom to three (grown) kids. Some of the best parts of life are the everyday moments, spontaneous and imperfect. Some of these moments, however, are downright icky, but Clorox is here to help you through the messes.  I could talk about the baby icks and those diaper blow-outs for a good, long while, but I won’t. If you’ve had a baby at your house then you probably know what I’m talking about. Clorox was a good friend in those days. Clorox truly helped me get those Onesies clean, or whatever outfit was being worn when the incident occurred! I could always depend on Clorox when it came time to getting those icky stains out.

How could such a cutie be so…well, icky at times?


 And later, when my boys were into baseball, Clorox was there for me then too. Why were they always (or usually) required to wear white pants? Who made that rule? Not a mother I bet. Those grass stains and ground in dirt, what a mess! My sons went all out when playing sports, organized or not, and you better believe their pants were stained after every game and practice. Instead of breaking the bank to buy multiple white baseball pants, I called on my good friend Clorox to lend a hand in keeping those baseball pants clean. It did the trick every time.



After my kids got older I discovered another great purpose for Clorox. Psst…confession time! I have a cleaning business. I clean homes and office building. Many places that I clean have tile and grout bathroom floors. I’m a minimalist when it comes to cleaning. I don’t use a lot of products. One product I am never without though, is glass cleaner. I found that it works on a lot of things. I used glass cleaner on tile floors for many years. I don’t anymore and here’s why. One day I noticed that the grout on a bathroom floor in one particular house, had turned somewhat green, a gentle, light hue of green. I realized that it was because of the continual use of the blue glass cleaner. Yikes! Clorox to the rescue. I was able to clean the grout and the problem was solved. It may have even saved my job!

And now you know some reasons why I have such a fondness for Clorox.

Have you found a special way to clean with Clorox? I would love to hear your tips.
