Truth be told, I am not the cleaner in our home. Well, I am not the regular cleaner in our home! For the most part my partner does things like the dishes, sweeping, washing the floors and so on. My mother who lives in the basement apartment of our home also comes up and cleans — I have a pretty awesome mom! She will do things like dust, wax and vacuum. As for me, I have an obsession with my bathroom, it is the one room of the house I can’t let anyone else clean because I have to know I have cleaned that room from corner to corner. With all the germs that float around in a bathroom I can’t sleep at night if it hasn’t been cleaned to my satisfaction.
With that said, I have teen and a pre-teen daughters, who let’s put it nicely, are a tad messy in the bathroom. I can’t count how many days I go in after they have up and left for school to find toothpaste on my counter (and all in the sink), hair everywhere – did they transform into shedding dogs? and well some days it looks like a war zone with shrapnel everywhere!
