day 208 of 365

My grandmother used Parson's Sudsy Ammonia to clean just about everything. Armed with a bottle of this stuff, a can of Comet, some Old English furniture polish, and (in a nod to the 1970s), some Mop N Glo, she believed you had almost everything you'd need to keep your house sparkling. Throw in some silver polish and you were all set. Her mantra was: "If your windows are clean and your silver is polished, no one will notice the dust."

I need a mantra like that. Something for the 21st century. How about: "If your life is hectic but your intentions are good, your friends will forgive your slovenly housekeeping?"


  1. Oh no, my windows are dirty, my silver is tarnished and my house is dusty!

  2. I personally go by the mantra,
    "A clean house is the sign of a boring person".:)
