and the first thing he said was, Holy shit, it’s like, clean in here!
He usually does the (minimal) cleaning that gets done around the house, and since I started following Unfuck Your Habitat and I was bored as shit while he was gone for a week, I did a few things.
I scrubbed the tub, and the toilet, and wiped down the counter and the mirror in the bathroom (this took ONE 20/10 and an entire magic eraser). I kept the dishes either in the dishwasher or cleaned them after use. I gathered up a bunch of piles of mail and put them in one spot (tonight, I sort through them and pitch as much as I can).
I also did some laundry, which was not apparent at the moment he made his declaration, but I did it, so fuck, I want credit. I’ve washed our sheets twice in the last 9 days. This. Is. Unprecedented.
(Putting a little bit of vinegar in the toilet at night every other day or so made cleaning the toilet the easiest cleaning of the toilet I have ever experienced, in my life. And I’ve increased the frequency of drain volcanoes in my life because a) they’re effective and b) they’re really entertaining.)
