Tonight I unfucked the master bath (mirrors, countertop, and floor!) and the main floor vanity (mirror and sink—even bleached that fucker!). But the most Important Unfucking of All?
Hantavirus Kingdom. Aka “under the kitchen sink,” where the garbage lives and the residents come to frolic. It had been, disgustingly, a few years since Hantavirus Kingdom had had a good unfucking, and it was nigh well time.
No before pictures, because a) GROSS, and b) rollin’ with it. However, let us say that there were copious amounts of vinegar and paper towels that were sacrificed in the name of the Cause. I also put in a spring hook to keep the hoses and cords for the water filtration system and garbage disposal off the ground floor of Hantavirus Kingdom, in order to make its unfucking easier. Cleared out all the extra trash bags and miscellaneous trash that had accumulated (surprisingly, not as much as one would think), gave everything multiple spray-and-wipedowns.
(You can see the proud new spring hook above, doing its job!)
(Sharing the organizational love on the right-hand side.)
Then I scrubbed the everloving fuck out of my hands.
As I was in the shower today, I noticed it draining a bit slowly. The stopper is supposed to be attached, but broke a while ago, so Best Beloved and I just leave it half-cocked in the drain.
I pulled the stopper out, and wound up fishing out an entire fistful of grody hair out of the drain. (Okay, a kid-sized fistful, but still. GROSS, GROSS, GROSS!) I immediately threw it in the drain and did not throw up.
I feel like such an adult. One in need of some badass gif blingy goodness.
I saw your recent reply to an ask about how often to change one’s sheets (which I appreciated, because I’d never really had a good sense of when). Your reply of “once a week” seemed a little arbitrary (why not once every two weeks? I asked myself, shortly before heading up to strip the bed), but YOU WERE RIGHT.
Best Beloved came across this article last night, and I thought you and other readers might appreciate it:

I tried to do this as an ask, but it wouldn’t let me include the link, so I figured this was the easiest way to do it.
Oh! And there’s a good embedded link in the article that leads to one on spring cleaning, with lots of links to make-your-own cleaners, a list of Necessary Cleaning Items (although they don’t list Magic Eraser, for shame!), and other good stuff.
