How to Know It's Time to Clean House

  • A pungent, unexplainable odor greets you when you walk in the door.
  • There are sippy cups in the sink containing what appears to be cottage cheese.
  • You find a laundry basket containing dirty clothes you thought were lost, which explains the phenomena of the disappearing washcloths.
  • Your baby's knees are brown from crawling on the floor.
  • You stick to the floor when you walk on it.
  • You are unloading the dishwasher, but can't find a clean surface to put a clean dish on.
  • No silverware in the silverware drawer.
  • One word: Commando.
  • The cat wants to go live with the neighbors...and they have dogs.
  • You need orange cones and flashing lights around the pile of laundry in the hall so people can walk through without hurting themselves.
  • You find leftovers from Christmas in the fridge...and it's mid January.
  • Your six-year-old says, "Mom, what's that brown stuff on the stove?"
  • You search the yellow pages for the nearest truckstop so you can use a bathroom cleaner than your own.

I'm not sure how any of these directly point to needing to clean. Sounds like dorm life in college, right?
