Some Days There is Just Never Enough Bleach

That is what I was thinking to myself yesterday during the final cleaning stages of a rather horrible and unmentionable potty training accident.

While waiting for Cody’s school bus to arrive Carter hid behind a tree and well – it wasn’t pretty.  And we still had to stand there and wait.  After our ten minute walk of shame home, in which I am quite certain every neighbor on our dead end street drove by and saw Carter’s stiff legged unmistakable walk, there was a child to hose off in the bathtub, laundry to sanitize, a bathtub to sanitize and a bathroom sink and floor to sanitize.  I think I washed my hands at least twenty times.  I felt like pouring a giant vat of bleach into the tub and climbing in – like a bubble bath only cleaner.  And with fewer bubbles.  I considered splashing a bit of gasoline around, lighting a match and just walking away but I don’t like camping that much so I continued to clean.

I try to be friendly to our earth.  We know our three R’s around here.  I use cleaning products that are “green”.  But I love bleach.  I can not help myself.  Bleach is my go-to cleaner for things involving the big P (or S if you are in the mood and want to be graphic).

Slap a sparkling clean mask and a flowing cape on this bad boy and you have just met my personal superhero.

There are days where I swear that I would rather gnaw off my right arm than deal with another potty training accident – and I am right handed.  If it wasn’t for bleach I don’t think I could make it though the potty training stage of my children’s lives.

There you have it – Captain Clorox – restoring cleanliness to the world – one bathroom at a time.  Care to share with me your personal superhero?

    I have to agree, bleach is pretty awesome. While I can’t use it on the rugs when the dogs do the big “v” I do use it in some form on counters, toilets, showers and laundry. I suppose if I could only have one cleaning product, bleach might be the one!

    I am a big fan of the cleaning product Kids and Pets for the carpet. I find it to be as good as Natures Miracle but costs less. Works well on all sorts of things including the big “v”.

    I will have to see if I can find that! I have two big spots on the rugs. 😦 Every now and again I take another go at it. I tell you, pups are hard on the carpets.
