I am almost embarrassed to be writing this, but here goes:
I have been flying on and off for a few years. I usually FLY for about 3-4 months, then I stop for about 6. Nevertheless, every time I stop I never give up all my habits. Making the bed, getting dressed to face/shoes, a load of laundry a day, decluttering, I’ve still done all those things so even when I stop I am not in *too* bad a shape. I figured that soon I’ll have picked up all those good habits and will be 15 minutes away from company/guests in no time!
One thing I’ve never done is buy any products. I don’t doubt they are effective- but I figured they weren’t any MORE effective than anything else. Nevertheless, after hearing so much about them I finally broke down and bought the Rubba Scrubba and The Clog Cannon.
Let me just say OMG.
I have been sweeping my stairs (with an Oriental runner) for years and getting them (what I thought was) clean or clean enough. Now that I have taken the Rubba Scrubba to all the creases I cannot believe the amount of bits of fluff and dust I’ve pulled off the stairs. They look cleaner than when we moved in! Now I’m using the edges of the Rubba Scrubba to clean every corner I can find.
However, it’s the Clog Cannon that is currently rocking my world. I have a lot of long curly hair and every six months I would find myself standing in an inch of water after every shower. So off to the basement I’d go for my plumbing snake. Ugh. It was THE MOST FOUL duty of my house maintenance. Pulling up clumps of hair and nearly losing my lunch in the process. Using tons of labor to uncoil the snake and then pull it back up. It was so incredibly gross. Then I got my Clog Cannon. I read the directions (even watched a youtube video to make sure I was doing it right) and slapped on the correct attachment. Three times with the Clog Cannon (and less than 60 seconds with me in normal clothing and not bent over handling nasty hair) and the shower drain was COMPLETELY OPEN! I watched and inch and a half of water run down the drain in a moment. I swear I danced a little jig in my bathroom. I was so excited I called my DH at work about it. I am now off to de-clog all our other slow moving drains… Thanks, FLYLady!
