Are You a Clean Freak?


The following is a guest post from Hoover:

dustingSo there I was in my mother-in-law’s house. We were just stopping by with the kids—no biggie. Our baby’s pacifier falls out of her mouth and rolls onto the carpet. So I pick the pacie off the ground and to my HORROR, there’s a chunk of pet hair stuck to it that’s almost as big as my mother-in-law’s Chihuahua! I felt like I had to say something to her about the state of her carpets. Maybe it was a little harsh, but the lady needs to know, right? What would you have done in my situation?


My husband says I’m a freak of nature. We’ve got two small kids and I work from home, but I still make time every day to clean. First I dust, then I vacuum. That’s the way my mom taught me. Let’s just say she doesn’t have a dog’s worth of pet hair hiding in her carpets! I think the whole clean freak thing must be genetic. My sister’s the same exact way. Do you have a clean freak relative?  
Oh, and don’t even get me started on vacuums. “HEPA,” “brush rolls,” “cyclonics”…I know all the lingo. When it was time to get our latest vac, I bet I spent more time researching it than I did my last car. Have you ever researched vacuums? Well, it was well worth it for me. That’s how I found my vacuum soulmate. This thing gets stuff out of the carpet that my old vacs must have been missing for years.
Now when I vacuum it’s like a stress reliever. Weird, right? There’s just something so satisfying about getting all the stuff out of the carpet and away from my family! Does anyone else feel the same way? Come on clean freaks, I know you’re out there!
