TBWCYL Day 263 - Disinfect my life

What a day yesterday. We successfully had the White Trash Bash on Saturday night and it was at least twice as trashy as last year. I will get a post up about it soon and we have pictures. The only problem with parties is the mess that is left behind afterward. The smell of stale beer on the garage floor, the stain on the stairs that I hope is beer, and the sticky counter surfaces from the mixture of food, liquor and what else I don't want to know.

I have said many times before that I sometimes think I was meant to find this book at this moment in my life as it coincides with me more than it possibly should. Yesterday was one of those times. Because my task was to 'Disinfect Everything' and I can't think of a time where my house needed it more.

Armed with a pack of Lysol Disinfecting wipes I started in the kitchen and went ape shit crazy disinfecting things. I started with washing the inordinate amount of shot glasses and did all the other dishes. Then I got my wipes going and hit the following. I bet you never even thought of some of these things as germy but when I am done blowing your mind, you will think twice about a lot of things. Below is the list of disinfected items now in my house.

  1. Doorknobs
  2. Kitchen Table and chairs
  3. Every light switch in my house
  4. Alarm Keypads
  5. Keys
  6. Refrigerator Door Handles
  7. Washer and Dryer Handles
  8. Dishwasher Handle and buttons
  9. Mini Blind Strings and round dangly things you pull to make blinds open
  10. Ceiling Fan Pull cord
  11. Soap Pump (You pump soap with germy hands don't you?)
  12. Remote Controls
  13. Buttons on Stereo
  14. Toilet Flusher, Seat, and rest of Toilet
  15. Knobs to Dresser
  16. Banister
  17. Lamp knobs
  18. Vacuum Handle

I also threw away old sponges and I meant to do the keyboard on the computer but forgot that one. My house is now clean again and I am exhausted from partying and then having to clean up.

That is all,

Ooh OCD goodness. I'd have to clean the house BEFORE having a party and then again afterwards. Much easier to just have internet friends.
: )

PS - My next post is going to be devoted to you in hopes that you will one day forgive me.

Blimey, well I won't be popping over to use your computer later, what with the risk of catching swine flu from the unclean keyboard.

S&C I love praise so that will be good to read.

Mo, yes all the germs flew in a hurry to the keyboard and with all the other nasty things on it to begin with it just makes it worse.

Twinity, if you're actually going to visit me one day, expect a far, far lower standard of hygiene. Somewhere on par with 'hovel', but not quite as bad as 'dumpster'. Bring wipes.

PS: Alarm Keypad? Holy Bikinis, Batman. Texas is hardcore.

Thanks for the warning.
