The Disinfecting Queen

I have been a slight germaphobe since the great stomach bug of Christmas 06. Or was it 07? We've actually had several Christmas flue bugs that spread through our family like wild fire. But the first one was the worst.

It hit everyone. Hard. Aunts, uncles, cousins, grandparents. We all went down.

And ever since then I have been a huge fan of Clorox Disinfecting Wipes.

I know, these days we should be worried that we are wiping out the good old germs and letting new super bad germs threaten us in their place, and I don't know if the wipes actually prevent any of us from getting ill.

All I know is that after kids have thrown up on the dining room table, or their most favorite spot the floor, I find that the wipes give me peace of mind. The wipes allow me to keep my table, to not drag it outside and burn it as hazardous waste. The wipes let me keep walking around the house, use the facets and the TV remote, all without a full body hazmat suit complete with gloves, booties and goggles.

This topic is at the top of my thoughts because I've just had several sick kids, and puke has been all over the house.

The Clorox Disinfecting Wipes have been at my side these last few days. I think I need to make a holster for easier carrying! I am the Queen of Disinfecting. There is not a surface or handle or place where hands touch that hasn't been wiped down daily since this illness struck.

Even the toaster and the the handle to the clothes dryer.

Everything is wiped and Nothing is left alone. The Queen has spoken!

  1. I was thinking of you as M. threw up all over our table. With our awesome environmentally friendly mind set here, we have NO Clorox wipes, or anything like them! As I was wiping up the puke, I was thinking, I needed some strong bleach!
