Detail Your Washing Machine: A Quick Tip from Q-Tips®

Heather says:

If you haven’t realized by now, I’m human. I neglect some chores and then occasionally get a little OCD when I remedy that situation. This week I’m bringing you another quick tip from Q-Tips® and we’re in the laundry room. Yes, you get a sneak peek at my washing machine and the lint it collects! If you’re actually excited by that, I may be a little creeped out.

Please note I’m not suggesting that you detail your washer every week or every month. As I note in the video this is a special occasion kind of cleaning, perhaps I haven’t done it often enough (judging by the lint), but don’t think I’m trying to get you to add this chore to your already overwhelming to-do list. Maybe detailing your washer should be done whenever you get around to deep cleaning the laundry room. I try to give mine a once over when I do the kitchen since they are attached.

    I received a small travel pack of precision Q-tips as a bonus when I purchased a large box of regular Q-tips.  I actually have hid them and hoard them for myself!  I use them for make-up un-application.  LOL!  I don’t wear make-up often and I need an ‘eraser’ a lot!  LOL!

    I had a home where I used my washer & dryer as my ‘bar’ for parties. It was simply in a good spot of the home, I put a table runner over the two and set up my bar. I was told on more than one occassion I had the cleanest washer & dryer & laundry room they’d ever seen 🙂 But I love the Q-tip idea for the nooks & crannies.

    I’ve never seen the Precision Q-Tips, either, but I already have a task in mind for them that is making me want to abandon my laundry and head to Target.  You have just made my day even better by solving a frustrating problem involving buttons/knobs, grime, and shiny black kitchen appliances…Also, your shirt is totally from The Oatmeal.  How do I know?  It’s already on my wishlist for the holidays this year–right behind the “I <3 Sriracha” shirt!  🙂 P.S. I think you might be my geeky Internet-y soul mate or something (sorry, hubby).  Next thing I know, you’ll be referencing “Adventure Time” or “The Simpsons” or “King of the Hill” or something equally awesome.

      MicheleN I had a customer at the Irish Pub ask for Sriracha one morning. He did get a funny look before I could compose myself. Yes, sriracha is good, but I’m willing to bet that it isn’t common in Irish Pubs…Are you kidding? I <3 King of the Hill (That boy ain’t right, is a frequent refrain around here) and I grew up on The Simpsons. Now I have to seek out Adventure Time.

        HeatherSolos MicheleN I was imagining Sriracha on something like shepherd’s pie, so I was kind of with the guy until I read the word “morning”.  Eeeesh! “Adventure Time” is on Cartoon Network at 7:30 PM on Mondays (and reruns have been airing at least a bajillion times per week).  The characters often use the terms “mathematical!” and “algebraic!” instead of “cool!” or “awesome!”  My favorite is, “what the math?!” in place of, well, you know…

    Definitely one of those satisfying tasks. And I have never seen precision Q-tips before! Will have to look for those.
