    Ok, since there has been 19 visits and no bites, how about if we turn it into...
    Cleaning experiences/fetishes?

    Do you or someone you know turn into Mommie Dearest when they clean?
    WHO CLEANED THIS BATHROOM?! SCRUB CHRISTINA SCRUB!

    Do your or someone you know have a "Scrub Dutch Boy, SCRUB!" fetish, like in My Own Private Idahoe?

    Glass: Sprayway glass cleaner. This is the stuff that Chihuly uses to clean glass at his studio. I bought a case of it (12 cans) that should last me until about 2015. :)

    That stuff works good, used it at the frame shop I used to work at.
    I have seen Chihuly's work at the ?Balagio? in Vegas and almost had a chance to see an installation at the Conservatory in Chicago, we arrived 15 minutes till closing, and even showing my california license and pleading didnt get me in.

    I keep my house clean. Fantastic Lemon Power I guess for countertops. Fantastic w/bleach gives me a headache.

    I like everything to be neat and tidy, I don't like things when they are messy, but I'm not obsessive about it.

    I have a cleaning lady come in once a week to vacuum, dust, and clean the bathrooms.

    I love the smell of Febreeze Deep clean.

    Is the Windex - Multi Task really different from the regular Windex? I use the regular windex to clean all sorts of stuff---radio/tv casing, wood tables, etc.

    It seems to have a Formula 409 quality to it, that easily wipes away unlike 409

    Does Costco carry a knock off of Endust for Electronics wipe. I used to love Endust for Electronics, but its a bear trying to find it, if they even make it anymore.

    Two cats living here also, Ill have to try Zep Pet Spotter

    Snuggles fabric softener dryer sheets are great to put between your sofa cushions, between your mattresses and between your car seats. Try it--it will give them a great new smelling scent.

    It's not the cheapest and there are some careful handling issues but I'd recommend a wife.

    EDIT: For those guy's who choose not to get a wife you'll probably be OK with just some Windowlene for the TV screen....and a box of Kleenex. :eek:
