Pine-Sol is looking to give away $5,000 and crown its Deep Clean Diva!

I’m not exactly there yet, but getting close. You know that I have struggled with the whole cleaning thing.  But I don’t wear it proudly like some badge of honor.  I’d love to master all things domestic – even if I think my hands are more suited to be soaking in a bowl of cuticle softener at the salon rather than soaking in sink full of dishwashing liquid).

Not just because it’d be great to be able to fake it as a wife, but because I shouldn’t be setting a bad example for Jane.  (Plus, I am a complete germaphobe.  I won’t even take a sip of your drink for fear of contracting some deadly disease and I try to avoid handshaking at all costs).

Turns out I am a better example-setter than I thought I was.  We had a huge pile of dishes in the sink last week and Jane dragged a dining chair from across the kitchen to set herself up in front of the sink.  She turned on the faucet, grabbed the sponge, and said, “I’ve always wanted to wash the dishes by myself.  I need a helper – someone like you – to dry them.”

The other thing she’s picked up on is that we have to disinfect absolutely everything because there’s “probably poo poo on it.”  She’s probably right.  There probably is.  That’s where good old Pine-Sol comes in like a fresh-scented blast from my 70’s past.  Except now there are so many great scents to choose from if the grown up you is looking for something other than the signature pine fresh scent.  (I prefer the citrus scent – I need something to pep me up while I’m getting my clean on).  

I’m not really sure if Jane’s enthusiasm for cleaning comes from my example or if it’s because she’s just 3 years old and every grown up activity seems like a fun game to play.  But at least she’s cleaning – even if sweeping to her means spraying the crumbs all over the floor and scrubbing the toilet with my facecloth.  (Yes, it has happened).  She’s definitely a Deep Clean Diva in my book!  What about you?
