The other day my foster daughter sent me a text.
"I cleaned the floors."
I was super pleased because in the new house, that is quite a feat!
When I got home that evening, I was a little confused. The floors looked terrible. And they were greasy. I asked Grace, "What did you use to clean the floors?" She said she used the Murphy's Oil Wood Soap. Embree quietly said "She didn't read the instructions and used way too much." That explained it...you need a cap full. She used half the bottle. I mean, the normal rule (in our house anyway) is the more cleaning product, the better!
I went to grab the mop so I could remove some of the cleaner but the mop was completely dry. I called upstairs, "Grace...what did you use to mop the floor? The mop is dry."
Grace called down "I used the mop with the orange cover."
So I taught my sweet girl what a dust broom is...
It brought to mind this little gem from Pam Parish:
Why Did My Towels Turn Pink?
