There have been so many times when something utterly gross happens to us. It seems that these things happen more frequently once you become a parent. How many times have you encountered a messy diaper blow out? My mother said that when my brother was a baby, he took his diaper off and proceeded to draw on the wall with his poop. How wonderful for her! I am so grateful that the boys never did anything like this. Now, the FTC says I have to mention to you that this blog post is part of a paid SocialMoms and Clorox blogging program. The opinions and ideas expressed here are my own.
Have you ever dropped your smartphone in the toilet? You may not publicly admit it but I am sure many of you have. We have all had many icky moments that we don’t care to discuss and would really like to forget ever happened! Guess what? You’re not alone. Clorox has been faithfully helping you clean up these messes with products from toilet bowl cleaners to disinfecting wipes for a very long time, and now they wanted my help naming life’s biggest messes! My words are Clorox-approved and are in the new online Clorox Ick-tionary, the hilarious dictionary of messes.
The Clorox Ick-tionary captures the icky every-day and over-the-top situations that everyone can relate to; from circumstances surrounding the unpleasantness of poop and pee to things like applesauce on the ceiling (where), to the sticky situation you’re in from the accidental “reply to all” mass email. Visit The Clorox Ick-tionary to laugh, commiserate and resolve some of these mishaps and see how Clorox cleaning and laundry products can help turn a lot of these ep-ick disasters into cleaning wins.
