Whatever Wednesday is when we explore all the different ways that What-EVER! spray can be used around the house. It is an amazingly versatile little workhorse and because it is so safe and friendly, the uses are endless. If you'd like to share the unique ways you use What-EVER in your life, post a link in the comments or email me kate at cleanhappens dot com and tell me about it.
Like most of the country, here in St. Louis we are caught in a brutal heat wave. Added to that is the fact that I live in an Urban Heat Island. This is when the whole recycling/composting/reducing our waste thing becomes a problem for the Frowzy family. It takes 2-3 weeks to fill up our trash can. And with the daily average temperature of 95 degrees, and with the baking effect of those thick, dark plastic trash bins, the delay can be a problem
Now while all of you responsible, grown-up citizens are sitting there smug in your ability to get the trash can out to the curb for pick-up every week, whether it is full or not, the Frowzies are unable to accomplish this feat. If it isn't overflowing with no more room to fit anything else in it, then it isn't possible for us to remember to take it to the curb. Period. I want to say that we are committed to doing a better job at this simple task, but seeing as how every month we tell ourselves we need to change when the foul stench wall hits us as we round the corner to the side of the house, and still...we say it every month.
So, that leaves us with the job of having to clean out these trash cans. What-EVER to the rescue. When we rinse the cleaner out of the trash can and down the street into the sewer marked "Drains to Stream," we know that we are not adding toxins and poisons into the river.
And the trash can doesn't smell for a whole entire week. (Fear not, he did not use the entire cube, just the end of it.)
