Halloween is a time for frights and scares, of fun and costumes with kids to enjoy everywhere. A lot of my friends like to visit theme parks and “haunted” houses to get their scare on close to Halloween. Others, go watch a scary movie to get that spine chilling thrill. Me? I think I have the scariest experience of them all and I just have to walk into my bathroom after coming home from a business trip to see it.
A few years ago, I had to go out of town for work for a few days. The day after I left, my daughter came down with the stomach flu, which means my husband did too. Not only that, but my dog just got fleas and the cats were showing their anger by leaving coughed up furballs everywhere. I kinda felt bad for my husband who was dealing with all this while I was away, but he handled it like a champ. Or so I thought.
When I got home after a long, long travel day, all I wanted to do was draw a bath and soak away all the travel grossness from my tired body. I poured myself a glass of wine, walked to the bathroom where I turned on some relaxing music, opened the shower curtain and…screamed.
My tub had taken on a new life, a gross one covered in, I don’t even want to know. All my tub dreams went cold.
Turns out that my husband did handle everything. He rinsed out the mess from my daughter’s stomach flu…in the tub. He bathed the dog in a special flea shampoo…in the tub. He rinsed out everywhere the cat had left hairballs…in the tub. He rinsed out the tub with some water… and let it sit from the time he left that morning, til I got home around 3pm and the tub was angry. So instead of my dreamy bath, I got a scary surprise that it took me hours to clean.
We didn’t know then that all we needed in our lives were Clorox® Disinfecting Wipes with Micro-Scrubbers. It’s a multi-tasking clean-it-all! They help kill ghoulish germs and the spookiest bacteria, and remove kitchen grease and countless other nasties you find lurking in your home. They can also kill 99.9% of germs that can live on surfaces for up to 48 hours, as well as 99.9% of viruses* and bacteria – plus Staph, E. Coli, salmonella and strep. Plus, Clorox® Disinfecting Wipes with Micro-Scrubbers are textured to scour away stubborn messes other wipes leave behind.
To this day, it’s the scariest thing I have ever seen. I get chills when I remember the Revenge of the Tub.
