If you haven’t realized by now, I’m human. I neglect some chores and then occasionally get a little OCD when I remedy that situation. This week I’m bringing you another quick tip from Q-Tips® and we’re in the laundry room. Yes, you get a sneak peek at my washing machine and the lint it collects! If you’re actually excited by that, I may be a little creeped out.
Please note I’m not suggesting that you detail your washer every week or every month. As I note in the video this is a special occasion kind of cleaning, perhaps I haven’t done it often enough (judging by the lint), but don’t think I’m trying to get you to add this chore to your already overwhelming to-do list. Maybe detailing your washer should be done whenever you get around to deep cleaning the laundry room. I try to give mine a once over when I do the kitchen since they are attached.

Definitely one of those satisfying tasks. And I have never seen precision Q-tips before! Will have to look for those.
I’ve never seen the Precision Q-Tips, either, but I already have a task in mind for them that is making me want to abandon my laundry and head to Target. You have just made my day even better by solving a frustrating problem involving buttons/knobs, grime, and shiny black kitchen appliances…Also, your shirt is totally from The Oatmeal. How do I know? It’s already on my wishlist for the holidays this year–right behind the “I <3 Sriracha” shirt! 🙂 P.S. I think you might be my geeky Internet-y soul mate or something (sorry, hubby). Next thing I know, you’ll be referencing “Adventure Time” or “The Simpsons” or “King of the Hill” or something equally awesome.
MicheleN I had a customer at the Irish Pub ask for Sriracha one morning. He did get a funny look before I could compose myself. Yes, sriracha is good, but I’m willing to bet that it isn’t common in Irish Pubs…Are you kidding? I <3 King of the Hill (That boy ain’t right, is a frequent refrain around here) and I grew up on The Simpsons. Now I have to seek out Adventure Time.
HeatherSolos MicheleN I was imagining Sriracha on something like shepherd’s pie, so I was kind of with the guy until I read the word “morning”. Eeeesh! “Adventure Time” is on Cartoon Network at 7:30 PM on Mondays (and reruns have been airing at least a bajillion times per week). The characters often use the terms “mathematical!” and “algebraic!” instead of “cool!” or “awesome!” My favorite is, “what the math?!” in place of, well, you know…
I had a home where I used my washer & dryer as my ‘bar’ for parties. It was simply in a good spot of the home, I put a table runner over the two and set up my bar. I was told on more than one occassion I had the cleanest washer & dryer & laundry room they’d ever seen 🙂 But I love the Q-tip idea for the nooks & crannies.
I received a small travel pack of precision Q-tips as a bonus when I purchased a large box of regular Q-tips. I actually have hid them and hoard them for myself! I use them for make-up un-application. LOL! I don’t wear make-up often and I need an ‘eraser’ a lot! LOL!
