Why cleaning the bathroom in the nude is a good idea.
If you are reading this, then I guess it’s true: using the word naked in the title gets people to click. Would you have clicked here if the title was just “Cleaning the Bathroom”?
I actually do usually clean the bathroom naked. Don’t picture it. It’s not a pretty sight. I don’t do any other housework in the buff, and I have an ensuite bathroom with no window. I don’t have B Nelson’s lack of inhibition, or her body.
I do have a couple of good reasons for this uncharacteristic behavior. There was an incident a few years ago involving bleach and one of my favorite t-shirts. Then there is the little perspiration problem that started sometime around my 40th birthday – the one that reminds me that I am still hot, it just comes in flashes now. So by cleaning without clothes on, I won’t be getting any clothes sweaty or bleach spotted. Also, I have a big jetted tub that I can’t clean without standing in anyway, so I figure I might as well get in and then I can shower when I’m done.
My hubby thinks it’s hilarious. He asked me why I don’t clean the tub after my shower, so it stays clean. I said that I am cleaning off a week’s worth of soap scum, and then I can start this week’s layer. Plus, by cleaning first and then showering, I don’t have to worry about getting Lysol on myself, because I will be washing it off right away.
So is this officially too much information? Regretting your decision to click? I must add this caveat: don’t try this anywhere except at home.
