Smell-O-Meter

on April 5, 2009

They say that memory is strongly associated with smell and I think we all have exmples of this. A few months ago, I purchased Method cleaner at Target that was dye and fragrance free. My thought was that it would be a purer cleaner and not use all those chemicals. The problem is – it is odorless. So after I have scrubbed my counters and cleaned for an hour, it doesn’t smell clean. I am so conditioned to associate cleanliness with that fake citrus smell or fake spring freshness smell, that smelling nothing, doesn’t seem clean. So, after I wiped down my counters this morning. I pulled out the Windex with Lime Action and wiped them down again. And then, an only then, did I feel like I had cleaned.

April Challenge update:

April 4: Plastic food containers
Oh my goodness, I have way too many leftover food containers that simply don’t work. Either they are missing a lid or have been warped or whatever. I bring my lunch, so I enjoy containers a lot, but if they don’t work,they are simply taking up space.

April 5: Refrigerator
This was more of a cleaning than a de-cluttering. But it was definitely needed.
