Dear apartment dwellers: It's time to stop living with dust bunnies, spiderwebs, crumby floors, long hairs tangled in rugs, in bathrooms, in lives.
And now, a story...
Once upon a time, Heather let her cleaning duties go by the wayside. On one fated day (the 25th of April, 2006, to be exact), she walked out of her office and into her bedroom only to see a most disturbing sight: a large insect caught in a giant dust bunny, going nowhere.
The little guy was trying to get away, run forward, walk back, anything. But it was too late. The dust bunny had taken hold. Seeing this, Heather stared in sick humor, awe and disgust. And she realized that with spring, we can expect the occassional creature in our home, but there's just no need for dust bunnies on the unwanted guest list.
All month, Janel and I will be looking for tips on great products, how to make cleaning fun, ways to structure it into our lives, and any other AT-reader insight out there. Do not fear; we are all in this together.
