Oh yeah, Spring Cleaning underway

Little brings me the joy that throwing open the windows and cleaning out the closets does. I’m aware that this makes me weird; no need to tell me. But there it is.

I’ve been cleaning like a madwoman, today. That included dealing with the pile of “take it to the dry cleaner’s sometime” stuff on the bottom of my closet, and guess what! I cleaned it all here at home. With Woolite Dry Cleaner’s Secret, in my dryer. I won’t say it was like magic, because magic probably wouldn’t have required the electricity the dryer needs to run, but it was pretty cool. And my closet? Clean, baby.

Also, the nice people who sponsored the recent Clorox giveaway sent me some more coupons. So you know what that means.

One lucky Want Not reader is going to win a 6-cloth pack of Dry Cleaner’s Secret (that’s enough for 24 garments), and five coupons for free Clorox Disinfecting Wipes in a fancy decor canister. Then you can go clean your closets and your kitchen counters and everything inbetween.

Want to win ’em? First go read the contest rules and regulations, then come back here and leave a comment on this post by 11:59 p.m. Eastern (8:59 p.m. Pacific) on Sunday, April 12th, 2009 for an entry into the drawing. The winner will be determined via random drawing and white glove test. Just as soon as I find my white gloves.

Ready? Go!
