Shower Show

Just reread one of Nony’s old posts that you’re supposed to hang your shower curtain to dry- in the shower.

WHAT??? You’re supposed to wash those things???   That’s a new one on me!

My MO usually is to ignore the mildew and black mold, until it has crept ALL the way up the curtain, and I get contact dermatitis from brushing into it.

In my defense: I inherited this shower curtain. Oh wait- that makes it worse, doesn’t it???

Just like those those dratted 2 year old dishes of mine.

 

 

sigh

 

 

I’m not made outta money, ya know!   I can’t afford to replace that thing every month!   (Even tho I totally buy them at the dollar store!)

But washing it, and hanging it back up to dry- huh.   Who woulda thunk??

(Even though, I’m pretty sure this is what Mama did, now that I stop and think about it, because when I lived at home, our shower curtain was never dirty.   (Or any other space in our house!!   Mama was a real live Cleanie!!!)  (And I was allergic.  Not to her, just to being a Cleanie.)

So, will have to ponder on this some more…..  until the mildew  has turned into a living entity, and strangled me in the shower, probably….    When that happens, that’ll show me!     I shoulda listened to Nony and Mama!!

 

Under Cover, Under Counter

This looks bad, I know.

This is another one of those cases where you just need to be grateful we don’t have smell-o-vision.

Yeah, it kinda… um, how can I put this delicately… stinks.  Like mildew.

Now, I wasn’t aware that the sink leaked.  Until the day when I needed a cleaning wipe.  Yeah, remember that 1 day when I actually cleaned the sink???

I reached under there, and that whole towel was wet.  Nasty surprise!  But did I do anything about it?  Like remove it?  Throw it away?? C’mon, you know me better than that by now!!  (For those of you who are new, I’m lazy, and a slob– SHOCKER- right?  And a big time procrastinator.  That’s all, back to your regularly scheduled post.)

Sadly, that wet towel is still there, stinking, to this day. sniff, sniff  (It’s my allergies, I’m not crying over spilled milk, or whatever the heck that liquid is.  Sometimes, ignorance is bliss.)

Well, I found out it was only water, (YAY) and not from the sink (double yay!).  Did you see the plastic jugs to the left of the pipe?  Turns out there were 3 of ’em full of water, for our emergency stash.  Until suddenly, no water at all!  Not sure what happened, but there’s holes in them now.  At least now I won’t be afraid to take up the towel, YAY!  Maybe I’ll even do it now!  {Here’s hoping!}

You’ll be happy to know, the under counter was cleaned by the time I moved out, on June 30, 2015.  Yay, me!  (Or whomever cleaned it, who may or may not have been me.  Hint: It wasn’t me.)

(I’m so frustrated with myself right now.  I took a picture of the cleaned space.  But now I can’t find it.  (Typical slob prob.  Maybe I need to… organize (GASP!) the way I do my pix?)

Bucket Betide

I don’t know what betide means, or even if its a real word.  But  I don’t care.  I like the sound of it, so here it stays.

This bucket has been in the corner of my bathroom for a l-o-n-g time.  Like, before Dec.  That’s only 5 months, not too bad, right?  (Probably depends on who you ask!)

Now, I see it every time I go into the bathroom.  I’ve even tripped over it once or twice. but have I bothered to do anything about it?

Well, what do you think?  Since I’m writing a post about it, you’d be right in assuming it’s still there, still in the way.

I’m not even positive what’s in there.  I peeked in once, but didn’t feel like pursuing it.  I’m kinda scared to fully investigate.  One thing in there is a towel, so I’m thinking by now, it’s gotta be stinky and covered with mildew.  Eeeww!

20150516_123456Yes, there is a towel, a measuring cup, and a long handled spoon.  I saved that because I know I can sanitize it!  (Not sure what the purple thing is, I didn’t dig down that far!)

If PP has gotten along this long without that towel, I’m quite sure she’ll survive without it.

My thinking is, to just grab the whole bucket, hold my nose, and run outside with it.  Maybe bag it up whole, and go straight to the dumpster.  Do not pass Go, do not collect $200.  (oh, if only I could collect money for taking out the trash!  I’d do it 5 times a day!)

The bucket went bye bye.  RIP
