Conversation Hearts: Alternative Floor Washing

::: Phone Rings :::

Cait: Hi Mom ( has "the sound" in her voice )

Me: Hi Cait, what are you doing? ( thinking, ut-oh, now what )

Cait: Well, washing the kitchen floor.

Me: Really? Why? Did you spill something?
( 'cause I know floor washing isn't routine in her life )

Cait: No ... but I was wondering if you could come over for a minute.

Me: To help wash the floor? :smirk:

Cait: No, I have that under control, it's the tons of bubbles coming out from the bottom of the dishwasher I can't handle.

Me: Did you use dishwasher soap?

Cait: Sorta, I used "Joy" 'cuz I ran out of Cascade.


Me: Next time try Quick Shine ... works great on floors.


Tonight is the deadline for Sunshine's contest. If you haven't left a comment mentioning you linked from my blog please do ... if you already have, thank you.

Now that brings to mind a whole new meaning to 'scrubing bubbles'..
;)

I've never made a mistake like this and I owe it all to an episode of the Brady Bunch. ;)

Casdok said...

Well the floor got a good clean!

Mary Alice said...

Bless her little heart!

Nancy said...

lis: I said the same thing to her.

Corky: I missed that one, hummm

cas: yeah, Caitlin is a novel of adventures =)

mary alice: wait until one of your girls move out ... it really is sweet when they call for things like this.

Joan said...

She knows who to call. First the sink now this!

Robin said...

Not laughing. Really. Not at all.

*splutter*

Sorry, I choked from trying to hold it in. I lied, I'm laughing hysterically. Sounds like the time I tried bubble bath in a jacuzzi. Oops...

Biddy said...

hahahahahaha i always wondered what would happen if i put dawn in the dishwasher...now i know!

oh how i miss having a dishwasher...

Michael said...

I learned this lesson the hard way as well. And that you can't hardboil and egg in the microwave.

I used to throw my sponge in the dishwasher to sanitize it. There was just enough soap to create a big mess too.

Wow, I'm chalk-full of experiences today.

Michael said...

Is that even a word? "chalk-ful" it doesn't look right to me...my OCD is coming out.

delmer said...

What's interesting is that Cascade doesn't come cascading out of a dishwasher the same way Joy does.

(I've cleverly avoided the part where I'd say, "... which of course, causes no Joy.")

Patience said...

She will not do that again. Ever. Hyuck!!

Nancy said...

Joan : I am her Jill-of-all-Trades

Robin: It's OK, I laughed too!

Lori : I am sure you can give me a few heads up on more to come.

Biddy: DON'T DO IT, lol

Michael: HB egg? Well take my word for it, spaghetti squash too! lol

Delmer: It was a Cascade of Joy indeed!

Patience: You are right, but with Cait, there will be something else.
I love that girl =)

Sherry said...

lesson learned...and this is one anyone could make...reminds me of Lucy and Ethel!!

Kevin Charnas said...

HHAA!! Those were some clean dishes, no? or at least soapy ones...

San said...

I remember doing the same thing with my first dishwasher.
BTW, still can't get my pic to post w/the comment. Any more suggestions?

Spider Girl said...

This is why I'm leery of dishwashers. I can imagine myself doing this without a stretch of imagination.

Jen M. said...

Yep - I had that Brady Bunch episode in my head, too!! Did she break the dishwasher?

Linda and her Surroundings said...

I once put an enitre bottle of shampoo into a spa bath. It was quite scary how many bubbles appeared.

Dfunkadelic said...

OMG!
I've SO done that! Hasn't everyone?!?
