Well, last night I used Comet to clean the @#$%^% coffee stain off the counter top.
Our counters here in the apartment are super chintzy. They will absorb any color and stain easily, and will not let those stains go.
. The coffee machine is DH's baby, and he gets coffee crud all over the counter, below the machine, next to sink..you get idea.
Now there is no coffee crud on the counter top. Say THAT 3 times fast.
I also put away all the dishes, got the next dishload started and have tidied up the counter/kitchen area.
Oh: for hampers, I bought this one: http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B000TFKMJA/ref=oss_product
It has 3 compartments, fits in a nook in our hallway, has sturdy bags...I love it!!!
But I had to put signs up on Darks Go Here and Whites Go There for DH. *shakes head* Can't win them all, I guess.
