Today’s entry for Works For Me Wednesday and I Am Blissfully Domestic is an oldy but goody: Comet Cleanser. I’m not sure how old you have to be to remember this stuff. I used it in high school when I cleaned the bathroom. It’s a bluish-green powder that cleans like there’s no tomorrow. The only other cleaners that we ever needed were window cleaner for the mirror and some X-14 for the mildew.
So, why am I mentioning it now? Being the sophisticated, 21st century mom that I am, I have been using the spray cleaners that cost an arm and a leg. I have been trying to faithfully shine my porcelain sink (a la FlyLady), but it just doesn’t get all that shiny. A couple of weeks ago, I saw the Comet Cleanser for just 75 cents at the local grocery store. 75 CENTS!!!! Not the four dollars for the fancy spray stuff. I brought the Comet home and proceeded to use it to clean my sink and the bathroom. Lo and behold, it worked better than anything I’ve used in the last 20 years (and, no, it didn’t scratch). It doesn’t have any perfumes, so Mr. Math Tutor didn’t have a problem with the smell. Then, this week, I found the Comet Cleanser on sale for just 2/$1.00.
I get to save money, relive my childhood, and have a shiny sink, all at once!!!! Does it get any better than this!
