Despite strong resistence to reality TV shows in general, I've started watching How Clean Is You House every Wednesday. Each week, a pair of housecleaning professionals visit a particularly unkempt house and turn it into something the health inspector wouldn't throw a wobbly at.
One reason I enjoy seeing strangers' homes put to the test, and failing, is that it makes me feel so much better about the state of my own home.
The other reason I'm compelled to watch the show is that it motivates me to do something about that corner of my bathroom, behind the toilet, which is almost never cleaned because it's too dirty.
I'm sure I'm not the only person on the planet who won't clean something because it's too dirty.
Besides, I'm going to have to host a mother's group one day.
