Scrape of the Day #2401

This afternoon, in preparation for our third Harry Potter movie night, we finally pulled ourselves together and cleaned the apartment today. We scrubbed the toilet, polished the sink, swept the kitchen, vacuumed the living room, scrubbed down the oven, recycled many months of accumulated junk mail, tidied the game shelf – and brave Pearce set himself to effacing the plaque that plagued our bathtub. Without a set of cleaning chemicals, armed with nothing more than a pair of plastic customer loyalty cards, he scraped away an unbelievable amount of condensed soap and grime. There was enough at the end that we could have compressed it into a new bar of soap; instead we banished it, and marveled at the new shine in the floor of our bathtub.

Pearce had a good attitude toward the work, as he always does. We’ll be able to live in a clean home now – until, of course, the grit builds up again, so slow and subtle that we won’t notice until we need another day like this. We’ll be ready for it.
