Maybe We're Not As Clean As We Thought

Hmmm I Wonder What's Growing Under There

I do my best to keep a clean house.  I regularly clean the bathroom, kitchen, floors, surfaces etc. but I have to admit there are some areas I probably don't clean as often as I should.  I can't remember the last time I cleaned behind the fridge.  I clean the oven when something gets spilled in it.  I was just reading a survey that said 47% of those polled can't remember the last time they cleaned their oven and 41% can't remember cleaning their fridge - sounds about right.  The one that got me was 25% said they can't remember the last time cleaned their bed linens.  I actually enjoy doing laundry so linens, curtains, bedding and such get washed often.  I'm not sure I could comfortably climb into a bed not knowing how long it had been since the sheets were cleaned.  For me it's the whole "outta sight outta mind" mentality.  I can't see under the fridge or stove so I convince myself it doesn't need cleaning.  Now after reading this poll I have to wonder what's growing under there.
