The old fashion way
About once a month, I like to turn my mattress and spray disinfectant on my box spring and mattress and anything within five feet of where I sleep. I have always done this, even though I don't recall my mother ever doing it, or anyone telling me to do it. Maybe my fear of bugs, and when I was a kid, hating it when an adult would say, "sleep tight, and don't let the bed bugs bite".
I buy disinfectant spray in
LYSOL...plain Lysol. Guess what else I buy?
This old fashion Lysol Concentrate. Why? Because it kills every germ that ever thought about settling in my living space. I put it in certain loads of laundry like sheets (oh what a shock). When I was married, I used a tad of it in loads of clothes that had heavy sweat
Not so fast! I love to check out products and find out how they've been marketed over the years. Like I did with Lifebuoy Soap and Tide that you didn't have to rinse out.
I have to say, I was really shocked at what I found out about Lysol. Maybe I'm the only one who didn't know that our mothers, if you're old like me, grandmothers were probably shamed into actually using this stuff to save their self-esteem, and maybe their marriages with perfect feminine hygiene.
Here's a sample of ads. I only left the text on one, because it's hard to read, but they all basically say the same thing...Use me or else. And believe me, there are plenty more!
It seems to me that the perfect wife spent quite a bit of time making sure everything was Spring Fresh...between Lysol and Lifebuoy. I mean really, wouldn't you just want to bust your behind to make your man happy...so he could reward you with the perfect Christmas gift?
or maybe this one?
