This

This is not a battlefield.
This is not the remnants from a civilization forced to flee.
This is not a roach motel.

This is the dinner table.
After #MaxLoco.

This defeated me many times. It left me bent, broken of spirit and beaten.
I would battle. Winning small skirmishes every so often, but always losing the war.
I could feel the Sisyphean task spreading, growing, infecting every waking moment, every waking hour.
Losing my religion.

At least, I was.
But I have seen redemption. 
I have tasted sweet, sweet victory.
I have a Swiffer WetJet.
And now this table, this chair, this hardwood floor (oh how I cursed you hardwood floor!) are clean.
Yes, actually clean.
And with such speed and convenience that it finally feels like the tide is turning.

#MaxLoco, time to bring that toilet training.
Your unleashed excreta no longer terrify me.
This is my #ManClean.

And I'm giving away an Ultimate Swiffer Man Clean Kit

I am lucky that the MAN in my house assists in cleaning duties. #ManClean is such a great movement!
