Quiet, alone time...finally

Alone time in my house is very hard to come by. Especially since tank is EVERYWHERE! The only semi alone time I ever get is when I'm in the shower or doing dishes. And even then, its never quiet....NEVER. Someone is always yelling, or crying, or running in and out of the kitchen or bathroom. Normally big daddy keeps an eye on the little ones for me, but 1 will always find a way to escape and come find me.
That was not the case saturday night. Whenever I'm doing dishes, I can normally hear the tv in the living room, or the kids in the playroom playing with big daddy. This time it was completely silent. The only noise was the sloshing of the water. For the first time ever I had peace and quiet. I could actually hear myself think! LOL! I could actually think about what things I needed to take care of and make plans for the week. But NOOOOOOOOOOOO. Instead, all I could think about was, I wonder if Dawn was telling the truth in their commercials...could I really wash this sink full of lasagna dirtied dishes and then wash my glasses after and not get that oily film on them? Hmmmm...so I proceeded to wash all the plates, silverware, pans, etc. all the while thinking, man if this does not work, i'm going to be so pissed that I have to re-wash these damn glasses.
The time finally came...everything else was washed and there was a wine glass, 2 glass cups, and 3 sippy cups that needed to be washed. Here we go. I looked into the sink and almost just drained the water...it was gross. The water and bubbles were tinged red with marinara sauce. Small food particles were floating around. EEWWWWW!!!!! In goes the wine glass...I couldn't believe I was washing this glass with red water and red bubbles. Now here was the test. I moved the glass to the other side of the sink, turned on the water, and rinsed the glass. OMG!!!! I could not believe my eyes or what I was feeling! The glass looked amazing! Like it was the first thing I washed! WOW! I just held the glass up staring at it. I held it up to the light in every direction possible. It felt like I was inspecting a diamond for flaws (not that I know how to inspect one or anything).
Dawn, you are amazing! You are very true to your word.
I totally recommend Dawn dish soap! And besides its amazing cleaning power, you don't have to use a lot of it. Just when all the bubbles are going away, and you think you have to add more soap...just add a little bit of water, and all the bubbles come right back!

I've even read somewhere that someone used it to clean the chain on an old bicycle. Made at least the chain part look brand new. I have friends who even use it to clean the rims of their tires. Crazy. Its like coke, but obviously better.

(LOL-->so not where you thought I was going with this post huh? Shocked me too.)
