My Pain is Your Gain: Nursery Swab Test Results and Diaper Genie II Elite Giveaway!

I must tell you, I suffered some serious ageda between the time that I send off my germ swabs to Dr. Tanner and the time that I received my results.  Basically, instead of my children drifting off to sleep counting sheep (does anyone really do that?) I had a passing image of them counting bacteria instead…(they actually do kind of look like fuzzy little creatures,don’t they…)

Shocker of all shockers, in spite of the fact that I choose to spend time with my children and cook yummy food rather than obsessively clean, the results weren’t too bad 🙂

There were absolutely NO Enteric or E. Coli bacteria, and an underwhelming number of garden variety germs on the swabs.


Testing for Germs in the Nursery (Do I Really Want to Know?)

Have you ever wondered how many insidious germs are lurking in your apartment?

Quite honestly, I have never been that interested to find out. 

While I'd like to think that my home is pretty clean, there are four people (including two adorable and germy children) living busy lives nestled amongst a whole lot of clutter in my apartment.

Sure, I clean up messes.  If something spills, I mop it up. If someone sprinkles raisins all over my living room, I vaccuum.  I am constantly wiping counter tops and sweeping up crumbs.

But no, I would not classify my apartment at spotless…by a long shot.

My family and their clothes are clean.  Noses get wiped, hands get washed and shoes get removed and left at the door.
