A BIG clean mess.....

So I went out to the barn this morning, but before I left I threw in a load of laundry. I just went in to move it to the dryer and disaster has struck. The washer must have been off balance because the big econo size jug of liquid laundry soap that usually sits on the side of the washer was on the floor.....I mean all. over. the. floor. The fall must have busted the cap off. Now there's probably 15-20oz of liquid soap all over the floor and under the washer. UGH! Now comes the debate....it's under the washer, can't it just stay there? Do I really have to move the washer to clean soap out from under it?!? Granted I wouldn't be the one moving the washer but still! Ugh and what a waste of soap....


****ps- it wasn't too bad until the cat ran through it...
yeah, soapy sliding frantic cat running down the hall. Comical yes, but I had to catch her and wash her feet which she did not like, big suprise. Then there were nice soapy paw prints to mop up. I'm getting to the preggo point where I debate on picking things up off the floor, is it worth the bending to retrieve an item? Crawling around on tile moping wasn't in my plan today...

However, Mom had a good idea. The laundry room floor was mostly clean, so I'm just using my dirty clothes to mop up soap and wash them as I go. I'm starting to run out of things to wash, I'm done with clothing items and on to sheets and blankets!

Putting tape on a cat's back paw is soooo funny. And less messy then liquid soap!
