I have heard repeatedly that women find men who clean the house sexy. Well, I’ve been a stay-at-home dad for over 18 years and have yet to find my picture on the cover of People Magazine’s Sexiest Man Alive issue.
Being a stay-at-home parent means most housework falls on your shoulders. And let me tell you, that weight is heavy. I had hoped that when my kids became teenagers, some of the burden of cleaning would lighten up. Nope. Turns out, teens don’t like to clean or are very good at it. In fact, they’re just smellier and messier.
I don’t clean the house because women find it sexy (They don’t), nor do I clean the house because it’s fun (It’s not). I clean because it has to be done. Also, I clean because I’m a neat freak. When my house is messy, I feel as though life is amid chaotic turmoil. But that’s between me and my therapist.
One way to make sure the house is clean, disinfected, and ecofriendly is by using products made by Force of Nature. Force of Nature is EPA registered and uses 3 clean ingredients that kill 99.9% of germs. This includes Monkey Pox, COVID-19, Staph, MRSA, Salmonella, and more. No bleach, alcohol, or fragrances are used. With your order, you’ll also receive BPA reusable bottles, which also cuts down on plastic waste.
Since my youngest two are still willing to help me clean, it’s important for me they are using cleaners that are not harmful. The glass cleaner is ammonia free, which is good for their hands and they’re not breathing in toxic chemicals. In fact, all their cleaners are chemically free, which is nice when I’m cleaning the oven and leaning over the liquid that I sprayed.
Now, I didn’t do very well in chemistry class and I made it through by the smart people around me. So, I’m not great at explaining how Force of Nature uses 3 ingredients to disinfect and clean your home. But here it goes. Salt, water, and vinegar are combined in a container and it is electronically charged. Okay, stay with me here. The electrical current breaks apart the molecules and turns the mixture into sodium hydroxide and hydrochloric acid. I have no idea how that works, but it sounds cool. You can tell your kids when you clean that you’re doing a science experiment.
As much as I would like to beat the likes of Paul Rudd, The Rock, Brad Pitt, and George Clooney for the cover of People’s Magazine, my main goal is to provide a healthy and clean environment for my kids. Sorry, that’s not entirely true. My main goal is to not see a dirty house, so I can feel good about myself. Cleaning is self-care.
During my 18 plus years of being a dad, I have talked to a lot of parents who are concerned about the chemicals they spray around their house. Having a clean house does not mean you have to sacrifice your skin and lungs to achieve one.
