24: Sofa, So Good
The Scrub Jockeys have questions about couches. How to clean them? Can they even be cleaned? And what about a one-time semi-public couch that has seen dozens—nay, hundreds!—of butts?
We dive into all that (hint: you’re going to need to find the label), as well as a call from Hanna’s Mom (of course) about The Lost Bi-Mart Card.
This lost Bi-Mart Card.
We’re also glad to celebrate the return of SOSOS, though this one is a contentious one!
JT is unhappy with the mess in her home, but isn’t sure how to deal with it. She works a lot and her fiancee doesn’t seem to be meeting her halfway. She shared a chore chart with us that includes the frequency of the chores, which got us wondering: How often do you sweep? Wipe down the front of the cupboards? Do you take out the trash on a schedule, or as-needed? And how does other labor—emotional, for example—factor into chore division?
Plus! Andrew tells a truly horrifying tale of a battle waged in his kitchen. Many lives were lost, albeit extremely small and irritating ones.
We also hear from a listener who has discovered a most foul secret about what is otherwise an absolute luxury: The water dispenser on her refrigerator is downright GRIMY. Here are the photos she sent.
Some of the stuff we talked about today on the pod:
Hanna’s cool straw/bottle brush thingy is kind of like this.
Andrew also has a bottle brush from (of course!) Grove.
Listener Crow Teeth tweeted us that they found this glass refillable Mrs. Meyer’s soap dispenser which is basically our dream.
Solvent- vs. water-based cleaners is an interesting topic that we’d like to dive into further.
