Not me-the other parent.
Someone's bedroom in our house is not smelling too good.
And it's not just not good. It's bad.
As a mother, it is my responsibility to let that child know that picked up does not mean clean and clean does not have a smell.
Child did not like me saying that and gave me a dirty look.
At that point, the other parent in this house said,
"Clean doesn't have a smell, but dirty has a look."
Child walked out, to her room and shut the door.
And she didn't slam it.
Clean doesn't smell - did you know that it doesn't?
When we use some cleaning products, the resulting smell comes comes from those things.
So, when you come upon a bleachy clean, lemon fresh, or piney clean smell, you aren't smelling clean.
You are smelling the cleaning product.
That you associate with clean.
So you think it's clean.
But is it?
You just aren't smelling it.
And-- I love this quote!
