Open House: What Are Your Friends' or Family Members' Weirdest Cleaning Habits?

Open House: What Are Your Friends' or Family Members' Weirdest Cleaning Habits?

The other Saturday, when the hubz and I were cleaning the house, he turned to me and yelled over the vacuum, "Do you ever vacuum the sofa?"

"Yes, of course," I yelled back. At this point, he picked up the vacuum and ran it over the sofa.

I had to laugh, even as I wondered what the weight of the vacuum was doing to the upholstery. "No, you weirdo! With the hose attachment!"

"What's that?" he asked, completely baffled. After a quick instructional, he was well versed in the art of using the vacuum's hose attachment.

My husband's not the only person I know with some funny cleaning habits. A friend of mine uses socks that have lost their pairs as her cleaning rags, which is definitely an eco way to go. She also says that putting her hand inside the sock actually helps her to tackle more surface area in less time.

So tell me, what are your friends' or family members' oddest cleaning habits?
