An Inconvenient Refill

Posted by Lizzie on 02/05/07

pledge.jpgWe usually try to do good for the environment*, but that part of our sad life, as of about four minutes ago, is over. Are we the last person to discover the Pledge Duster Plus, for Christ’s sake? The spray bottle that allows you SIMULTANEOUSLY polish as you dust? The glovelike tines that surround the fluffy head? The super-fresh scent? The fact that it only comes with one refill…well, that’s the part where we destroy the environment. But fuck Al Gore–he has maids to enable his Powerpoint lifestyle, maids that you know throw out his recyclable cloths and sneak this shit in when he goes off to shame the President on some other midwestern college campus. We’re sticking. And if anyone else knows of any other wondrous innovations in the world of cleaning of which we’ve remained woefully ignorant, please let us know immediately. It’s like Juneteenth up in here.

*Humor us

  1. So, do you like cleaning your shower? Yeah, me neither.

  2. Surely you’re not the last person to hear of these innovations. I just have one question. What the hell is dust? (Isn’t my furniture supposed to be gray and furry?)

  3. I’m always so scared of that stuff–doesn’t it clean your lungs too when in sprays out? Does it really work? What if you have a shower curtain? THIS IS VERY IMPORTANT!

    Look at those maids bounce around. It’s lucky the feminist movement never happened or anything.

  4. The Swiffer! This is the single best low-tech invention of the last 10 years. It weighs nothing, the head swivels easily to get under stuff, and it picks up almost all the crap on our hardwood floors (5 rooms and a hall) in less than 5 minutes.

    But I’m preaching to the choir, right?
