Facetious Overcleaning

The words “abstemious,” and “facetious” both have all the five vowels in them in order.

Here’s 5 facetious tips for cleaning house.

Tip 1 If you think ovens are just for baking, think again. Ovens represent at least 9 cubic feet of hidden storage space, which means they’re a great place to shove dirty dishes, dirty clothes, or just about anything you want to get out of sight when company’s coming.

Tip 2: Clothes dryers
They work like tip 1, except bigger.

Tip 3: Washing machines & freezers
They work just like tip 2, except even bigger.

Tip 4: Never dust under what you can dust around.

Tip 5: Vacuum only the middle of the room, which is the only place people see. Don’t bother vacuuming under furniture since it takes way too long and no one looks there anyway.

Those tips might be facetious but overcleaning can waste precious time which could be used to advance God’s Kingdom. Cutting out extra housework is redeeming the time.
