Keep Your Mouth Shut...


Okay...so you would think that by now I would learn to keep my big mouth shut...so not the case...I think it was July 1st that a ban in Spokane County (all of WA by 2010) was put into effect that you could not use dishwashing liquid that contains more than 0.5% phosphorus in it...so they took ALL of the dishwashing liquid off the shelves. Within a week or so they came out with some new phosphorus free stuff...well...I hated it! It left a white film on all of our dishes and it was taking me 2-3 cycles through the dishwasher to get them clean. Anyways...I would offer my opinion (shocking, I know!) about the ban to anyone who would listen (or pretend to listen). My neighbor's mom was visiting and she was complaining that she would have to buy a new dishwasher because it wouldn't clean her dishes...I gave her a bottle of Cascade (I had my mom pick up a few bottles of "real" soap on one of her visits from AZ to WA...) I told her to try the soap and see if it got any better...that was a month ago. So yesterday, I got a phone call from her saying it was the soap and she was happy that she didn't have to fork out money for a new dishwasher. She then informs me that she works for KXLY (Channel 4) news and they would love to interview me about the soap...OH CRAP!!!! Anyways, after scrubbing the kitchen so they could film in there...they came and did the interview...here is a link to the interview (after you click on the link there is a little camera icon on the right where you can watch the video)...Anyways, I hope you can take a couple of things away from this...1)Learn what people do for a living before you offer your opinions & 2)Keep your opinions to yourself...Yeah, right...I will never learn! Until next time...

I'm glad YOU live next to the news lady and not me...I was on this rampage a month or so ago! lol I now travel to Colville to buy my detergent! So WORTH an hour drive! (Well, I guess I could just go to Chewelah, but my mom lives in Colville so we really just pick up the soap while we're visiting!.)
