The maid is off today

Teenagers can be quite a challenge and when you have triplets that are seventeen, challenge is putting is mildly.

I have triplet boys and that makes it even worse. Each of them plays on a different sports team and the overall smell in their room is that of a sweaty locker room. I needed to clean the room for some out of town guests that would be staying over so I asked them to help out. You know, pick up the laundry, put away all the sports equipment, things like that. Well, two hours later I walked in and it looked exactly the same. They were all on their phones or playing a video game. I lost it! I started telling them that it was the maid’s day off and they better get the room clean. They finally did but when I walked in the place still stunk. The overall air quality in the room was horrible and I wanted our guests to feel welcome not repulsed. I knew I needed a way to clean the air, fast! I headed to the hardware store to purchase the best air purification device they sold. I also bought air fresheners to spray the room with. The device I bought has a HEPA filter and a chamber where you can put in a deodorizer too. I love this little machine. Within a few hours of plugging it in, the place smelled much better. I left it running for two days before our guests arrived and I changed the filter again that morning. I was thrilled when they commented on how clean the room was, especially since it belonged to three teenagers.
