Water anyone? The hose is out back

So I found this website that helps you organize your home and then clean it on a daily basis in only 19 minutes a day. I can't even take a shower in 19 minutes a day. I was intrigued, nay facsinated by the very thought. Well, do you know what you can do with the rest of your day if the house only takes you 19 minutes. It is mind boggling I tell you. The very thought leaves me speechless. (Thank goodness the hands can still type) Her first suggestion is to make your sink shine. Now this was a bit of a tickler for me as my sinks are not ceramic or stainless steel as you can see from the photos. They are a composite material that while I find it wonderful and very lifelike, it stops just short of shiny. So I took Olive oil and coated my clean marvel as per the instructions. Anyway I followed the directions and then stood back admiring, I asked my dear husband what he thought of the job, 'Looks great,' he said and then promptly turned on the water to wash his hands. 'Wait, wait,' I cried, 'you can't use it, that would take off the clean almost shiny look.' He looked at me a bit perplexed, shook his head and walked away. I know it is a sacrifice but I think the website is right, we may not be able to have the conveniences of running water in our house but I will never again be embarassed by hard water deposits and a stained sink. Well I have to run, I need to go out back and wash my hands in the hose. Have a sparkly day.

Sounds a little inconvienent to wash your hands in the hose...all to have a shiny sink. Oh well, at least your sink looks good! :-)

So funny!!! I think I'm going to stick with stained sinks. So what's the web site? I'm dying to know what the other suggestions are.

I think using the hose out back is a small sacrifice for a clean and shiny sink!!

What a crack up! Is it the --oh man, I forget her name--Flysink Lady? Sinkfly lady? Purple Fairy Lady? I think I blocked her out of my mind after three months of following her advice. Funny funny post!

Yeah for shiny sinks, better yet, yeah for anything that stays clean for half a second. Sounds like the 19 minute lady is a winner. :)
