So, Clorox gave me the awesome opportunity to attend a live screencast with Samantha Bee, star of The Daily Show, and let me tell you.. it was so much fun! I have to be honest… I usually am okay with the 5– well I consider it 3 second rule… as long as I have just recently… like earlier that morning, cleaned the floors. Then, I think back to  the ol’ Mythbusters episode where they really checked out this 5 second rule… and there was bacteria on everything. YUK! Clorox even funded a study just recently that found the same thing! So, now what do you think about that rule?? Huh? Huh? What???

Well, Clorox can help you put your mind to ease, at least a little bit, by helping you get rid of a good amount of that bacteria! Check out to find out more information about some of the most common places that germs can be found, and how you can combat those germs with Clorox Bleach! If you’re like me, then you’ve probably always thought of bleach as “Bad for the environment”.. You should totally check out Clorox’s page about Bleach and the Environment.

There is just so much stuff to explore in that you can spend a good while learning new things about bleach, disinfecting, and keeping your family healthy!

In keeping with simple and surprising, Clorox is offering a prize package to one of my readers! How cool is that? They want to help you keep your house germ free so you don’t have to worry so much about these nasty germs that could be just about anywhere!

    Okay we follow the 5-second rule with a twist…you have to pick said object up and do the “shake and blow” since we have dogs in our house and they shed.

    I don't mind the 5 sec rule with food . I usually don't mind because I do try to keep my floor as clean as can be.

    My husband has no problem following the 5 second rule but for me I can't handle the 5 second rule no matter how clean I know my floors are I still have to throw out what drops on the floor. Besides with our little dog Buddy nothing stands a chance lasting more than a few seconds on the floor.

    I would only consider using the 5 second rule if my floor is spotlessly clean — and it usually isn't :) *Thanks* for the giveaway!
