Going Nuclear Chic in the Kitchen

To know me is to know that I put the “mess” in domestic. So I should not have been surprised when my mother-in-law sent me these as a “just because” gift:

I’m sure she didn’t mean anything by it, she’s actually a very loving person, so I’m doing my best not to take offense or to take it as a hint. If I didn’t know any better, I’d say it was a thoughtful gesture in light of my recent clean sink resolution¬†(which is actually going pretty, kinda sorta okay).

At any rate, I do love the retro Wonder Years vibe of these dishwashing gloves. And I’ve found that if I have the proper cleaning tools — i.e. they’re fun and/or cute — it makes the drudgery of desmudging and scrubbing all the more bearable.

Now all I need is a bubble flip and an oppressive husband and it will be just like Mad Men!
