Tilex "Cancel the Mold Show in Your Bathroom" Sweepstakes

I am about the furthest thing from a clean freak that you can imagine. But there are certain things I'm rather persnickety about. One of those things is my main floor bathroom, the one that everyone always wants to use (often at the same time) even though there are two other bathrooms in this house. Since there are six of us, and we often have guests, this room gets a lot of use, which means it needs to be cleaned a lot more frequently than other rooms in my house. Because otherwise I'd be totally grossed out. There are other reasons too, for example, it's the smallest room in the house, and therefore fairly easy to clean pretty quickly. So I feel accomplished without too much effort. Also, it's the one room my guests go in and close the door, so they have lots of time and privacy to notice how clean (or not) it is. We have an older house and we don't have a ventilation fan in our bathroom, plus we have a window in the shower (genius, no?), so we struggle more than usual against mold and mildew build-up. Trying to keep the walls as dry as possible by using a squeegee after showering helps, as does frequent cleaning. Cleaning with a bleach-based product, in particular, helps to kill mold and keep the bathroom mold and mildew free.

Keeping the bathroom clean while battling the ever-encroaching mold and mildew can be a challenge in any household. I, for one, need all the help I can get. To meet that challenge, Tilex has released some new products to help you keep your bathroom fresh, clean, and mold and mildew-free. To celebrate, they are hosting the "Cancel the Mold Show in Your Bathroom" sweepstakes. From now until March 16, 2012 you can visit the Tilex Facebook page for more information and to enter the sweepstakes. While there, you can check out Sonny Mold and Frankie Mildew and watch their funny video. Tilex is giving away three 40" flat screen televisions and 10 Netflix subscriptions, so you definitely don't want to miss out! Share the sweepstakes with your friends and you'll get an extra entry for each friend you invite to enter!
