Clorox Ick-Tionary: Win a $25 Gift Card + More

I'm sure you all remember the iconic scene in the movie, The Wizard of Oz, when Dorothy and Toto are desperately trying to run back to the house, while the tornado rages in the background.

I don't know about you but as a child, that was one of the scariest parts of the movie for me, besides the wicked witch, of course!

While tornadoes aren't too common here in Northeast Ohio (though more common than from where I'm from, upstate NY), there is such a thing as tornadoes inside the house.

What do I mean?

Well, as a mom of a 10 year old boy and 3 cats, it could only mean one thing:

Colassalcyclone: Definition: A tornado-like mess.

Combine my son Cam, 3 cats, and when his friends visit, and it has the potential to be devastation! Especially over the winter, with the lake effect snow and bitter cold temps, the kids are naturally inside, playing Minecraft and piling LEGOs on the floor. Then in the spring, they are tracking in mud and bouncing balls off the walls!  The boys have so much energy and it's hard to keep up with all the mischief they get into. Summertime means keeping the floors dry, when they come in from water gun fights and forget to dry off!

And when they are hungry, forget about it! The tornado quickly moves from the living room to the dining room to the kitchen. Soda cans everywhere, crumbs, napkins, you name it! I'm always telling them throw away your trash, but I am always on the clean up crew of the tornado aftermath.

Sometimes the tornado is an F1, but usually an F4/F5, the strongest tornado, capable of leveling homes, trees and my patience!

I know all moms will be able to relate to this new Clorox Ick-tionary. Whether it's a big mess or a small one, moms (and dads) are always on clean-up duty. This creative new word Colassalcyclone is now part of the new Clorox Ick-tionary. The words are hilarious and really creative! You can also submit your own words to the Clorox® Ick-tionary.
