13 Things I Wish Were Self-Cleaning

Today while unloading the dishwasher I noticed some gunk in the bottom corner of the dishwasher near the door hinge and upon closer inspection, there was actually tons of nasty stuff built up down there. I had to tackle it with the rubber gloves and a lot of vinegar! And it got me thinking, if dishwashers can clean dishes (which don't get me wrong, I am thankful for), why oh why can they not clean themselves?!!!

So in honor of that thought and 12 others I had after it, I give you

13 Things I Wish Were Self-Cleaning:

1. the dishwasher

2. diapers!

3. the shower

4. the sheets (especially on that top bunk!)

5. that area behind the washer & dryer

6. the refrigerator

7. the pantry

8. the dog

9. the car

10. the toliets

11. the baseboards

12. the ceiling fans/light fixtures


Wow! I had absolutely no trouble coming up with 13 things, took me like 45 seconds! I think I could go on all day!

If anyone uses my idea and actually invents a self-cleaning version of any of these, you totally owe me a free product!

Find more Thankful Thursday and Thursday Thirteen.


  1. Love this list! I would add the kids! I wish my kids were self cleaning! LoL!

    Happy Thursday Thirteen!

  2. maybe my gets out of control with random snacks and reciepts. Great list...I agree with ALL of them!

  3. Oh yes! I'm right with you. I want all these self-cleaning items as soon as they're invented.

  4. We have a regular washing machine (not an HE one)...I want that little place where I put fabric softener to be self-cleaning. How does it get *so* disgusting in there!?

    Man, that top bunk is a killer!

    Love this list...thanks for the chuckle! :)

  5. A woman after my own heart!! I enjoyed reading your Adoption Story and I'll be praying for you and your family.

  6. Don't even get me started on the toilet thing...

    Enjoy your Thursday!

  7. 1. Everything...

    Well, that's all I could think of :p

  8. My self cleaning wish list would be so long!

  9. Baseboards and dogs are probably tops on my list. I have begun making my boys clean their own toilet. Hope you have a wonderful weekend!

  10. lol. How cute. So glad that you joined us this week for THANKFUL THURSDAY! :D

  11. i second your wishes :(

  12. visiting from Thankful Thursday...I actually had an idea for a self cleaning floor, but my hubby said it was too impractical/expensive. Oh friends say get a dog. LOL


I'd love to hear what you think!
