Come Clean, Parents! | What’s Your Real Cleaning Style?


Raising kids is the toughest job in the world, and no parent is perfect (in spite of what’s posted on your Instagram feed). Fortunately, appearances don’t matter when we’re spending time with our families, and we get to be who we really are. And the fact is, from time to time, we all have to make some compromises—smelly, funky, messy compromises. While most of us are fairly consistent in how we deal with the messes life throws our way, how we deal with those messes can say a lot about our approach to parenting.

Starting November 10, Jelmar, a cleaning products industry leader and maker of CLR®  and Tarn-X®  is giving you a chance to come clean about your personal cleaning habits. Are you the mom or dad who plans for everything and always expects the unexpected? Do you believe in working smarter, not harder? Or maybe you only clean when you have to, because after all—that mess will still be there tomorrow.

Whatever the case may be, it’s time to come clean and join us in celebrating all the hero parents out there by taking our quiz here to find out your real cleaning style. And just to show there’s no judging, everyone who takes the quiz through November 24 will automatically qualify to win weekly prizes; plus, one lucky winner will be selected to receive a Jelmar product grand prize.
