dust bomb

better cleaning through more dirt

Two problems with regular thorough housecleaning:

- It's hard to know what you've hit and what you haven't. Dirt and grease and grime slowly build up in spots you miss, only to be discovered later.

- Motivation. 'Nuff said.

The Dust Bomb releases vast quantities of grimy (but non-toxic and harmless) dust in your house, coating every single surface. After you set off a Dust Bomb, two things are true. First, now you *have* to clean house. ("Throw your hat over the fence"?) Second, it is now *very easy* to see what you've cleaned and what you haven't. Once you've finished cleaning up the dust, you will have gotten everything else, too.
