there was wall to wall beer cans, wine and whiskey bottles, burnt food on the stove and tables, 2 guys sleeping on the floor and one on the couch, (He locks his rm when gone, which is everyweekend during BB season)
He had just told the rm mate that had the party to get a crew and clean it up.. We went to breakfast and came back to the house in about an hour and the place was spotless, just 3 bags of beer cans and 4 empty kegs on the porch. i didn't think they would ever get the stove and furniture clean without a pressure washer but they did.

All of the germs growing in those petre dishes was eye opening. In a few episodes they recommended a few drops of Tea Tree Oil in the cleaning solution to kill bacteria.

My house has never looked anywhere near this bad. Clutter? That was just nastiness, not clutter.
There is no way that lazy women is going to keep that house clean and orderly!

Scroll down; there's quite a number of episodes there...seems like there's a common theme of the clutter just getting to the point of being overwhelming and hopeless.
Don't know what possessed me to watch one after another of these...kind of morbid fascination, like "rubberneckers" who all slow down and stare at a bad wreck...

And yeah, this 'Dirty Begger' went out and bought some more cleaning supplies today. My stove, refrigerator and cabinets get it tomorrow.

I spray painted them! On each side! They look wonderful. It took some doing to re-string them. (one of the strings broke) but I did it. And the shades look like new. I saved a lot of money as these were custom made. It was a little difficult re-pleating them, but I kept them open for a couple days, all pleated up to the top to reinforce the folds-and they look like new fabric. I am amazed.
Thanks for posting that horrifyingly inspirational series!!

I have to say that besides the eye-openers it's given me in regards to my own hidden (forgotten) filth (think under the stove or when was the last time you pulled your washer or dryer away from the wall besides when you moved?), besides all that - I've been jotting down cleaning recipes from the show.
Most of the cleaning Kim and Aggie promote is with natural products - vinegar, lemons, etc. I figure if those items can clean THAT filth, I'm feeling pretty confident it can tackle my everyday bits around the house!
Also - I've saved episodes that I find particularly horrifying - I use them as my kickstart cleaning. I can't fight the overwhelming urge to scrub everything down to the cat's whiskers after watching one of those episodes!

I am pretty cool with dying, just another adventure in my souls journey on its path toward enlightenment.
