If you have kids or have spent longer than about five minutes with a child that’s under 6 years of age, you have an idea of how gross they can be. I kind of wish I could be so carefree — walk around with tomato sauce all over my face, water on my shirt, or jelly in my hair. Who cares, right?! I’ve got places to be! No time to clean up. Besides, it’s hardly noticeable!

That’s definitely what my kids are thinking. And it’s pretty embarrassing when we walk into the grocery store and I notice that one of them has half of their lunch still hanging out on their shirt. I want to put a sign on them saying “I bathe them! I promise!” but I know that when I walk down the produce aisle, the other mom shopping with her three kids can totally commiserate. Her kid has chocolate milk stains, too.

Solidarity fist bump, mom. I feel you.

Clorox knows that feel, bro.

Clorox Icktionary Think you’re the only one who’s been faced with a diaper blow-out, sick child, baby poop art and a backed-up toilet (probably with your smartphone in it) all at once? You are not alone. Clorox has been faithfully helping you clean up these messes with products from toilet bowl cleaners to disinfecting wipes, and now wants your help naming life’s biggest messes. Clorox has created their very own Ick-tionary that captures the icky every-day and over-the-top situations that everyone can relate to; from circumstances surrounding the unpleasantness of poop and pee to things like applesauce on the ceiling (how?), to the sticky situation you’re in from the accidental “reply to all” mass email.

I’ve taken the liberty of lending a hand and creating two words for the Clorox Ick-tionary:

Clorox Icktionary

You’ve been there. I’ve certainly been there. Just last week, we did well-checks for all three kids (I’m running late — oops), and I swear to cheesus, it’s like my kids see the doorknobs at a pediatrician’s office and think, “I need to lick that.”

I don’t even pretend to understand.

But I do know that it makes me feel a little better knowing that I can browse the Ick-tionary and see that I’m not the only one praying that my kids’ aren’t ingesting some rare tropical germs every day. Here’s all the great things you can do at the Ick-tionary:

  • Lean the new language of mess and check out the featured word(s) of the week
