What would happen if Microsoft (or your company) needed to design the box for an iPod?

A coworker forwarded this brilliant video to me, and I had to share. After 15 years of marketing experience, it makes me laugh, because it is *all* true.

I hate to clean bathtubs and showers

Who doesn't? It's a gross job and time-consuming.

Unfortunately, I'm also picky about cleanliness.... So I use a squeegee to wipe down my shower every day. It's not enough to avoid having to clean once in a while, but it's better than nothing.

A few years ago, Dave and I had a cleaning girl named Bridgette come to our house every other week. Her primary duty? Bathrooms! Theoretically we could have hired her for more hours to do additional rooms, such as the bedrooms, etc. But, really, all I really needed was someone to do those yucky bathrooms. Alas, Bridgette was expensive, and I had a job-loss issue at the time, so we had to bid her adieu.

Dave still mentions Bridgette and asks me if we can hire her back. There's a part of me that wants to, but the $50 every other week seems like a lot of money, especially when you have two BMW lease payments.

Well, today I found out from the BuzzAgent team about a new product that is isn't even available yet, called the Automatic Shower Cleaner. If the claims about this product are true, then it is a dream come true. It might even help Dave forget about Bridgette.

I signed up for a coupon (see the link at the bottom of the main page), and you can be sure I'll be picking up a couple for our bathrooms. And, I'll let you know how it works -- hopefully it can do what it claims, because I *really* hate to clean those tubs and showers.
