Spring Cleaning Week at The Frisky has made it seem like we’re all a couple of Martha Stewarts hoovering Adderall. Lies! While we’re not gross-gross, I do feel it is my duty as a Frisky staffer to present an honest portrait of us: we’re a little gross. Julie’s desk is a wasteland of half-eaten snacks, Ami’s is covered in papers, mine has bagel crumbs stuck to coffee stains, and Amelia’s got a half-drunk plastic cup of red wine on hers that’s been sitting there for days. (Not even sure what that’s about — possibly this?) In conclusion, we probably shouldn’t be lecturing ANYBODY about cleanliness.
So, in the interest of full disclosure, we’re going to — anonymously! — share some gross things we do in the bathroom which we would never admit to doing.
Please don’t tell our mothers. Keep reading »
All week, we’ve been focused on spring cleaning the clutter out of our lives, from our inboxes (guilty!) to our cars to our bad dating habits to our goodie drawers. We’ve swapped unwanted clothing, cleaned up some sex messes, made it simple to decide whether to keep it or toss it. But in this modern age, spring cleaning doesn’t end in the realm of the physical — our online lives could use some tidying up as well. You know what I’m talking about … your Facebook friends list. It’s time to clean house, ya hear? Here are eight types of folks you should unfriend without a second thought. Keep reading »
You know you’ve done it right if your sheets are ripped off the bed, if you’re covered in edible chocolate and lube, sweat running down your chest, and the neighbors are pounding on the wall for you to shut up. Messy sex is good. Cleaning up after can be a buzzkill. We want you to go for it. Be uninhibited. Don’t let the anxiety of post-sex cleanup keep you from going all out in bed. Have your messy sex, but know how to clean up when you’re done. Here are some tips for tidying up after getting down.
To cap off Spring Cleaning Week, we thought it would be fun to explore the topic of cleaning with an astrological twist. How does each sign go about tidying up the house? Which signs dive into chores with unbridled enthusiasm? Which signs are incapable of doing the dishes without complaining the entire time? Read on to find out! Keep reading »

For the most part, I’m a pretty neat and tidy gal. I make my bed every morning, my apartment is almost always spotless, and I’m really anal about having a pretty high level of order in all areas of my life. But there is one area in my life where my OCD tendencies are nowhere to be found — my email inbox. The situation is a legit disaster. I only delete emails when I have to, i.e. when my inbox is so full that I can no longer send or receive any messages. The Frisky staff is officially fed up. The task of deleting as much email that has accumulated has become so daunting that I’ve just put it off … until now. Spring Cleaning Week — okay, and the staff’s threats of mutiny — was the excuse I needed to finally face my email hoarding problem head on. This is my journey.
