The UfYH Lexicon

20/10: 20 minutes of cleaning, followed by a 10-minute break.

45/15: Like a 20/10, but longer.

Android app: Forbidden words. We’re working on it. Asking more will not make it get made faster. Just kidding, it exists. Check the sidebar.

Drain volcano: Pour baking soda down your drain. Follow with vinegar. The exact measurements are “some” and “a bunch.” If you have metal pipes (not PVC), follow with a kettleful of boiling water. Good for slow-running drains.

Excuses are boring: The unofficial Team UfYH motto.

Freestyle challenge: A 20/10 or 45/15 done on whatever needs doing.

Invisible corner: That area in your home that has had accumulated random shit in it for so long that it’s become part of the landscape. Often found in corners, at the end of counters, or, really, anywhere. It’s been there long enough that your eye doesn’t even register it when you look around.

Marathon: Cleaning for hours on end with no breaks. Marathons are bad.

Sink Zero: No dirty dishes in the sink (or next to it, near it, on it, etc.).

Team UfYH: The people who use the UfYH system.

Wash, dry, and put it away, goddammit!: The three steps of laundry and dishes.

White vinegar: A damn miracle. Vinegar can clean just about anything, and it’s cheap and easily found.
