This right here, folks . . . is whatcha call a sponsored post.

Vote for America's Biggest Hot Mess at Zep Commercial

Remember the contest to find America’s Biggest Hot Mess? The one held by Zep Commercial?

Well . . . the ten finalists have been chosen!

Since you read this blog, I know you have some voyeuristic tendencies when it comes to looking at pictures of other people’s messes. And we (as kindred slob spirits) know a hot mess when we see one. Right? So please go check out the entries and see who most deserves to win the prize that includes a professional house cleaning AND $5,000 to keep their home clean for a year!

The names of the entries of the top ten finalists are:

 “Walt & Sam: Hot Mess Brothers”

“King Family: Hot Mess Blues”

“Americanus Hotmessius”

“America’s Hot Mess Mama”

“Party of Five”

“Kitchen Woes”

“Zip Over Zep”

“Where is My Counter?”

“Fondant Horror Story” by Catherine Campbell of Tallahassee, FL

“Hidden Items”

Judging to choose the ten finalists was based on: Creativity (35%);  Unbelievability Index (how disgusting is your mess) (25%);  Story Behind the Mess (40%)

But now, it’s up to you to determine the winner by voting! To vote, go HERE to see the entries over on Zep’s site.

Click “explore entries” and then browse through the finalists by hovering over the pictures and using the right/left scroll arrows.

Once you decide who most deserves to win, click “Vote for this” at the bottom left of that entry.

You can vote once per day through March 31!!! Really, it’s our Honorable Slob Duty to help these finalists out, right????

Like Zep on Facebook and follow Zep on Twitter! They often do cool contests and product giveaways!

Disclosure: Zep sponsored this post to get the word out about their contest. I didn’t help choose finalists in any way and have absolutely nothing to do with the actual contest other than to tell you about it. Oh, and Honorable Slob Duty isn’t even a thing. You are under no obligation whatsoever to vote. Voting is just fun.

Got a Messy House? (A Giveaway of a Zep Cleaning Products Gift Pack!!!)

It’s another sponsored post! With a giveaway!

I seriously don’t know how it happens every year at the same time, but Spring Cleaning Fever is a real thing. For me, some years are better than others, depending on how well I’ve been keeping up with the everyday stuff. There is something about nice weather that makes me want to clean a little deeper and stop ignoring things that were once easy to ignore.

This post contains TWO exciting things:

  1. A reminder about the BIG contest Zep Commercial is hosting that’s a total fit for this blog’s audience.
  2. A (waaayyyy smaller, but awesome) cleaning supplies giveaway here on A Slob Comes Clean that’s super-easy to enter!

Now for details on #1:

Need Major Intervention for Your Messy House?

Sponsored post alert!

Two assumptions I make about readers here:

  1. You might struggle (just a little) keeping your home under control. Might.
  2. You’re funny. Or at least you like funny things and/or don’t get offended by people who don’t themselves too seriously.

Because of those two assumptions, when Zep Commercial Cleaners (who make ALL sorts of great cleaning products from fence cleaner to toilet bowl cleaner to garbage odor eliminator) asked me to advertise their search for America’s Biggest Hot Mess contest . . . I decided it was a perfect fit.

I’ve been there. I’ve been at that point where I felt completely and totally overwhelmed and was sure the only way to ever dig myself out of the mess was to have someone come in and clean it up for me.

And that’s exactly what Zep Commercial will do for three winners of their contest! The three submissions with the most votes will be declared winners and will receive a complete house cleaning from Zep Commercial and $5,000 to help keep their home clean for one year. If the winners were nominated by someone else, the nominator will also receive $5,000!

I still have my days (weeks) when I could probably take a contender of a picture, but I was more than a little giddy when this was my husband’s reaction:

Photo - Texts with Hubby where he says things like whew at ASlobComesClean.com

Like, it’s not an automatic assumption (anymore) that I could win this thing in a landslide!!! Wahoo!!

But oh my word, I can’t express how much I would love for one of YOU to win!!
