No vacuuming for me!

I received an alert about the Georgia and Florida wildfires and how the smoke effects people. It’s been smoky here in Orlando for at least a week. It’s annoying.

But here’s the cool thing that the Health Information notice said:

Do not add to indoor pollution. When smoke levels are high, do not use anything that burns, such as candles, fireplaces, or gas stoves. Do not vacuum, because vacuuming stirs up particles already inside your home. Do not smoke, because smoking puts even more pollution into the air. (emphasis added)

Did you read that Babe? The internets say I shouldn’t vacuum. My hands are tied.

  • Fine with me. There’s no place to vacuum anyway because our stuff is all over the floor!

  • hhhmmmm…I was actually thinking about doing it in the next couple of days because it has been forever since we did it last and we have out-of-town company coming over sunday.

  • I hate those internets.

  • Pam

    Phew. I’m off the hook.

  • I was noticing how bad my living room carpet was looking last night as I was heading out the door to a class. I mentioned it to my 12 year old daughter. Apparently the smoke has drifted all the way up to Wisconsin too, because the vacumming did not get done. yet!
