It’s Wednesday night and the family has left me alone, a mixed blessing. You see I have a decision to make, I can either spend this time whipping up dinner for myself or getting caught up on some me time. But to spend some time on myself I’m going to have to play Leftover Roulette. I’m sure you’ve played it as well.
Where you grab something from the back of the refrigerator and lift the lid. Never knowing if you’ll be greeted by a scrumptious morsel or that smell that instantly causes you to gag. We’ve all been there, the spaghetti from two weeks ago that exploded all over the shelf. The canned peaches, or at least they were peaches that looks more like one of your kid’s science experiments.
Clorox has defined Leftover Roulette (left-oh-ver roo-let) as Deciding what’s in the food container in the back of the fridge, when it’s from and if it’s still good. It’s just one of the hilarious terms in their Ick-tionary which is full of many more ick words for every day life.
I know you have the same decisions to make and sometimes Leftover Roulette works and sometimes it doesn’t. Clorox has finally defined the Ick’s that we encounter everyday but I’m sure there are a few more out there to be discovered.

I think my entire house would qualify as “ick.” My husband of 55+ years has been very helpful since our retirement 14+ years ago. He was in a horrible accident on March 16 so everything has gone to pot. He is recovering well and I am trying to catch up. Couldn’t do it without Clorox.
The crumbs in my computer keyboard would be one for me, both at work and at home I’m guilty! The other one is the door seals on the fridge. I have no idea how they get so dirty and icky but they do! Yuck!
