The Clorox Ick Awards… For Those Messy Life Moments

by | Mar 28, 2014 | Parenting/Family, Sponsored | 1 comment

As parents… a.k.a. The Keepers Little Germ Carriers… messes and icky things are a integral part of our life.

From carrying baby wipes or hand sanitizer everywhere we go, to stretching the “5 second rule” into a “10 second rule”… our lives are consumed with germ containment.

We work hard!

But there is no applause for our job well done. Only messes.

The Clorox Ick Awards (feat: #ICKIES) are your “reality” awards show, honoring those situations and experiences that we can all relate to.

That’s right – finally an awards show we can relate to! Mark you calendar, because on Wednesday, April 9 from 6 – 10 p.m. ET. on Twitter your real-life, real-time submissions will inspire The Second City Communications’ improv sketches, which will be shared live!

This is a must-see, people.

Speaking of must-see… one time, Lucy was really, really quiet and she was really, really quiet because she found mommy’s stamp pad.

That was fun.

For her.

And really… after the initial shock wore off… I just had to laugh. And laugh. And laugh.

Clorox gets that, so they came up The Ick Awards as a way for us to commiserate bond… and laugh.

The Clorox Ick Awards are about making the messy stuff fun for us. The ones battling the messes every day. A hilarious host that is sure to impress will be hosting the Clorox Ick Awards on Twitter, and the host will kick things off with an opening sketch at 6 p.m. ET that is not to be missed!

How cool is that?

Clorox has it right… the only way to get through some of these messes is through humor.

Because when you find your 2 year old guzzling a jug-o-pancake syrup while standing in a puddle of said pancake syrup – some-mommy needs to know she is not alone.

Do you have a hilariously icky moment you want to nominate in advance? Share it with us using #ickies and “tune in” to see if it is featured in an improv sketch from The Second City Communications!

What are you doing April 9th?

Set your reminder alerts… Wednesday April 9th from 6-10 p.m. ET. Join the conversation, share your Ick Awards nominations, win prizes and watch The Second City Communications’ hilariously icky sketches on Twitter using #ickies. And don’t forget to visit and sign up for Clorox’s email newsletter to learn more about how Clorox can help you laugh through the mess.

These awards are not about a bunch of other people’s messes… they are about YOURS TOO!

Cool, right?

Will I see you over there on Twitter … laughing and sharing your #ickies moments??? I hope so!

*Thanks to Clorox for bringing laughter to messes and for sponsoring this post. All opinion and observances are my own.
