is this mentally unstable or totally normal?

My husband caught me wiping out our laundry basket (tall, plastic, from Target, totally average) with a few Lysol wet wipes. He said cleaning a laundry basket was the most freakishly OCD thing he'd ever seen. It makes sense to me, I wipe it out 2-3 times a month or whenever I remember.

Don't other moms, too?

  • I have to often, my boys tend to get filthy and dirt collects at the bottom of the baskets.

  • I wipe things off like that too. Mine is wiping of door handles, phones, faucet handles and the toilet handle. Anywhere where the germs are constant.

  • My mom wipes hers down. It makes sense. DIRTY laundry was in there. It's not like you do it every time.
    We have a laundry chute the does right down to the laundry room.

  • I do it.

    Answer by Mom2Just1 at 9:22 PM on Nov. 21, 2010

  • I wipe mine out because I put dirty clothes in it. I do not do it often enough. I think one wetwipe would have been enough. More than one is over the top unless it was filthy with baby pee or something.
