For a clean house just add Ouzo

This last weekend we had house guests from Bremen staying with us. It was a jolly nice time and we had a lot of fun. On the Saturday evening we went out to eat at our local restaurant. The food was good as always, and we enjoyed a couple of beers and schnapps. Watered and fed we returned home to chat, sup a couple more beers, and finish off the ouzo that we acquired in Crete last summer.

Apparently it was the ouzo that did it.

Mrs H was woken up at 5am by some strange noises. Mrs Bremen was just about to start hoovering the house. Prior to this she had already done 2 loads of washing (our clothes!). This behaviour can not be normal, and later when I woke and Mrs H explained to me what had happened, I found it both bizarre and amusing. I also realised we could ditch our normal cleaning lady and invite our Bremen visitors more often! – Ouzo doesn’t cost that much!

And it'S great for removing stains as well, just pour it on, allow to soak for five minutes and then lick it off (wouldn't want it to go to waste)...

Do the Bremen family do DIY too !

I am willing to give them a 2 bottles of Ouzo, if they will come and re-tile and decorate my bathroom.

While my mother was visiting we found Pinot Grigio to work quite well, especially with repeated applications.

I'd be happy to wash your clothes for a free Bed and Breakfast visit LOL (of course, i'd probably just take them and pay someone else to actually do the real washing)

Just a word of warning. With constant use, the really good stuff makes you go blind like absinthe. Not that you care.
