Nope! The worst in my recollection is a 48-ounce glass bottle of liquid bubble bath dropped on a concrete floor. The cleaner-upper, not me, got the brilliant idea to use the spray nozzle and garden hose to clean it up. Can you say.......bubbles? It took hours to clean up the mess.

I have found Krud Kutter to be great on oil and grease. I'd try spraying the floor with it then mopping it up. It even takes grease and oil out of clothes. Wonderful stuff.

Now you have me wondering what I would use. Would Goo Gone work?

Thanks Kathleen that was a belly buster...best one all week. I'm so glad I hadn't taken a sip of my tea. I really would have had a messed up keyboard.

Krud Cutter is wonderful stuff!!

The worse floor clean up I ever had was a huge bowl of still liquid Jello.

Oh, that would be bad - all sticky and starting to set. I have had the fun of cleaning up spilled gelatine, but not a huge amount.

I can laugh about it now, 30 years later, TL, and there's even more horror to the story. My little boy thought the big bowl of Jello in the fridge was set, and he yanked it off the shelf spilling half of it in the fridge, and the rest over the floor and under the refrigerator. All things considered, I'm glad I didn't put him up for adoption.

I totally agree with you on that one Katie and can do you one better. Having a glass bottle filled with bubble bath getting knocked a shelf above the toilet while you are taking the tank cover off because the stopper is stuck and having said bubble bath bottle smash right through the bottom of the tank sending water, bubbles, ceramic and glass in a tidal wave while I tried desperately to turn off the water supply. I spent the next hour or so cleaning up while DH ran out for a new toilet.

All bubble bath bottles are now plastic and reside on an inner corner of the tub.

What color? Did it stain like Kool-Aid? Sorry, it must have been h*ll to clean up before it solidified, or did it? Oops, I can't help it *giggling helplessly*
