R and I have a joke between us. Whenever we have to pull out the fridge or washing machine or similar and see the accumulated dirt and dust, with a particular emphasis on the first word, one of us will spit out 'dirty housewife' at the the other. The phrase was uttered the other day, so I thought I better do something about the skanky sealant. Not a bad job I did either. My bathroom was not quite as bad, but I did that one too anyway.
