According to The Clorox’s Ick-tionary, an Ew-Phone (ewe-fohn) is the feel of your smart phone after your kid gets his mitts all over it. Oh, how I can relate to that!
My daughter is notorious for playing with my phone right after she was involved in an art project or had just enjoyed a delicious ice-cream sundae. It happens every single time. She touches my phone and so graciously covers it in slime and goo and ick!
I was thrilled to see the term for this. Ew-Phone. So perfect. Needless to say, I try to hide my phone from little messy fingers. Now if I can just remember where I hide it half the time, we will be okay!
Do your kids ever turn your iPhone into an Ew-Phone? If so, you are not alone!
The Clorox® Ick-tionary™ is a way to help parents “roll with it” by changing the way people talk about messes. It creates a new vocabulary for modern parents, letting them laugh about, commiserate and conquer life’s messy moments. The Clorox Ick-tionary experience is dynamic, with new engaging content to laugh about and share all year long.
Life’s messy moments are often the most memorable and funny (after the fact). Whether it’s an extremely public “up the back”, a mysterious “chocolate?” stain your boss notices on your suit or your “darling” little nephew making sand castles in the litter box, an icky mess can make for a hilarious story and people like to share these stories with their family and friends. In the moment, it’s hard to see the mess as part of something positive. What if we didn’t have to stress the mess? What if we could let loose, get messy and live to laugh about it afterward?
