What’s the Word for…

Sometimes you have a mess on your hands that defies description. Not anymore. Clorox teamed up with comedian Carol Leifer to create The Clorox Ick-tionary, a Wiki-style dictionary for everyday messes. Here are new words that define slovenliness.

Apocolipstick: The streak on your face when you’re bumped into while attempting to apply lipstick.

Szechuan doodles: The pattern that your lo mein noodles make when they fall on the floor.

Fridge-a-mortis: The liquid in the bottom of the vegetable drawer that hardens over time.

Board-’oeuvres: Crumbs on your keyboard.
