Don Aslett’s time has arrived.
Aslett opened the Museum of Clean in Pocatello, Idaho, in 2011 as a way to share not only his collection of cleaning supplies, including 250 pre-electric vacuums, but also his philosophy on life.
For Aslett, who spent his career in the cleaning business, the concept of clean is about more than just dirt and clutter; it’s a way of life and a state of mind. As the museum’s Facebook page puts it:
“Clean will solve most of our personal problems, hence most of the world’s problems. Clean creates harmony, peace, safety, and security. Clean speaks with a clear voice that all is well and in control.”
Aslett’s museum and the power of clean is just what the world needs as we struggle with the Coronavirus Pandemic. According to the Museum of Clean’s website, the concept of clean should dominate every aspect of human life, from our surroundings and environment to our minds and bodies.
Perfect timing. Except for one thing: the museum is now temporarily closed because of the virus. Soap suds! A video tour of the museum will have to do until its doors are opened once more.
