I wound up cleaning it all myself yesterday. Literally on my hands and knees scrubbing every inch of the floor. Used an entire roll of paper towels soaking it up (because I did NOT want to use my kitchen towels given how utterly nasty it smelled.) I cleaned the floor four times – once with soap to get the stickiness up; the second with windex; the third and fourth with my mop. In some places, it’s still tacky. I swear, this is never ending.
Oh and speaking of never-ending, the wall inside the pantry is just disgusting. Forgive the bad cell phone pic but this is what it looks like now:
And if you think I scrubbed at the floor a lot, I’ve been at the wall probably 6 or 7 times. I’ve saturated it with cleaners trying to get the stains and such out. And it STILL looks that bad! I don’t know what to do any more. The lighter patch is where the paint came off from the acidity of the pineapple juice.
Holy crap, do NOT let a can of pineapple juice explode in your pantry. Honestly, it’s been a nightmare. I had to spray some air freshener in the pantry because I couldn’t get that metallic, rancid pineapple smell to completely go away – despite all the cleaning products and elbow grease I threw at it!

Hysterectomy FundOctober 2013 Update: Happy 2 Year Anniversary!! I'm amazed at how different life is two years later. Though the hardest thing I've ever been through in my life, I've grown so much as a result of having overcome such terrifying and daunting medical issues. In a weird way, I'm better for having experienced these hardships. I'm more sure of myself these days and more confident I can face life's challenges better.
I have tried to turn this medical challenge into an opportunity and using this as a means to push forward with my small jewelry business and as a way to support myself again.
Your continued support is appreciated right now and even links to my shop are appreciated. Thank you to everyone who's helped and spread the word. All of you helped make it possible for me to be here and healthy.
