I think April Fools is a fun day. I used to LOVE it when I was a kit. I would sit for days before trying to think of pranks I could pull on my family and friends. Often times my older brother and I would team up and we did all the usual ones: switching shampoo and conditioner, switching sugar and salt, removing the stopper of a shaving cream can and tossing it into the shower while someone is in there, switching the sticker on the faucet so hot and cold are backwards etc.

It was harder of me to think of something that I could do via the blog-o-sphere. I didn't want to do a prank blog because well, I might get in trouble depending on how upset people got over it. :) So I decided, instead of pranking you, we will just see how smart or "foolish" you might be; about dry cleaning.

I have devised a simple multiple choice test. Take it to the best of your ability and then get back onto the blog tomorrow where I will have posted the answers and see how well you did. (HINT: all the answers to these dry cleaning questions can be found in all of these blog posts! So if you have done your reading you will be good to go!)
