Is It Any Good?

Clean This House! may very well inspire viewers to roll up their sleeves and start sorting through the piles of stuff they've been avoiding. While the 30-minute episodes offer only a simplified look at the time-consuming process -- and some fairly "duh" organizational tips ("Put things you don't use every day in clear, plastic containers," for instance) -- tuning in will encourage you to reassess what you need and where to put it. Just be prepared for plenty of blatant plugs for Clorox, the show's cleaning brand of choice. In addition to lots of shots of the products' packaging, Pesce uses her one-on-one time with the camera for additional advertising ("What I love about this is not only does it clean really well, but it also disinfects"). Kids won't be bothered by it (thank goodness the show isn't sponsored by Mattel...), but the brand reminders quickly become tiresome for adults.

Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
