Come meet Jolie Kerr, whose Ask a Clean Person column has covered dilemmas we’ve never even considered, from how to get sweat off a car seat to cleaning humidifiers. Plus, how can you not love on principle a book titled My Boyfriend Barfed in My Handbag … and Other Things You Can’t Ask Martha? Tonight’s book release has Ms. Kerr in conversation about all things spotless with Bobby Finger of The Hairpin. Bonus: a cleaning giveaway basket and free wine!
