I say a "bit" of cleaning, because it wasn't actually all that much -- just three loads of laundry. But an assortment of clothes were removed from the floor, placed into laundry baskets, and washed. Three loads of laundry later, the situation is under much better control. We still need to wash all of my con-going shirts before Confusion, but that's easy enough to get done later this week.
So we can declare victory -- at least conditionally.
