clean not cleanse :)

"clean" not "cleanse" is the correct word. The dishes are clean. I will cleanse the dirty sink. I am not the grammar police, just thought you would like to know :-)

Nick, you are very funny. Thanks for making me laugh. My previous phone went white screen, lost years of contacts however, since I've been with my service carrier for years, my iPhone didn't cost me a thing. :-)

Mad is an emotion, i.e, I am mad at you. Rhymes with glad. Maid is someone who cleans, i.e, The maid came today or I am my own maid. Rhymes with paid. Made can be used in the sentences, i.e, I made a cake, I made my bed or I made an "A" on my English test. Also rhymes with paid. :-)

Mad uses the same sounds as in bad, sad and had
Maid and made are pronounced the same way as fade and trade.
Maid is a person who cleans a house, while made is in manufactured or created, these words must be used in context where they are understood such as,, the maid cleaned the house, or she made a cake.
