It's interesting the way that people use brand names to highlight examples - whether it's Xerox, Band-Aid, Windex or Google. It tends to be more common in the US than other countries, though the UK uses the term "to hoover" (meaning to vacuum, derived from the company Hoover) and "Google it" (in relation to web searches). If I was to pose the same question it would be "and how many bottles of window cleaner would you need?". There's nothing wrong with it, I just find it interesting from a cultural perspective.

it would drive me crazy to live in a house like that, i would have no time to do anything other than clean windows all day, and i would have to clean them over and over again.

So most of the rooms are under the ground with no windows? That must be depressing...
