If you watched the “Mad Men” season 5 opener, you were treated to a steamy look at the new Mrs. Don Draper (actress Jessica Paré) picking chips out of the carpet in her black lace undies. (Oh, mama!)

And even though her shimmy to a French ditty has gotten the lion’s share of post-show attention, we think her clean-tease was the hottest scene in the much-anticipated show.

We hope the Martha-esque moment gives “Mad Men’s” 3 million-plus viewers a new appetite for spring cleaning, although underwear is not the best attire for top-to-bottom scrubbing. We suggest the following:

  • Rubber gloves when using abrasives or harsh chemicals.
  • Scarf for keeping hair away from dirt and suds.
  • Jeans for raking yard debris.
  • Rubber-soled shoes when doing electric repairs.

Is it hot in here? Or is it just Paré?
