On Parenthood, Monica Potter plays a doting mother of two. In real life, she's the mother of invention. The 41-year-old actress talked to Us Weekly on March 7 at PaleyFest's Parenthood panel in Beverly Hills about her obsession with creating new household cleaning products.

"I'm working in my little lab and doing inventions and things. I make cleaning products," Potter revealed to Us Weekly. "I have a home line that I'm working on. I just love cleaning and keeping the house."

The actress' most recent invention? Lice spray — not surprising considering she has three kids. "I sent in the patents today for a lice spray. I know, I'm weird."

"It's really fun," Potter said of her surprising side work. "It's a lot of work. I'm not sleeping a lot, but it's the most gratifying thing next to [acting]."
