Not many care to have to scrub and scour by the hour! The remedy to that is to keep on top of chores so it doesn’t take long. If you let the counters in the kitchen pile high before you get to un-cluttering for Thanksgiving, you’re going to be working much longer than if you clear it off at the end of each day.
Here are a few tasks that I do every day after I finish cooking:
Wipe down all the counters with warm, soapy water
Wipe out the microwave
Use window cleaner on the microwave, stove top, oven door, refrigerator, trash can and dishwasher
Wipe out the sinks
Empty the dishwasher and dish drainer
Sweep the rugs
These tasks are complete in about 15 minutes, and the kitchen is clean when we get up in the morning and start the process of cooking and cleaning all over again!
What about your kitchen is most bothersome and hard to keep clean?
A sweet reader recently asked me if I had a daily cleaning routine. My immediate thought was, “No, I don’t. I just clean when I see a need.” THEN I began to go through what I do each morning, and I realized that I certainly DO have a routine! It’s so ingrained in my morning, that it’s just natural and doesn’t even feel like I’m working on a list of household chores!
I’ve made a short video to take you through what I do in the first hours I’m awake – just as I go through the regular parts of each day. I work as I go along, and by mid-morning, many tasks have been completed! Come along and see…
Just as I ended my video by saying, let me repeat – the comment from a reader inspired this video. If you have a question or comment, let me know and perhaps it can be answered in a future post! I ‘d love your input!
Fall brings some favorite things we don’t have the rest of the year. I thought I’d share some of the things I’m especially loving this fall (though they’re not all seasonally related). Look for the ARROW in the picture to see my favorite thing!
What are you enjoying this fall? A new product? A place you’ve visited? A person who’s been a blessing? I’d love to hear about it in the comments!
Have a refreshing weekend as you attend a church that preaches the Word of God in Truth! Our church will be celebrating its 61st anniversary this Sunday, so it will be a special day, and I’m looking forward to it!
Everyone has their little ways of doing things in the kitchen. I have a few odd things – either things in my kitchen drawers, or in the placement of my things. Welcome into my home – come see my kitchen secrets.
What strange item do you keep in the kitchen and why?
