Thank you to Double Duty Divas and Dawn Dish Detergent for sponsoring this post. All opinions are my own.
I hate cleaning the kitchen. There, I said it. Cleaning the kitchen is similar to doing laundry, in my opinion, because in all reality your job is never really done. Just like you'll have more clothes to wash tomorrow, you'll have another mess to clean up after the next meal you cook. It's just one of those never-ending things, you know? One thing I've learned though since becoming a mom and a wife and having two more people other than myself to clean-up after is that it's so much easier if you keep on top of it and clean a little bit everyday.
It may seem like a bit of a drag, but that's honestly the best advice I have for you and the one thing that's worked best for me. Just keeping things a little bit clean makes those "deep clean" days a little less deep and time consuming. Easier said than done? I bet you'd surprise yourself!
Here's how I keep a cleaner kitchen in 3 easy steps:
My kitchen counter tops see the most dirt, grease and grime and therefore I try and spend a little bit of extra time everyday giving them a little bit of TLC to keep them shiny and germ free. (Especially now that it's cold and flu season.) All it takes is three quick and easy steps and my counter tops sparkling in no time!
001. Grab a cute sponge and squeeze on some Dawn Dish Soap. Run the sponge underwater until you've created some cleansing suds.
002. Wipe down your countertops with the sponge.
003. Dry off with a towel.
And voila! Your counters are clean and sparkling and ready for whatever messes will come their way when your husband cooks next. Kidding... sort of! But seriously, is it just me or do guys make more of a mess in the kitchen?
