Cleaning Supplies Gone Bad

Sep 09, 2021

What are some cleaning supplies you should be replacing on a regular semi-annual basis? The MOST important thing to replace frequently is the tools you use to apply cleaner/or clean with. ie: sponges and microfiber rags. Sponges come in contact with millions of bacteria and germs, depending on where they are used. In a kitchen, sponges come in contact with e-coli, salmonella, and viruses due to a kitchen being such a high-touch area. The cost of a sponge runs around $1.00. At this price, you should be tossing your kitchen sponge once a week. You may have been told before that running your sponge through the dishwasher or nuking it in the microwave is a good alternative to replacing it, but those were different times. Today we are all about cleaning and disinfecting our spaces so the kitchen is priority number 1. So toss that sponge every 7 days! In […]

When Should I Toss Freezer Food?

Sep 09, 2021

If you’re anything like me you probably have no idea what is at the very bottom of your freezer right now. Sure you can plainly see those half-eaten bags of french fries and those popsicles that have been there since the Summer of 2018 but when was the last time you took everything out and tossed out what was bad? Did you just buy more chicken breast because you forgot you have a pack already frozen? By the time you clean your freezer out, you discover it covered in freezer burn? I’m 100 percent guilty of this. For me, I realized it was time to take everything out and start from scratch when I made some homemade sweet tea and filled my glass with ice. I took a big drink only to be surprised by the bitter taste of onion. This was the result of using the ice from the […]

How to Clean Stainless Steel Appliances

Sep 09, 2021

Livin’ the dream Ahhhhhh, the beauty of stainless steel appliances. So many of us were swept off our feet by your illustrious sheen. We ripped out old stoves & dishwashers and yanked out refrigerators. Those old appliances were replaced with top-of-the-line, brand spanking new shiny stainless steel. We treated you like a baby (heck many of us even spent night after night coming back into the kitchen just to look at you ) But our dreams of never-ending, not a smudge anywhere, I can see myself in the reflection love affair, would come to an abrupt end with the very first greasy handprint. Soon after you bought your shiny new appliances you then went out and bought any product that came with a promise of getting that glow back and erasing those tiny little fingerprints. But once again you would find yourself heartbroken as many of the products geared towards […]

How Often Should I Clean My Kitchen Floor?

Sep 08, 2021

Recently I wrote an article for Martha Stewart Living on this very subject. Here is the detailed method of how I like to clean and maintain my kitchen floor and my favorite tools to get the job done. The link to the article is at the bottom. Let’s Be Honest… The kitchen is the hub of the home, and everyone in your household is in the kitchen multiple times a day from sun up to sun down so it sees a TON of traffic. Adults coming home from work, kids coming in from sports, furry friends coming in from running outside. It all adds up and equals outside dirt and debris in your home. The key factors that would determine how often you should clean your kitchen floor either vacuuming or with soap and water, would depend on different factors. The location of your home. Do you live in a […]
