Whether you are in the midst of winter (aka..Eastern North America)...or you are starting to feel the warmth of the season, you are probably starting to feel that annual zing of spring fever which makes you want to get rid of the old and also wipe away the cobwebs of winter and create a home that sparkle and inspires. If this is something that resonates with you (like it does me), then you are also probably someone who likes a plan of attach for doing this. From the inspiring website of One Good Thing by Jillee....comes this 12 step (Hello...my name is ___ and I am a cleaning-a-holic) procedure for cleaning your kitchen that will make you actually excited for this yearly feng shui event!
The key to this process is organization and not being afraid to get your hands dirty. If you can begin with a clear space (and that means really taking EVERYTHING off of the main counter so you have space to work)...then you will find this process not as daunting as a task as it seems to begin with. There is something about the kitchen that feels slightly scary and slightly off putting...like it can be so overwhelming that you do not even know where to start. This list is the perfect 12-step list for you because it breaks this process down into manageable steps that truly will bring a sense of peace to your heart when you see just how gratifying and simple it can be. A Few Extra Tips from the website: Make cleaning up the kitchen a family affair. Divide the steps between your family members, and you really can have the kitchen done in a short time. Train your family members to clear and rinse their own plates after each meal. This simple act takes little time for each person, but saves so much time for the dish person later. Run a sink of hot soapy water before food preparation begins. As mixing bowls, cutting boards, knives, etc, become dirty, quickly wash them up to prevent food from drying and sticking. It will take the stress out of cooking and you won't be left with a pile of dirty dishes when you're done!
