Tips and a Printable Checklist for Clean Kitchen

One of my goals for this year has been to change how I clean house.  There have been times in the past, where I’ve walked around my house and literally felt sick, looking around at the mess and all the work that had to be done.  Sometimes things were in a mess, because I’d been too busy with blog and shop work to clean; other times things were in a mess, because I’d been taking on extra big projects around the house (things like decluttering, garage sales, and DIY projects), and still other times things would be in a mess from a lack of cleaning due to migraine or other illnesses.

But as I said, one of my goals for this year has been to change I clean house, and after doing a little research on the topic and putting some new habits in to place, I think I’ve finally found a good formula that works for me.  Today I’m going to discuss one of the most difficult rooms to keep clean: the kitchen.  I’m going to give you some of my tips and a checklist to keep your kitchen clean.  And we’re going to talk about a few products from Scotch-Brite® that will help you maintain a clean kitchen.

Biz Secret Weapon

I’ve been using Biz now for two months, and I have to say, it is definitely a clothes saver! Previously I posted about BIZ, explaining how it works and why it’s effective.  And today I’ve got a couple of examples of the product in action!

But first, let’s quickly review how you use Biz.  Biz is a stain fighter that works to boost the power of your detergent by 80%.  There are two methods for using the product.  You can use it as a pre-treater: Just apply it to the stain, rub it gently, and then wait 5-10 minutes before washing.  And the second method is to use it as laundry additive: Just pour a cap in with your laundry.
