Has it ever occurred to you that the dirtiest place in your home might be in your kitchen?
Yes that’s right, the place where you make food, the one place in your home that really needs to be clean!
At my home in Kelowna I am really not too worried about the whole kitchen. I am very good at wiping down the kitchen every day and giving it a deep clean at least once a week. However, I know that my kitchen sink may not get washed out enough. From left over food, to raw meat, and even soapy water for washing hands, all the nasty things go down the drain. My kids milk bottles get put into the sink, the wash cloth we use after dinner, my pour over coffee maker gets left in the sink after our morning coffee, and so many other things. The real question is: Is the sink really clean?
To be honest, I’m not always sure it is; but I have learned over the past few years that you can add in good habits to keep your home clean on a regular basis. Keeping a perfectly clean home has never come to me naturally, as I am normally very laid back. However, it’s become more of a priority since having children and I always seem to find more things I can improve on. My home is still never perfectly clean but at least I am working on it!
My goal for the next week is this: every single evening I am going to wash the sink out with baking soda and a drop of dish soap- just a quick wash and rinse before bed. The baking soda really helps get into those tiny little cracks. Hopefully this new habit will help me start the day off without worrying about what was made for dinner last night or not washed down.
Give it a try. Building new habits can be hard but do it for a week and I think you’ll get the hang of it! A cleaner kitchen, will help with keeping a healthier home!
