Are you one of those weird people that feels like they need to have their house clean before the new year starts? Or, maybe you love to clean up your house throughout the month of January, just so it feels like you’re starting off the year right? Yeah, that’s me too. Every year, I make sure the house is totally clean before the clock strikes 12. If I can get it done, I feel so accomplished. But, this year, I wised up and started early. I wanted to make this more of a yearly habit, instead of something I race to do one day a year.
A new year means new habits to be made, and conquered. Keeping cleaning simple is a resolution you, and I, will want to keep. Clorox Regular Bleach can be used to clean, sanitize and disinfect throughout the bathroom and kitchen, to simplify and lighten your cleaning load.
Here’s the deal: this Keep It Simple 21 day challenge gives you the kitchen and bathroom items that should be cleaned daily, weekly and monthly. All you have to do is follow along, and have your Clorox Bleach handy. That’s exactly what I did. For the 21 days before New Year’s Eve, I followed the guideline provided by Clorox, and cleaned the way they told me to. Easy, right?
When I cleaned my cutting boards, I added 1/2 cup of Clorox bleach to 1 gallon of water in our kitchen sink. I wet the boards with the solution, and allowed it to stay on the boards for 5 minutes. Then, I rinsed and dried my boards. Boom. They were cleaned, sanitized and ready for the next day’s use.
For my counters, I used the same 1/2 cup Clorox Regular Bleach to 1 gallon water solution, and wiped them down. I let the solution stay on the counters for 5 minutes, then rinsed with clean water and let them air dry.
Did you know you could clean your stainless steel with a Clorox Regular Bleach solution? Once a month, mix 1/2 cup of Clorox Regular-Bleach with 1 gallon of water. Wipe the surface of your stainless steel items. Wait 5 minutes for disinfecting. Rinse with warm water, and let it air dry. Say what?! This task was one of my favorites, since we are new owners of stainless steel items.
