I like to wake up to a clean kitchen. I know that seems silly, but it makes me happy and gives me energy for the day. Which is why I work at making sure the dishes are done and the sink is empty at the end of the day. I’m not always successful, but when I am, it makes for a great start to the day.
I found this homemade nightly sink scrub at the Clean Mama blog. It’s an incredibly simple recipe, but the results are amazing.
You put 2 cups of baking soda along with 10 drops each of lemon essential oil and clove essential oil. Such an amazing combination of scents. I use a fork to stir in the oils and then put the entire mix into a mason jar.
I used my Crop-a-dile to punch the holes in the metal disc of the mason jar to turn the jar into a shaker. Works beautifully.
I followed the directions and end up with an amazingly fresh clean sink. I love the lemon/clove combo, but I think I might try a peppermint/lime combo as well.
You really should give this a try.
I don’t think you’re silly mom. Anything that makes you happy makes me happy.
I also make sure my kitchen is clean at the end of the day. There’s no better start to a day than a clean kitchen! 🙂
