I admit I struggle with keeping my house clean in the spring and summer because all I want to do is go outside. Outside projects, gardening, playing with my kids, hiking, etc. So if I am going to get deep cleaning done, I’m better off doing it when the weather is less than ideal. I usually do my “spring cleaning” in January or February when I am bored to tears from being cooped up.
My favorite tool to help with the process is my SteamMachine. My HomeRight post this month is all about decluttering and cleaning your home. This winter I started with my kitchen. In fact, I posted a video of my son using it to clean the oven on instagram stories and so many of you were impressed. I don’t think I have ever gotten that many messages before! Another place in the kitchen I tackled was the inside of my lazy susans. They have a ribbed texture on the plastic trays and before I had the SteamMachine I could never get it 100% clean. I use the the scrub brush tip and it works like a charm!
When I was done, I was really picky about what went back in. I made sure all the tupperware had matches and any left over lids (why is it always the lids?) got chucked. I found I had too many medium sized bowls. Many of them I hardly use at all. They went to the basement to the yard sale pile. I thinned the herd so to speak with all the cabinets.
Let’s chat about silverware trays. Am I the only one who has their tray fill with mystery crumbs? Are my kids secretly eating crackers over the open drawer? Where are these crumbs coming from? Even after dumping the crumbs out, my organizers look gross. I scrubbed it with the same tip and it looked like new :)
My cabinets were here when we moved in so I don’t know how old they are. After being wiped out many times over the years, the inside of the cabinets and drawers are all chippy and ugly. I decided to wipe them out with a rag and then add some cute contact paper.
How perfect is this contact paper? I found it on Amazon (affiliate link) and I absolutely love it.
I decided to have our everyday silverware in the drawer and our other silverware in a box in the pantry. That way our drawer isn’t as crammed full and messy looking.
HomeRight is giving away one SteamMachine and one of their accessory bags! I was always losing the accessories that don’t fit in the compartment on the SteamMachine. I didn’t really have a good place to store them. Now I hang the bag in my laundry room and I always know where they are.
