Lesson #1 – Shine Your Kitchen Sink

Getting Organized:
In your Home and Homeschool 
 

Dear Friends,
Today’s mission takes you back to the beginning of the Baby Steps with the FlyLady. You are going to Shine Your Kitchen Sink.
If you want the step-by-step directions from the FlyLady, you can read it here. This is a good thing to do at least once a month with the details listed in the article.
Each night, I wipe my sink out with my dirty dish towel from the day, and then I lay out a fresh towel for the next morning. Since I am cleaning up the water spots daily, I don’t need to do a deep clean often.
The times when I have needed to do a deep cleaning of the sink have centered around renovations in the kitchen. So this is your encouragement to wipe your sink dry each night.
Some of you have different surfacing on your kitchen sink. I have a metal sink, but I have used and cleaned a porcelain sink. They are a bit different in their care. But I can say that I have used baking soda to clean both types of surfaces successfully.
Another thing I do for my kitchen sink and drain lines is to sprinkle baking soda in the drain once a month, and I follow that will white vinegar. This gives your lives a little cleaning action as the two things combine and make a chemical reaction. Kids love this!
This mission should not take more than 15 minutes unless you have dirty dishes to deal with first. So dive in and shine your sink! Each night check the sink before you go to bed and wipe it down. It will make you smile in the morning when you wake up to a clean and shiny sink.
Your Zone Mission today is to shine your kitchen sink.
Your Home Blessing for today is to dust and vacuum.
My menu plan for Tuesday is sloppy joes and a salad.
Have a great day!
