A Fresh Approach to Spring Green Cleaning

The grass is growing, birds are chirping all are signs of another spring season which signals that special time of the year when we give our homes a thorough green cleaning! 

 Get my space right.  Begin with "surveying the land."

The Blessing of a Broken Dishwasher

--written by Brenda

I will be honest, one of the on-going challenges in my home has been keeping a clean kitchen.  It is not for lack of cleaning products as I am a firm believer in cleaning with all-natural, green cleaning products.  Something mysterious seems to occur between the late afternoon hours and the late night hours of the day.  The "Dirty Dish Bandits" show up and do their mischief. (I am sure these "Dirty Dish Bandits" are in cohorts with my teenagers!)

Then one day it happened, my dishwasher died. 

It was not a sudden death but a slow drawn-out death.  Even though I knew it would happen soon, I was not ready for that day.
With my dishwasher now beyond repair, the Dirty Dish Bandits wreaked even more havoc in my kitchen. Although my children (college-aged & teenagers) do chores around the house, and clean up the dishes after supper, my kitchen always seems to have some dirty dishes lying about (in those peak hours I already mentioned).  When the dishwasher broke, the problem became compounded.

I decided enough is enough and one weekday afternoon I set about removing every cup, glass, bowl, plate and all silverware from my kitchen cupboards.
