Household Tips

Clean First for the Best Finish

I’ll admit to be a bit of a neat freak. I like things clean and organized. I find it hard to relax when I’m surrounded by chaos and clutter. For instance, I will never cook or bake in a messy kitchen. I’ll always take a few extra minutes to clean it up and then begin my task. I know some might say it’s going to get messy anyways. Yes, it will, but at least it won’t be starting that way. It’s MUCH easier to clean afterwards when you start off tidy and neat.

Last week, I discovered I was breaking my own rule with my messy fridge. Nothing was where it was supposed to be. Produce was scattered all over the fridge and I had duplicates of many condiments. I realized I needed to practice what I preach and clean it up. With all the recipes I’ve been making lately for summer picnics and barbecues, I wanted to be able to find ingredients fast and actually have room for groceries when I get home from shopping. There’s nothing more annoying than opening the fridge and having food fly out at you!

I worked my way cleaning the fridge shelf by shelf. There were a few sticky spills that needed to be taken care of. I also noticed a few expired condiments.

I finished the job in about 45 minutes and it looked a million times better. Everything was back in its proper place and all the surfaces were clean and fresh. It makes such a big difference when you are preparing meals to have a clean and organized fridge. Now I need to make sure we maintain it – at least for a little while!

Cleaning first for the best finish relates to a variety of projects and activities. One important item that comes to mind is first aid. We’ve had our share of cuts, bug bites, bumps and bruises this summer and I always stress to my family how it important it is to clean the wound so it heals properly.

Formulated with a pH balanced, hypochlorous solution, it prepares the wound bed, an essential part of the wound treatment process.
