Heat activated air freshener. Sounds exactly right for a kitchen.

Fingerprints AREN'T part of kitchen decor? And I'll admit that there is a fine, protective coating of dust on the top of my very tall refrigerator. Since I'm not expecting Kyrie Irving for dinner, I'll ignore the dust.

I keep the sink and the main work area of my counter immaculate, scrubbing with Soft Scrub Gel with Bleach if there is any chance of food actually migrating from the cutting board to the counter, and ALWAYS after working with meats because the juices have a way of getting around.

Also like to clean as I go. If we're having a dinner with any amount of simmer time, by the time the food is ready to eat all I need to clean up after dinner is the one pot and our plates.

That says it all.

As Andy stated. "It's a workplace". It needs to be clean but if anything good comes out of it you need to accept a little mess due to use.

I do a lot of kitchen remodels and have installed many "Show" kitchens. If water is boiled in them it's lucky. The only way to keep a kitchen perfect is not to use it. And that's a shame.

Use your resources and don't sweat the small stuff.


Oh, And anyone who wants my kitchen cleaner and takes the time to do so. Take a look at the Bathroom while you're at it and I'm sure you'll find something you feel the need to clean.

Go ahead. I won't stop you.
