My kitchen was in poor shape after six weeks of head colds and headaches and exhausting work days. What little free time I had, I used for mental recovery rather than more work. But eventually I got mostly healthy and got my mind back and then the kitchen was driving me nuts.
So I did 60 minutes work, 30 minute break, 60 minutes work, and it was done. I’m so much happier with the result. I can breathe again.
Even the stove drip pans got scrubbed. I gouged up my fingernails pretty badly with the stainless steel scratcher before I put on gloves… don’t do that. Start with gloves on. Also, test your scratcher in an inconspicuous location before using, because although they are awesome for removing carbonized oil from enameled steel, they’re pretty much sandpaper and will tear the heck out of anything else.
Astute readers will notice this is a different kitchen than before. Yes, I moved. No, I haven’t finished unpacking. More pics later on that, probably. That’s also why such a long gap in my posts. For what it’s worth, keeping up with my house cleaning UFYH style made moving a whole lot easier and kept my confidence up while facing the huge amount of work. Yay to the results of building long-term habits.
