I use bar mop towels to wipe up messes and counters – my favorites are these white ones from Target. Add it up and it’s a huge cost savings if you switch from paper towels to these. Want to read more about this process? Go to this post.

All-Purpose Scrub - Clean Mama

 I keep a sink scrubbing brush under the sink. I use it nightly with  this homemade scrub and soap to wash and ‘shine’ my sink.

Organize Under the Kitchen Sink - Clean Mama

Having the area under my kitchen sink organized is essential for me to keep the kitchen clean and tidy. I try to keep it pretty and functional with a few tools like a lazy susan and a couple repurposed containers.

Keep Silverware in a Colander for Easy Rinsing and Washing - Clean Mama

Washing a lot of dishes or rinsing dishes for the dishwasher? Put your silverware in a colander for easy rinsing or washing. No silverware caught in the garbage disposal or down the drain and you won’t need to fish out a knife from the bottom of your sink.

Use Containers That You Love for Sponges + Soap - Clean Mama

Keeping sponges and scrubbers accessible, but also open to the air for easy drying and less microbial growth and cute is important to me. I use a cute little vintage container for my sponges and a Fiesta tray to hold soap and dish soap.

How about you? What would you add to this little  list?
