Tips for House Cleaning – I’m sharing affresh® in my life as part of a sponsored series for Socialstars™ #affresh
Recently my older daughter has been asking for a cell phone. A lot of children in her class have one and she participates in quite a few after-school sports and clubs, so my husband and I are considering letting her have one in case she needs to get in touch with us. We’re not quite ready to buy the phone yet, but have decided to let her start “earning” her phone.
Since we know the importance of teaching work ethic to our children, we let her choose which room in the house she wanted to be “in charge of” to keep clean. It was no surprise to me that she chose the kitchen – probably thinking it was the easiest to keep clean.
What my daughter failed to realize is that the kitchen is the one room in the house that needs almost constant cleaning. It is the one room we gather in the most, and it has the most traffic throughout the day. Where we cook our family dinners and spend time together baking on the weekends.
Since I work from home I have always stayed on top of it, so they have always just seen it as clean. It was not long before my sweet girl realized what she had gotten herself into. Cleaning the kitchen isn’t just making sure food is put back into the pantry and sweeping the floor. There are some areas that have to actually be scrubbed a bit – like those splashed on, cooked on messes on the cooktop.
Luckily though, I have a few secret weapons for keeping the kitchen clean and shiny. affresh® cleaners are designed to help you keep the messiest rooms in your house – the kitchen, bathroom, and laundry room – the cleanest they can be. Each product is specially formulated to clean the inside – and the outside – of all of your appliances. affresh® cleaners are even recommended by the top selling appliance brands.
And I actually know that they are the best for cleaning because I heard it from the experts. When I toured the Whirlpool Headquarters, I learned some really cool things about how appliances are made and tested, and how to take the very best care possible of the appliances we have at home.
From the Experts – Tip for House Cleaning
We were able to see the Whirlpool labs firsthand to learn about how they test their products in order to improve them. By running tests on the various models of appliances constantly for 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 365 days of the year, the engineers are able to see what works well and what could be improved upon.
The engineers runs the machines hard, day in and day out, actually trying to cause failure. Because if they can cause a failure in the labs, they can improve the machine and avoid failures in our homes. Everything from pushing buttons and opening doors thousands of times to checking finish durability and testing how easy it is to remove fingerprint smudges is tested.
So when the engineers recommended affresh® to clean our appliances, I absolutely listened. The affresh® products have been tested – and proven – to work. The were created to clean specific surfaces and to work better on those appliances than any other product.
So when my daughter is cleaning our cooktop, she uses the new affresh® Cooktop Cleaning Wipes. The wipes are easy to use and made to keep our cooktop shiny and sparkling like new. Beacuse the affresh® Cooktop Cleaning Wipes are a dual sided wipe – one side has built in scrubbers designed to help clean cooked on foods and the smooth side finishes the job with a streak-free finish – they handle the entire cooktop cleaning job from start to finish. Plus, they come in a resealable package that keeps every wipe just as fresh as the one before and is easy to store right under the sink.
To be honest I thought after a week my daughter would throw in the towel – pun intended – to being the “keeper of the kitchen” but she has stayed with it and almost seems to enjoy the instant gratification of getting our kitchen clean and beautiful again after a long day of messes.
