Baby Steps in Cleaning with Mr. Clean

This New Year cleaning resolution tips post is brought to you by Mr. Clean as part of a Type-A Parent Community Sponsored Post.

My New Year cleaning resolution begins with one task – a spotless kitchen sink.  Some of you may already be smiling and nodding in agreement.  Others may be slightly confused, as I was, until about a month or so ago.  That’s when I was introduced to the FlyLady.

The FlyLady’s self-help topics focus on making a happy and clean-enough home by getting the upper hand on clutter by creating routines and letting go of perfectionism. The first step? Shining your sink. Why? For those that struggle with clutter and routine, this first step helps to give a sense of accomplishment. Everything else may be disorganized and waiting to be tackled, but at least you have a bright, shiny, clean sink waiting for you.

Mr. Clean

I will be honest with you, Divas, this may have been one of the first times that everything in the sink and counters got washed when I was on kitchen duty. I am a perpetual dish-soaker.  So, after everything was washed, dried and put in it’s proper place, I commenced to cleaning. Enter, Mr. Clean Liquid Muscle.

Mr. Clean Liquid Muscle: Cleaning My Kitchen Sink

Mr. Clean Liquid Muscle is a liquid concentrate that can be used diluted in water or solo as I did with my sponge.  According to the packaging, it is great on floors (even hardwood), sinks, stove-tops, and counter-tops.

What baby steps with cleaning and organization are you including with your New Year resolutions or goals?

This is a compensated post brought to you by Mr. Clean. Mr. Clean is kicking off the New Year with the launch of a new product called Mr. Clean Liquid Muscle, a new multi-purpose, multi-surface concentrated cleaning gel that delivers superior cleaning performance on and off the floor.

I love Mr. Clean as well, and like others have mentioned, the kitchen sink is always the first thing I tackle as well-- I do admit to being a soaker, too :)

I love the Flylady. Her cleaning system makes it less overwhelming to develop a sustainable cleaning routine. I use Mr. Clean in my kitchen too! Not only does it work well, it smells great.

I had a good chuckle when I read your post because I always start with the kitchen sink before moving to other cleaning chores... I'm not sure why but maybe seeing your sparkly sink might be the trigger for me to keep going. Love the Mr Clean line of products too. :-) Elizabeth

I am a fanatic about a clean sink. I can totally understand wanting it cleaned. Looks like that stuff did a great job. I have a double sink too and sometimes I think it can be worse cause the kids fill em both lol
