Kitchen Tip: Multi-Tasking Kitchen Cleaners

I like to keep my kitchen clutter-free. After you account for all the food photography props that have taken over my kitchen, I don’t have a whole lot of storage space left. And the pantry is ridiculously small. So, one thing I do to keep the flow going in there is to take advantage of items that are able to multi-task. I’ve already mentioned the multi-tasking capabilities of the Microplane, but this mentality doesn’t have to stop with kitchen gadgets.

I like to keep the bare minimum cleaning supplies in my under the sink area and I do that by choosing my products carefully. I prefer products that can be used for multiple tasks and Pledge helps me out with that! The Yellow Can Lemon Pledge work in so many different ways:

  • Wood
  • Laminate
  • Stainless Steel
  • Leather
  • Marble and Granite

Pledge is great for cleaning my kitchen table, leather chairs just off of the kitchen, kitchen cabinets, and my stainless steel refrigerator. Bye, bye fingerprints! Plus, I think that fresh lemon smell is pretty great too!

Besides the Yellow Can Lemon Pledge, I also love their Multi-Surface Cleaner because you can use that on glass, appliances, plastics, and more. And they’re also available as Multi-Surface Cleaning Wipes. Fewer products under my kitchen sink = less clutter = a more efficient kitchen and a happier me! Pledge wants to help with a happier YOU, too…

Stainless steel appliances! And I would really need that Pledge control the fingerprints my children would be sure to leave!

I found Deanna E from Agua Dulce, CA's entry compelling. Her kitchen looks like it would be an awful dreary place to make meals especially when duct tape is involved! ;)

I would probably go for new appliances and pans! Could really use both! My husband might insist on a new tile floor though!

I love marble flooring in the kitchen and countertop should be long and built by marble because marble showed a beautiful look.
