Last Day of Detail Cleaning the Kitchen – Getting Organized

Getting Organized:
In your home and homeschool


Happy Friday! This is the last day for detail cleaning in the kitchen. I hope the heart of your home is looking great! Today we are going to detail clean the microwave, stove top, and vent over the stove. I use warm water with lemon in it and a purple cloth. This cuts right through the grease.  I can do all three of these in less than 15 minutes. If it takes you a little longer, break it up into small steps. If you do this monthly, it will get faster. Plan something fun this weekend! It is our 27th wedding anniversary, so we have a date night planned.

Have a great week-end!
If you have any questions or tips, please email me. I enjoy hearing from my readers.

  1. Dear Tami,
    First of all THANK YOU! Your emails are helping me tremendously!
    In today’s email you listed the places in the bedroom where “stuff” tends to pile up, including the treadmill. My kids shocked response: “Is she peeking in our windows?!” LOL!
    Keep up your great work and be blessed!

    • You are quite welcome! I know pretty well those areas in the home that pile up because it has happened to me, too. I am glad you are sharing my posts with your children.

      Have a wonderful day!
