My absolute favorite dish soap is Dawn Liquid Soap. They have the most amazing scents and they clean like no other. When I have a greasy pan, I know Dawn will do the trick. But did you know Dawn makes a new type of soap that will give you the same results on a dirty, baked on pan, that usually takes an all night soaking, in just five minutes!
Dawn sent me a bottle of their new Dawn Power Clean soap through Socialmoms.com and a 5 minute timer. I was really excited to try this because I really like to go to bed with a clean kitchen, so leaving dirty dishes soaking on the counter is a little frustrating to me. The f=irst chance I had to use this new soap was on a large pan of baked ziti. My mom had a baby shower for my sister and made tons of baked ziti.
When she got home they were empty, dirty pans. So she filled up the pan with water and the new Dawn Power Clean and set the timer for 5 minutes. When the timer went off, she easily wiped clean the baked on cheese. This awesome soap will now allow me to go to bed with a clean kitchen!
Dawn will definitely help me to save some time and be more efficient in the kitchen. I don’t know about your house but we run the dishwasher twice a day and wash the larger pots, pans, and dishes. I have to keep my small kitchen clean and organized in order to be ready for the next meal. Here’s some of the things we do to help keep my kitchen clean and running efficiently. Even thought I am a stay at home mom – my days are pretty crazy!
In a perfect world we would wake up to a clean kitchen. There are usually a few stray dishes that don’t make it into the dishwasher. We try to unload the dishwasher when we wake up and put the dry dishes from the dish drainer in their place. We can then start filling the dishwasher instead of the sink.
I usually make a pretty big mess at dinner time. When I am done cooking, I will add the new Dawn Power Clean to the pan with some water, so that when we are done eating, it is easier to clean up.
Try to keep the clutter off your counter. The only thing we have on our counter all the time is our Keurig machine. It’s big – but my husband uses it a few times a day and it would be a pain to drag it out. We use our toaster a lot but mostly in the morning. So I keep this appliance in the cabinet.
I love to use my slow cooker to make dinner. I can throw everything in while my daughter is napping and dinner is done! Most of the mess is already clean before we eat dinner! I try to have a nice stock-pile of basic foods. I hate last minute trips to the grocery store.
How do you keep your kitchen running efficiently? Do you have any time saving tips? I would love to hear them.
