20 Adar, 5775
One of my favorites months is fading fast, and so is the gunk in the kitchen. Meanwhile, I want to maximize emotional and mental health for you and me as Passover season approaches.
A reader wrote to me about yesterday's cleaning tips, "Shalom, Yocheved,
I hope you're ready for Part 2 of the Pesakh Prep, everybody. We're gonna hit the floors after a little FYI review:
I use 2 cloths, 1 draped on either side of the blade, then gripped by the clamp.
I douse the cloths with soapy water mixed in a bottle I keep for that purpose. Then I wash the floors, sections at a time. No puddles, no endangered furniture (cultural comment for you outtatowners: Sponja is traditionally done by tossing buckets of soapy water across the floors to be cleaned. That method tends to damage furniture sitting directly on floors, not elevated upon legs, And wow can it leave puddles a person can slip on!).
Kids or grandkids around? Let them skate on clean smartut cloths to finish the job. It's a fun learning experience that teaches safety, too.
Wait'll I teach you how to make a non-toxic volcano in the kitchen sink, to clear the drain!
