The Simple Power of Soap


It’s been a whole month since I last blogged. Mainly because we’ve been so busy that this is what we look like when we come home each day. Jeff was so tired this day that he didn’t make it past the doorway. Me too, baby.

Over the past month I’ve actually had a rekindled love for the always-used, often-overlooked . . . dish soap. I’ve been cleaning everything with it. EVERYTHING. A couple drops of plain dish soap and warm water + an old wash cloth = a super effective cleaning agent. I’d almost recommend it over other cleaners. I prefer the original blue Dawn, with no scents, lotions, or other add-ins. It only takes 1 or 2 drops, as it’s super concentrated, and you don’t want it too soapy, especially when cleaning floors.


Areas to clean using warm water and dish soap:

  • Stove top and oven knobs
  • Cabinet doors
  • Baseboards
  • Outside windows (squeegee dry)
  • High chairs
  • Kitchen table
  • FLOORS (especially vinyl or linoleum – great for stuck-on food)
  • Outside of toilet
  • Tops of washer & dryer
  • Patio furniture
  • Play yard toys

The list could go on and on. It really is my current cleaning addiction. Simple, cheap, super effective.

Happy cleaning!
