Do you have boys? If you do, you know this is true – even when your bathroom is sparkling clean, the “boy bathroom smell” will linger. Mopping is not enough. You need to eliminate the odor.

Anna Mosely’s blog offers a recipe for getting rid of the boy bathroom smell, once and for all.

There are 3 reasons I like this article.

  • It’s simple. With only 3 ingredients and 3 steps, this is an easy recipe to implement.
  • It’s green. At Sponge & Sparkle, we are committed to using non-toxic cleaning products whenever possible. Vinegar, baking soda, lemon juice – that’s all this cleaning recipe requires.
  • It’s frugal. The ingredients shouldn’t cost you more than $3.

3 Tips for a Cleaner Kitchen In Less Time

According to the 2014 American Time Use Survey from the Bureau of Labor Statistics, we spend an average of 353 hours each year cleaning.  The kitchen is usually where we spend the most cleaning time.

Here are 3 quick tips to reduce the time you spend cleaning your kitchen.

  1. Spray your food storage containers with non-stick cooking spray before pouring in tomato-based sauces. This will keep your containers stain-free – no more scrubbing!
  2. Throw your kitchen sponges in the dishwasher cutlery tray. They will stay in place there and come out bacteria free.
  3. Purchase inexpensive oven liners (I get mine at Kroger) so that you never need to use toxic oven cleaners.
