When Pioneer Woman speaks, we listen. She holds clout on many subjects now in my book so when she recommended a trip to the local Wal Marts to buy a certain kind of dish rag, I was all ears. I don't know why, but my microfiber dishcloths all leave a film on the countertops and the glass top range. Greasy... it smears instead of cleaning. I do make a mess cooking, there's almost always something that's sauteed or FRIED as Mama would call it! Bacon grease is saved and used in my household so there's a good reason for the dishwater to get a little greasy. I pull out the big guns and use Dawn's Power Scrubber Liquid so there's NO reason for the schmeary mess, I won't stand for it!
Ree had said the Basic ones, no frills at $4.99 a package worked great cleaning up all kinds of messes so I grabbed a package but as so often happens at Wal-mart, my eye was drawn to attractive packaging just next to the bargain ones. It was Clorox's new antibacterial dishcloths. They are activated once you give them a swim in Clorox water and then the antimicrobial magic continues wash to wash. Not sure how they do that trick, but I could barely contain my enthusiasm as I tore into the package as soon as I got home! A few clips and I had one of them free, dipped it in bleach water and then into a sudsy sink and went to cleaning.
Sparkly, squeaky clean countertops.
Then I went over the stovetop and the range hood and the tile backsplash and the cabinet fronts and the refrigerator shelves and the top of the mixer and the coffeepot and the toaster and you know what? It worked, there's not a smeary mark anywhere.
That Ree Drummond is one smart cookie, and she can make them too! What's Ree taught you how to do?
