|This spice shelf needs serious attention|
|No wonder I can never find anything for dinner!|
There are plenty of places to start but I'm tackling the biggest of my troubles and that's the kitchen. Just take a look at these horrific images that I can't believe I'm showing!
When I worked on this ranch in Buena Vista, CO the owner, who is somewhat of a superwoman, made a point of deep cleaning the pots, pans, and cookware each season to extend the life of each piece. Now that I've invested in a few nice peices of cookware I really want to make an effort to do the same. Recently I found the time and the ambition to start this resolution!

- Bar Keeper's Friend
- Dr. Bronner's Organic Castile Soap
- Ball of foil
- Dirty stainless or glass pots or pans
- Make a paste using the power and soap
- Grab your scrubber and get to work
- Use the ball of foil for really tough, thick crud
*Unless you want a layer of skin to peel off your hands, please wear gloves! I'll spare you the image of my poor hands and their current state of exfoliation.
**My concoction doesn't eliminate good, hard scrubbing from the equation but it definitely made it a little easier than I had expected. All in all it took me an hour to clean about ten pots and dishes.
