Spring is finally here. The calendar says so – even though we just got more snow yesterday! *Sigh* Still, I remain hopeful that the warm, sunny weather will be here soon. I’m getting ready by decluttering, refreshing and giving the house a good clean. Our kitchen is the ‘hub’ of our home, so it sees a lot of traffic…and mess. Keeping the kitchen surfaces clean is a must, but I’m always looking for ways to spend less time cleaning.
I love it when a product is a ‘do-it-all.’ For example, something that can clean both dishes and kitchen surfaces like the counters and stovetop.Palmolive® Multi Surface does just that. It minimizes the time I have to spend cleaning – and does the job well. Palmolive® Multi Surface eliminates 99.9% of bacteria (*staphylococcus aureus, Salmonella enterica and E. coli ((157:H7)) from dishes and hard non porous kitchen surfaces. I can clean with confidence with that.
Aside from clean surfaces, there’s some other ways to recharge your kitchen. Try changing out your sink-side handsoaps/lotion to bring in some new colors. Decorative tea towels are a great way to add a whole new feel to a space, too.
DIY Stamped Tea Towels
When I think of spring, I think of our hydrangeas blooming – the blues/whites. It’s so beautiful to see every year. I wanted to bring that in to my kitchen and do a hand-stamped towel.
What you will need:
Flour sack tea towel or plain white fabric towel (no terrycloth)
*Waterproof Fabric Paint or if only using for display, an ordinary acrylic paint will do. Choose complimentary tones, or one light one darker or stick to one color.
Paintbrush/Surface for paint
Carefully press the stamp into the paint or, as I like to do, paint on with a brush to ensure an even coverage on the stamp.
Press onto towel in any design that you like. I chose a darker blue and a lighter blue. Together, I thought the tones really complimented each other.
I found that the medallion reminded me of my hyndrageas in an abstract way – a great way to bring some color and spring into my kitchen.
Don’t forget to try Palmolive® Multi Surface so that you can spend less time cleaning. That means more time enjoying a clean kitchen and the spring weather. I found Palmolive® Multi Surface at Walmart in the aisle with soaps and dish detergents.
You can do this project with any stamp or colors. I did these myself, but I think it would also be a fun project for the kids – they could pick out their own stamp and give as gifts.
