Over the past couple weeks I’ve been noticing (and ignoring) a little grime showing its face in our flatware drawer. Finally, the time came to deal with the dirt. This is a quick little chore that you may want to consider. Just pull your spoons, forks, and knives out of the drawer and you may discover this:
Eeeeeeeeew. Grime. Fortunately this was easily solved.
First, take everything out of the drawer including any flatware organizers you might have. I just have this one bamboo tray.
I used a 50/50 vinegar water spray and a damp sponge to get up most of the crumbs and grime. Some stickier, greasier spots needed a small amount of dish soap. I made sure I got all the water and moisture up and left the drawer open to dry.
Then I quickly tackled the bamboo tray. Again, all it took was the vinegar spray, a damp sponge, and a little dish soap. Once that was all done, I left everything out to dry for a few minutes.
Then, the bamboo tray went back in the drawer, followed by all the flatware. Voila! A clean and tidy flatware drawer. Well worth the 20 minute project.
What little cleaning projects have you found that can go unnoticed and/or ignored for quite some time?
