Calmness Restored With Total Kitchen Clean Up
Recently a former colleague of mine rang me in a state of teary blubbery flux. Admittedly there was more to the sobs than just a mountain of paperwork and a grubby kitchen. However, in a desperate attempt to stem the flow and stop it becoming a torrent, I got my working gear on, cleaning stuff and vac and headed over to her. After the initial shock and objections, she caved in and we went through the list of things getting her down. Starting in the kitchen, we cleared the piles of magazines, mail – opened and unopened and other ‘stuff’. Quickly working to a routine of check, action and file or check then bin, we demolished that problem in 30 minutes. We then set about putting the kitchen to rights. With dirtiest crocks to the dishwasher and handwashing the rest we managed to clear the tops and see the floor. A quick sweep up followed by bleachy suds, her kitchen was back to magazine quality and so was the owner!
