Actually I wrote all about what I had planned to do on Saturday here. Unfortunately I got sidetracked right from the beginning.
I was planning to paint but I couldn’t get the dried up roller sleeves off the handle times 3.
Instead I wanted to see if the stainless steel counter was truly clean. My idea was to make a nice bucket of hot soapy water and wash it down with a clean sponge.
After I did that I could still see marks that had not washed off. I then tried Brasso which says on the bottle it can be used for stainless steel.
It worked great. It took off all the markings and tons of black gunk that I would have sworn did not exist except that I saw the residue on the sponge.
After drying the counter I sprayed some furniture polish on a rag and wiped down the entire countertop. I wanted to use my mother’s old stand by kitchen polish, Jubilee, but I couldn’t find any (and I know we have 2 or 3 cans of it).
Then Charlie helped me to level the undercounter refrigerator by adjusting the feet. It just fits in the opening created for it.
Hopefully this coming week our contractor will hook the water up in the kitchen sinks and install the dishwasher.
Then look out because we’ll wash the dust off of everything and put it way.
Aaaah, running water in the kitchen. Can’t wait.
What’s your favorite kitchen cleaner?
