My kitchen counters are generally a disaster. Except for on Sunday afternoon when I force ask my family to help me clean the house, they are covered in school work, backpacks, empty plastic cups, and half-eaten bags of Goldfish. I’ve never been mistaken for Martha Stewart, y’all.
But, our food prep area gets wiped down (most) every night. This is always the place I worry about being super germy, but I don’t want to use anything too harsh on my granite countertops. And whatever I did use ended up leaving them cloudy and streaky.
Since steam is so good for my floors, showers, oven, and windows, I figured it might help clean my food prep area, too. So, I took the handheld portion out of my Home Right Steam Machine and added the squeege attachment to it.
Just like I would in the shower, I squeeged the counter while applying the steam.
When I was finished, I dried the counter with a clean microfiber cloth.
Y’all, I seriously can’t even believe the difference. When I run my hand over this section of countertop, it feels as smooth as glass. My countertops have never felt that clean, even when I use chemicals and sponges.
So, score another one for the Steam Machine Plus! (Amazon affiliate link) I might have to take over the Sunday kitchen duties from my husband since it’s so easy now. He can deal with the bathrooms instead of me.
