Today’s post was originally going to be ‘how to make home-made pizza with the kids’ as this was the Saturday afternoon activity planned at the Wright household!
However my beautiful daughter got a better offer and she took it! Who can blame her?
So Saturday afternoon’s activities changed to Daughter at her friends, Hubby out with Son and I got a chance to go for a run with a friend…
It’s a good job ‘Big Ben’ my large slow cooker made a huge amount of Vegetable Curry last night (from my odds and ends that I hadn’t used up) – so much that, as I am out with the girls and Daughter is staying for dinner at her friends, Hubby and Son can enjoy it again tonight with some rice…
I thought I’d share instead what I did very early this morning…wait for it this is awfully exciting… I cleaned my fridge!
As I had taken part in Food Waste Friday yesterday over at The Frugal Girl, ny fridge was nearly bare and my grocery delivery was arriving at 9am. So dressed in PJ’s I emptied what was left, milk, condiments, garlic etc… onto the counter and cleaned the entire fridge which took about 10 mins max.
Now I am no expert on chemicals, and I hold no credible or authoritative view on cleaning products etc… but what I do know is if I don’t have to use them I don’t. Firstly I do rather dislike cleaning (although I do of course do it) and one of the ways I can get satisfaction from it is knowing I have used a natural product to clean with.
In this case is it bicarbonate of soda – very inexpensive and in a tiny container – double win!
So armed with nothing more than a small pot of bicarb, a damp kitchen sponge and some kitchen roll I wiped thoroughly inside the fridge with a damp sponge sprinkled in bicarb, then rinsed with a washed out sponge, and finally dried with kitchen roll.
How simple is that?
