Every Day is a Clorox Bleachable Moment in our Home....

These icky sponges are a Bleachable Moment!
I don't use bleach for everything, but when I do, it usually involves my kitchen.  One of the "Bleachable Moments" that happens every few days is the cleaning of my kitchen sponges.  My husband HATES that I used sponges (he calls them germ bars).  I find that I like how they suds up when I use them to do dishes, however, so I keep them around.  By putting them in my white load on "sanitize" with the recommended amount of Clorox Liquid Bleach in the cycle, I can ensure that they come out smelling great and without icky germs.  I also hang them on the line to dry -- the extra sun is a nice touch!

All clean!
Another "Bleachable Moment" in our home involves the dishes.  We don't have a dish washer, and my sink is tiny!  We have resorted to having one clean plastic tub on one side for hot soapy water, and one plastic tub on the other for one gallon of sanitizing lukewarm rinse water with a tiny bit (1/4 teaspoon) of concentrated Clorox unscented bleach in it.  This makes certain that our dishes are sanitized, especially during times when flu is rampant in the house.

Our routine uses less water and energy, and I never have greasy dishes or stinky storage containers.

1. Wash in hot suds.

2.  Rinse with warm water from the tap.
3.  Place into a lukewarm sanitizing solutions for 2 minutes. 

 3.  Air dry!

Since I have to store all of my dishwashing supplies under the sink. I appreciate that the Clorox Bleach comes in a smaller, concentrated bottle.  It has the same amount of bleach per bottle, but it's lighter.  I can easily bend down with my pregnant body and grab the bottle.  No more lugging!

You can find Clorox Bleach at your local Walmart.  It's a staple in my home that I use for laundry, dishes, and general tough cleaning.  What's your most "bleachable moment?"
