The holidays are a great time to make a mess in the kitchen! From baking with the whole family to holiday parties, this is the time of year where the kitchen has a sticky splotch on the floor from brownie batter or gravy. The messy aftermath of gatherings and parties can be a real drag. Did you know that over 50% of Americans said they would entertain more if they didn’t have to worry about the clean-up?!? We’re missing out on some serious parties and events!
Well, Formula 409® makes it easy to clean-up kitchen messes, so there is no need to fear the end-of-night clean-up from the baking parties or the big meals. I actually enjoy the clean-up part. My husband and I have a great “system” where we sit down for a few minutes at the end of a gathering to talk about how things went, conversations we had, highlights of the event, etc. Once we’ve had a few minutes to rest, we then tackle the mess.
We all know that nothing is immune to the mess. We often find spots on our newly painted white-ish cabinets. The stove is generally a greasy mess and the floor. Oh, the floor. Formula 409® Antibacterial All-Purpose Cleaner easily cleans grease and other kitchen surfaces, like the spots on the floor, with just a swipe and a wipe. It kills 99.9% of germs on hard non-porous surfaces (yay, says this mom of a crawling baby!) Formula 409® is also available in Glass & Surface Cleaner, Natural Stone & Steel Cleaner and Carpet Spot & Stain Cleaner so you can clean just about any possible mess from your party…including the cupcake that your child dropped on the carpet upstairs. (Not that this happened at a recent birthday party?!?)
To help you get through the cooking and entertaining messes of the holidays, Formula 409® is giving a holiday baking basket away to a lucky winner. It includes fun bakeware, but more importantly, the Formula 409® you’ll need to easily clean-up the mess.
