To the Average Joe a housekeeper may not hold a highly valued job, but let’s break down why that is so wrong.

That seems like a very highly respectable job to me once it’s broken down. Your children may have no idea who cleans their bedrooms and baths or who scrapes the gum off of their hiding places in their rooms. They probably don’t value the cost their parents pay for the help either.

I have tried this in every single pot that required the scrubby side of the sponge. Follow these 5 simple steps and notice “scrubbing” definitely is not one of them!
