Have you ever noticed that your kitchen is the heart of your home? No matter what type of social gathering I have been to in someone’s home, the kitchen is usually the most popular area to hang out. The kitchen can also be the dirtiest, most germ infested area as well. From trash cans to chicken in the sink, the germs are setting and spreading unnoticeable to the human eye.

Let's find out what it is, how to get rid of it, and how to keep it GONE!

OK - enough joking....

But, what if we solved your problem? Check out this video and the instructions below to easily fold that fitted sheet (and treat yourself after)…

You can hire a professional cleaning company to help you clean the things you are too busy to care for around the house. However, there are just some things you have to clean out personally. The area of your home office that is designed for your work space can get overwhelmed with kids’ school permission slips to sign and bills from 1999.
There are some papers we have to keep for a certain amount of time, but time is something that we all are short of. Therefore, clearly it’s easy for those papers to stack up.
If you personally are already on top of this “shred and toss” method, that is awesome. But it’s a good idea to share this method with our teens headed to college and/or older parents living alone.
