If you do anything in the kitchen - even if it's just using the microwave - you know how easy it is to dirty up this space. And at The Meal Planning Method, we firmly believe keeping your kitchen space *so fresh and so clean, clean* is important. Yes, important because of germs (#duh), but also because you want your kitchen to a be a place that feels inviting and comfortable so you'll actually WANT to utilize it. (You know the scenario where you're too tired at the end of the day so you just let all your dirty dishes, pots, and pans pile up? Yeah, no one wants to go near that!) Today, we're sharing about a fabulous service that helps keeps our kitchen spic and span!
CLEANING VS. DISINFECTING
Did you know that there's a different between "cleaning" and "disinfecting"? According to the CDC, "Cleaning removes germs from surfaces – whereas disinfecting actually destroys them." This is important to know because your kitchen may look clean on the surface, but it's very possible that you have germs still sticking around. * BLEH!* The bottom line is, if you're doing any type of food prep (which we certainly hope you are) -- especially meats and poultry -- that you practice clean kitchen habits by cleaning AND disinfecting this sacred space.
WHAT IS GROVE COLLABORATIVE?
We want to share about a service that helps us keep kitchen cleaning top of mind (because let's be honest it's not exactly #1 on the to-do list)... meet GROVE COLLABORATIVE! Grove Collaborative delivers all-natural home, beauty, and even personal care products directly to your door at discounted prices. And if you're like me, then you're a sucker for a bargain, especially for good-for-you products that make sense for your meal planning lifestyle!
Just check out all the Grove Collaborative VIP swag we got at no additional charge this last year.
Umm... you guys, that's over $64 worth of free product, not including the free shipping I received with every order! Gahhh I love saving when it makes sense!
And please know you don't have to be a VIP member of Grove Collaborative to order their products (their service is FREE), but their VIP membership ($19.99 per year) totally pays for itself and more! You can learn more about their VIP membership here, but my favorite features are the unlimited free shipping and of course the free full-sized gifts throughout the year! (For those who really love to save, I've read that Grove Collaborative also does price matching too.)
