Cleaning your kitchen sink until it shines is the first household chore of the Flylady system of home management. (You can learn how to shine your sink in Flylady’s post, FLYing Lesson: Shining Your Sink.) It’s a fairly simple task that provides an amazing sense of accomplishment after you do it for the first time. Then, you maintain your clean, shiny sink with a quick spray-and-wipe every night as part of your before-bed routine. When you wake up in the morning to a clean kitchen with a shiny sink, it’s bound to put a smile on your face.
I’ll admit it: I don’t shine my sink every night. But, today is a new day to reboot my routines after a few months of struggling with anxiety and bipolar depression.
Now, it’s your turn to start reclaiming your sanity with this small step – shine your sink tonight!
