Once school starts back up I will have the time to clean out closets, organize drawers and do some deep cleaning. Well that is what I hope for at least! Over the summer, I am shocked at how dirty the house gets over the summer with kids running amuck all day and using the kitchen non-stop. It would be a lie if I said I was not looking forward to school starting up. I love the ability to run out of town on a whim, but looking forward to set work hours again. To keep up with kitchen mess we used Rock Doctor complete stone care system to safely clean our granite countertops.
