It's been a little over a month since we moved into our little rental.
And life is good.
Not perfect, perhaps, but good.
But there are things that come with living in a rental that are never quite what you imagined them to be.
And one of them just happens to be cleaning up someone else's messes.
Not that I enjoy it, just that it came with this territory.
And today, of all days, I could take it no more.
Mostly because the grossness was getting to me.
Let me explain.
In our little rental kitchen, we have a little rental stove top.
And above that is a little rental vent hood.
It's fine from this angle.
But get a little closer and you might notice a dirty little secret this vent hood was trying to hide.
Underneath my vent hood.
Let's zoom out, shall we?
And that's AFTER I scrubbed it for a good 20 minutes.
But then I remembered a little something my momma told me.
Not to mention a commercial or two about Dawn dishwashing detergent getting the grease off of pretty much anything.
So I thought I would give it my best shot.
And literally, a couple scrubs and the grease melted away.
Sticky, greasy, hot messes really can be cleaned with just a little help from this magical substance.
The helpful how-to here???
Learn from my mistake.
Start out using it.
Don't wait until you are 20 minutes in with a ginormous preggo back ache!!!
Not that you would have a preggo back ache, but still....
