When you have little ones in the home, it seems like the days are spent cleaning up one mess after another! I don’t know about you, but I am always on the lookout for tips, tricks and tools that help make the task of constant cleaning a little easier. With that in mind, I decided to start a new series on cleaning supplies that I can’t imagine living without, because that are just. that. awesome.
The first thing that comes to mind when I think of cleaning supplies or tools that I can’t imagine life without is, without a doubt, these Pampered Chef Pan Scrapers. They were created to help effectively scrape off baked-on food from their cookware without scratching up the pans. What I didn’t know when I bought these is that they would become cleaning life savers in our home! They work amazingly well at removing so much more than just food from pans! I use them to scrap dried messes off my tables, counters and wood floors, plus they help quickly remove sticker residue from furniture, and so, SO much more! We own about a dozen of these amazing little things, and my husband and I both have come to appreciate them more and more. Here are some before and after pictures to show you just some of the messes these little beauties have helped us with:
This one shows some yogurt that my 2-year-old so artfully decorated our coffee table with. I hadn’t realized she did it until after it dried. I dampened the yogurt with a rag, then a little scraping took it right off!
Shown here is some some super sticky residue on our hardwood floors left from a sticker one of our kids had put in the floor. This took a tad more elbow grease than the previous messes, but the scraper still managed to get it off!
Seriously, I just can’t say enough about these. I speak highly of all Pampered Chef products, but these are hands down my favorite. (For what it’s worth, I am not a Pampered Chef consultant – just a satisfied customer!)
