How Doing the Dishes Increases My Productivity
This post is sponsored by Cascade pure essentials. I was gifted samples to try and will be compensated for my review. However, my opinions always have been and always will be 100% my own!
I have always hated doing the dishes. It’s one of my least favorite chores and I’d rather do pretty much anything else than the dishes! As a wife and mother, it often falls on me to make sure the kitchen is clean and the dishes are done. My husband is happy to help in the evenings after dinner, but we use dishes all day and if I always wait around for him, they tend to pile up!
Lately I have been trying to increase my own productivity. It’s amazing how sometimes one tiny thing can help you want to be better in all areas. We got a new mattress a few weeks ago and that encouraged me to rearrange my room, start making my bed every morning, and begin to pick up clutter every time I leave a room. Once I had a handle on those simple tasks, I moved on to the kitchen.
What is it about a clean kitchen sink that makes you feel like you can accomplish anything?! Since I hate doing the dishes so much, when my sink is clean I feel like I’ve really done a lot. It gets me excited to clean more and pushes me to keep things clean!
Now that I have two kids, I know too well how easily mess and clutter can pile up. It’s my new goal to push past my procrastination and keep my house clean. Every time I think “ehh I’ll get to that later” I try to think (louder) “NO. Do it NOW!” and I never regret just doing it right then. I might sound a little crazy but it’s been working for me!
I love our new Cascade pure essentials ActionPacs to keep my dishes squeaky clean.
The new simplified formula is infused with biobased ingredients and doesn’t contain any phosphates or chlorine bleach. Even so, it still manages to get even the toughest dishes clean! I love when I can feel good about a cleaning product I use regularly in my home. Especially having young children around! Remember to keep all cleaning supplies safely locked up and out of reach of tiny hands.
The pleasant scent comes from these ctionacs perfumes being infused with essential oils! They are also Cascade’s only dye free liquid topped ActionPac. These little guys are tiny but mighty because they can blast away an entire 24 hours worth of stuck on food…which as we all know can be inevitable with parenthood getting in the way of always getting the sink cleaned out! Or how about those sneaky dishes we sometimes find hiding around the house?
