Here is my submission for the Nest BB - Sand - Clean a Kitchen BB.
To document the completion of the BB, I have provided the following photos:
- post a before picture of: sink, counters, table, stovetop, and floor
- post an after picture of: sink, counters, table, stovetop, and floor
- post a report on what cleaners you used: I used Desert Essence Castile Liquid Soap for scrubbing the sinks and metal counter. Photos of the soap can be found in my Wash Dishes Post and it is biodegradable.
For cleaners I used some baking soda and vinegar, but mostly just cold water. This BB asks for before and after photos of the table. The problem I have here is that you are assuming I have a kitchen table. I don't really. However, I had just done the dishes (read the requirements for that BB afterward and realized I used more water than was allowed so no submission there) and brought out my folding table to dry them (I don't have a dishwasher to dry dishes in either). If you really need a table for this consider the one loaded with dishes it and I'll add a shot of it cleaned off. ;) Oh, in fairness too I should note that I cleaned much of stove top mess before my "before" shot while doing the dishes. However, I hadn't really gone at it all so I cleaned it better for this BB. Finally in case you are wondering about all the white powder in the before shots that is DE I laid down this spring to deal with tiny ants with a serious exploratory bent. They were even getting into the fridge forcing me to make a moat of the DE all around it! Ok, here are the pics.
I herby certify that this badge bit is complete, and you have earned the air nest badge!

I have a feeling my submission above got missed since all I submitted that day have not been responded to. If I am missing something for it or it doesn't qualify just let me know. If I'm just getting too antsy just ignore me too. I can be patient. ;)
I clean my kitchen regularly and the house is only 2 and a half years old (we bought it secondhand and only moved in 3 months ago) so it isn't massively dirty. I used mostly tepid water and a cloth but for some rust stains I used citric acid powder dissolved in water and salt with a tawashi and for the stove I used baking soda and made a paste and left it. For the floor I used water and a homemade (by MIL) zoukin.
