I am once again sans photos for Tackle It Tuesday. I really need to get into the habit of keeping a camera in my hands at all times.
Anyway, my tackle for this week is one that I had been putting off for a long time.
I have a smooth-top range. It is glass and needs polished about every two weeks. It is also white, so it needs to be cleaned well each time I use it. I like to spray it down with Windex to soak, after it has cooled, while I load the dishwasher and clean up after supper. Then, I scrape or scrub it to get off any immediate stains. The polish helps keep scratches and stains down to a minimum and keeps the surface looking nice. I was very diligent about it for the first couple of years, but for the last year, polishings have been sporadic at best.
My routine had always been to polish it every other Sunday. We generally pick up chicken for lunch after church and often order pizza for supper, so it's a great day to polish and have it last for more than an hour.
This weekend, I decided to start polishing the stove top on the Sundays that I drive the kids to PSR (our Parish School of Religion). My Sister-in-law and I take turns driving, so I hope this will put me back on track to keep my stove looking and functioning nicely.
