Cleaning pots and cleaning counter tops

Do you use different things, there are times when DH insists on wiping the counters with what I use to clean the pots. I like two different things

How do you feel

Can you specify what you use on your pots and counters?       @I am still oxox

@I am still oxox I use two different items.  My dear gentleman friends usually follows suit, but not always.  He gets points for always cleaning up when he cooks, as I do, as not everyone does.

 

I like always having a clean kitchen and bathroom.

 

I use Dobie pads for dishes and kitchen sink.  I use waffle weave dish cloths for marble counters and stainless steel restaurant work table.

 

In the bathrooms I use a different colored set of cloths for the sink and outside of the toilets and a different color for the tub.

 

For the mirrors I use glass cleaner with old newspapers.

I say whoever is doing the cleaning should be able to use whatever they want!  Some men never  clean anything.    My SO often does things differently than I do cleaning wise - who cares.  If he criticized me - then that would be his job permanently.

I use a clean dishrag for everything.

Use a fresh one after every meal cleanup.

Sometimes in-between, paper towels, or those wet wipes for cleaning.

I use Clorox Wipes on the countertops daily plus I remove everything from all the counters weekly to wipe them down.

I wash pots & pans in a sink of hot soapy water. I use Dawn (blue one). I have never put those things in a dishwasher. I assume they will last a lot longer that way.

Have not used our dishwasher in several years now. Never buying another one. LOL!!!

Re: Cleaning pots and cleaning counter tops

I use Clorox wipes for all counters, tables, and stove.  For pots I use a nylon crocheted pad (like from Heloise) or those yellow sponge things (talk about a short memory, my mind went blank).  Most pans go into dishwasher after the serious gunk is removed.
