Cleaning Tips To Make Your Kitchen Sparkle

cleaning_tricksOver the years I have come up with some tips to help me maintain that sparkle in my home.  With our new renovated kitchen I especially want to make sure I keep these tips in place in the kitchen.  I shared in a video how to use simple techniques that will make your life so much easier.

I hope you will find the tips in this video not only helpful but fun to watch!



  1. Kimberly Buckner says:

    Hello Nikki, I LOVE your videos!
    How do you keep your counter tops clean and shiny? I have granite counter tops in my kitchen (color pattern: Uba tuba). I can never get them as shiny and as clean as I want without smudges.


  2. Tenile says:

    Where do you get your sponges? Also I love the scrub brush with the wooden handle and teal top, do you mind telling me where you go that also?

  3. Helen Larson says:

    First: I love you-you are awesome and have truly inspired me. Your organized home is so impressive and so beautiful! If I could just get the husband to cooperate that would help. I am hunting high and low for these stainless steel baskets with white liners–help! I must have them–they look so cute and awesome with your labels! Also, we have horrible water in CA–how do I keep the water spots off the coffee pot? I also would love to see how you would organize ‘small closets’ and front door coat closet.

  4. Helen Larson says:

    Thank you for all your tips and videos, you can’t imagine how helpful and inspirational they are. You need your own show and please know I am your biggest fan! Please keep enlightening–you are amazing!

  10. Pam Schafer says:

    Nikki, I love this kitchen! I love everything about it! You have a gift, and I just needed to tell you how much I enjoy seeing the things you create. If I can be so bold, I would live to ask where your sign above the table came from. It takes my breath away, and I would very much like to to order or buy one. Thank you for sharing your beautiful things with us. Hugs! — Pam 🙂

  26. Jacqueline says:

    Hi Nikki
    I love your trick to a sparkling kitchen video. I have been watching your video for a few months now and Love them. My question is where did you buy your diffuser from?

    There is so many out there and I really like the look of yours. If you can point me to a direction it would be Aprreciated

    Thank you

  27. Lynn Kraus says:

    Hi Nikki,

    Just found you today, and love your tips and your incredible sense of style. Your home is stunning! And your personality is so engaging. I could sit here and watch you all day.

    One thing I do first thing in the morning is to set aside the previous day’s linens, pull out fresh and tidy up dishes from the evening snacking. I spray and wipe down the counters with the previous day’s towel if it’s not too dirty and then the previous linens go into the laundry room. That way I know that the linens are fresh and clean every day.

    About the crocheted dish cloths, I make my own. Most major yarn companies make a 100% cotton yarn that is meant for this sort of application. Crocheting is so easy and relaxing, and there are tons of videos online to learn. It is a very relaxing TV project, and dishcloths make up so quickly with little time you’ll be making 2 or 3 in an evening.

    Thanks for being so awesome,

    • Nikki says:

      Hi Lynn! I hope this finds you well! You have a awesome system! Love it! Thanks for the tip about watching the videos on crocheting! I am going to do that. I had been recovering the past few weeks and this would have been the perfect outlet during that time! Hugs and love Nik

    Hi Nikki- I just started following you and I LOVE YOU! All your videos are so inspiring. I’m a working mom of 3 and trying to hold a household together is a bit challenging. Have you done a video about organizing your sheets in a linen closet? I saw the towels but couldn’t find sheets. Keep posting! Xoxo Becky
