It seems that no matter how often the kitchen is cleaned you always find that something is dirty or messy again in a moment. When you have seven people in a little house, this is VERY true.

I used an all-purpose spray we make which is one part water to one part peroxide and a few drops of essential oils (citrus oils keep sugar ants away so we often use that.)

We do not have a kitchen table but we have lots of counters, I hope that isn't an issue with the requirements.

I feel comfortable showing y'all what happens when kids come home to visit for the weekend but don't help clean up, since others here have been so open.  

I used baking soda on the sink and stove.  I use an o'cedar mop with reusable mop head.  I had washed jars for canning in Mrs. Meyers dish soap, and dipped the reusable pad in that dishwater for mopping.  Same for the counters.
