We’ve all been there.
A sink full of dirty dishes that is so intimidating that avoiding the kitchen all together seems like a better solution then dealing with it’s evil glare.
We call it dish denial.
But it doesn’t always have to be that way. In fact, lately we’ve been pretty speedy about cleaning up our meal-mess due to some new fragrant additions… We’re talking about luxurious soap for the kitchen.
Luxe lathering, by no means has to mean expensive. But good quality and a mood lifting aroma are definitely key players when looking for a soap ace enough to get the job done with a smile.
Here are a few of our favorites for both your hands…and your dishes.above images: miles aldridge for vogue italia
