*In partnership with Joy Philippines *
When our kasambahay asked permission if she can go on leave for 2 weeks last December, I smiled and said yes right away. She deserves it because napakasipag talaga ng taong yun. However, pagtalikod ko, the first thought that came to my mind was, “Sinong maghuhugas ng mga plato when she’s gone?!?!”
I used to say that my favorite chore was washing the dishes. That was back when LT was taking care of us. When our kasambahay would also take a vacation, LT would ask me to wash the dishes. Okay lang sa akin as long as LT will take out the excess food and oil from the plates and the grease from the cooking pans. One, I don’t like touching the the excess food and two, napaka-hirap kaya alisin yung sebo! So technically, I was enjoying washing the dishes because it was easy for me.
Fast forward to 25 years after, becoming a mom changes you talaga. Apart from being more conscious about everyone’s health, I don’t mind touching the excess food while watching the dishes anymore.
I still hate the sebo build up sa mga plato especially on the cooking pans. Gosh! They are seriously not easy to clean and remove! Ako pa naman si OC maghugas. I want them really clean and void of any residue from what was eaten or cooked on it. It’s not healthy kasi eh and I’m very much protective of my family’s health. That means, washing the dishes is (1) magastos sa oras, (2) magastos sa tubig and (3) magastos sa dishwashing soap. Don’t you agree?
Back to my kwento. And so last December, I had no choice but to wash the dishes for two weeks. Alvin was the one who cooked. Anika was the one who set the table. So naturally, ang toka ko ay ang maghugas.
It was sad. Imagine Anika and Alvin already watching TV samantalang ako naghuhugas pa? Napakatagal. Bad trip na nga ako kasi ang hirap hugasan yung mga frying pans dahil sa oil, I can hear both of them laughing pa in our living room. I so wanted to join them already. Nakaka-inggit. Sayang ang lost spending time with them. Also, since I’m a working mom, time is gold for me. I need to finish the chores so I can attend to my family and then do the work reports I bring home. I need to finish the chores so I can take a bath and have me time naman.
Working mothers need products that can help up speed things and make the chores more efficient.
Thankfully, our go to dishwashing liquid Joy, has now a new and improved formulation.
The best ever Joy has innovated itself: zero sebo na talaga!
Do you know what that means?
Napakadali na talaga literally ang maghugas.
Because of its concentrated formula, a few drops goes a long way na. No need to dilute it water. Mas makakatipid ka if you use it correctly.
Just add a few drops of Joy in your sponge.
Squeeze squeeze ng slight para bumula.
Then wash your dishes na.
For the frying pans which is full of oil, what I do is I put 2 to 3 drops of Joy on it first before I start washing the dishes. By the time I finish washing all the eating plates and eating utensils, wala nang sebo yung mga frying pan. Well, hindi naman like magic na nawawa actually. It’s gone in a sense that it’s not sticky anymore and it washes off easily already. Winner. It saved me a lot of time. Hindi na din ako naaawa sa sarili ko that I spend so much time scrubbing the pans whereas pwede na sana ako makipaglaro kay Anika.
Another hack I use Joy with is after I wash all the dishes, I clean the sink with the Joy dishwashing liquid. It gets rid of all the grease left on the sink. For me, there’s no other dishwashing liquid or cleaner can remove it that fast like Joy does.
The new best ever Joy cuts short my dishwashing chore. It also makes me worry free na mabilis ko nga natapos ang hugasan plus I am assured that the plates and all other kitchen utensils are clean and germ free. It gives me more time to do the other things I want to do with a peace of mind. Galing.
That is one tip I can give to working mothers out there. Choose wisely the products that can help you in your daily lives. Find quality products that can make your lives easier and worry free. Having a full time job, I always worry that I don’t get to spend that much time with my family. Important kasi sa akin yun. Thankfully, having the new best ever Joy, makes that happen. It removes the hard to wash off grease faster. This gives you more time with your family so you can enjoy more your best ever lives!
