Family time is something that comes at a premium around here – as night shifters our family can be like ships in the night, so we have to stay organized and be super creative with family time. I mean we can’t miss out on all the silliness that our nine year old brings to our home just because of our shift! One of the things we do to stay organized is, we use Windex® Original Glass Cleaner and Windex® Vinegar Multi-Surface Cleaner which we conveniently picked up at Kroger. When I was shopping at Kroger, it was funny, because the light hit the cleaning display just so, like it was guiding me right to the Windex® brand items. Windex® brand helps us keep our home clean simply, without needing to swap between a bunch of different products. Windex® Original Glass Cleaner is perfect for so many surfaces like: sealed granite and marble, plastic, tile, glass shower doors, and more! Windex® Vinegar Multi-Surface Cleaner is great for many surfaces like: stainless steel, appliances like microwaves, stovetops, toasters, etc., kitchen fixtures and more! We can whip the kitchen and bathrooms into shape in no time, thanks to Windex®, which leaves more time for family time!

When it comes to having fun as a family, we like to keep things effortless, so our favorite thing to do together is watch movies – whether we stay in or go out to the movies, it’s a nice way to relax with each other and let our hair down. We’re particularly fond of comedies and every time something hilarious happens, the cackles can be heard far and wide (OK I’m the cackler, a very nasally cackler, which causes everyone to laugh). When something especially funny happens in a movie, we high five…I mean, can you just imagine a group of people at the theater high fiving because something silly happened in the movie? On March 25 My Big Fat Greek Wedding 2 will be in theaters (and is rated PG-13) – we’re super excited and I know we’ll be sharing lots of cackles and high fives for that one! I remember seeing the first My Big Fat Greek Wedding, we laughed so much because all of the Windex® humor reminded us of our grandfather, who never stopped making us laugh!

Another way we stay organized, is we keep everything we need to clean the kitchen, right on the counter in a fun bundt pan with a chalkboard finish so we can leave each other surprise notes! But I have to tell you, it’s no random event that I chose a bundt pan for storing our Windex® products – the bundt pan and Windex® Original Glass Cleaner are the two tangible items that married the quirkiness of the families from My Big Fat Greek Wedding 2!  A decorative bundt pan (no longer used for baking) full of Windex® is naturally a symbol of a family’s love! Today I wanted to share how I made my bundt pan caddy so you can stow your Windex® right on your counter top too!

Bundt Pan Cleaning Caddy

Put together a cleaning caddy with a bundt pan and Windex® to celebrate My Big Fat Greek Wedding 2 and the love of families! AD1 full size bundt pan (use a bundt pan that does not have a non-stick surface)
Chalkboard paint (you can use a spray variety, but I used a brush on type – if you use a spray on variety, you can skip the paint brush and paint container)
Paint brush
Paint container
Parchment paper
Chalk

  • Turn the bundt pan upside down on top of the parchment paper and give the sides a coat of paint and allow to dry on top of the parchment paper
  • After the first coat of paint has dried give it one last coat
  • Allow the paint to dry for 24 hours (or according to your particular paint variety)
  • Prime the painted sides of the bundt pan by rubbing chalk sideways over the chalkboard surface
  • Gently wipe off the chalk and you’re ready to write sweet and silly notes on your bundt pan caddy

ADAs a bonus, you could use a contrasting paint color for the inside of your bundt pan caddy that matches your kitchen…but shhhh, don’t tell anyone, I’m going to leave mine plain.

Note: this cleaning caddy is for decorative use only and can no longer be used for baking.

    This is a cute idea, Heather, but I don’t think I could give up my Bundt pan(s) as a cleaning caddy. Clever idea if I find one at a thrift store or yard sale though.

    Thanks for sharing.

    This is a very creative way of storing and displaying your cleaning supplies… it may even help to get you in the mood to clean! ;)
