Cleaning your kitchen can be a tireless task. The moment it is all done it seems like it needs attention all over again. It can be one of those rooms that just get’s messy so quick. This is most likely down to it being a busy place where not only do you cook, but you congregate and meet as a family. So I thought I would share with you some DIY hacks for cleaning the kitchen quickly and effectively.
Oven cleaning is tough
I think cleaning your oven can be one of the worst chores you have to do in your kitchen. How does it get so greasy and disgusting so quick? You can create a great homemade solution that will clean things off without a glitch. It’s as simple as using bi-carbonate soda, white wine vinegar and some washing up liquid. It eats into the grease and will have your oven sparkling. However, it isn’t the most pleasant job to do so it might be worth contacting someone who offers oven cleaning services. No one would blame you for getting this done.
Your microwave may need attention
A microwave is quite often a kitchen tool that gets forgotten when it comes to cleaning chores. However, you will find that it can be one of the grubbiest places. There is a great solution to cleaning your microwave that takes very little effort. All you need to do is fill a microwave safe bowl with two cups of water, two tablespoons of white vinegar and a few drops of an essential oil. Place the microwave on for five minutes and let the steam work its magic.
Get your stainless kitchen sink to shine
Baking soda will become your go to cupboard item when it comes to cleaning. Especially your stainless steel sink and drain. Sprinkle some onto your skin and then use an old toothbrush to scrub the sink. Rinse and watch your sink sparkle.
Lemon and vinegar, two ingredients never to be without
You will find that the combination of lemon and vinegar will go far to providing many hacks in your kitchen. Not only will it remove grease from your skin it can even unclog your garbage disposal. Another great use of these two ingredients is to combine them and place it in the fridge. They can magically get rid of the foul smell that can develop in your fridge.
Wooden cutting boards won’t be a problem anymore
Two special ingredients will be all you need to disinfect and degrease your wooden cutting boards. Unfortunately, these can be a place that bacteria can thrive so taking the time to clean them properly is essential. Sprinkle salt on to the wood board along with rubbing the lemon and some water. Get yourself a sponge and scrub. Once you have cleaned it rinse them off and you are all set.
