With long to-do lists, work responsibilities, families and more the last thing you need to add to your list is long winded kitchen cleaning tips. These tips are simple, take very little time and will ensure your kitchen is fully cleaned, all the time.
1. Clean your blender immediately.
Those that use a blender regularly know how difficult they can be to clean. After you’ve poured your drink out, add some water and a drop of dish soap to your dirty blender. Turn it on for 20-30 seconds, dump the water out and rinse to make cleaning your blender a breeze.
2. Clean your microwave without scrubbing.
The easiest way to clean a microwave is to place some wet paper towels inside and turn it on high for 3-5 minutes. The steam from the towels will loosen the grime. At the end of the 3-5-minute cycle, remove the wet towels and wipe away any remaining food.
3. Clean your coffee pot.
If you use a traditional coffee maker, you may notice the glass begin to develop a brown haze quickly. Ice, salt and lemon is the cure for your hazy glass. Fill the pot ¼ full of ice, squeeze the lemon into the pot (cut in quarters) and add 2 tablespoons of salt. Swirl the mixture and the inside surface will come clean. Rinse after the stains are remove and you’re ready to brew your next pot.
4. Clean your garbage disposal.
To rid your disposal of smells and deep clean the entire system use ice cubes made of a half vinegar, half water mixture. Place the ice cubes in the unit and grind until gone. This process literally takes no time at all and can keep your kitchen smelling fresh and clean.
5. Clean a cast iron pan.
Using liquid soap and scrubbing a cast iron pan is a huge no-no. Typically pans can be rinsed clean with water and a soft dishcloth, however if that’s not enough use a few tablespoons of salt and a paper towel, then rinse. Replenish the oil film by coating the surface with a drop of cooking oil.
Quick and simple cleaning tips are a great way to be sure you stay on top of your household chores.
