There’s nothing better than a clean kitchen for a healthy, organized home. However, for people with busy schedules and countless responsibilities, finding time-saving cleaning solutions can be difficult. If you want a spotless kitchen without wasting a lot of time cleaning, there are some clever tricks you can use.

1. Keeping your kitchen clean

The health benefits of a clean kitchen go beyond its aesthetic value. By removing grease and food particles, we can stop the growth of dangerous bacteria and reduce the risk of food poisoning. A clean kitchen also promotes better eating habits by providing a hygienic cooking environment.

2. Increase productivity

A clean and tidy kitchen makes cooking and preparing meals easier. When there is no clutter and all surfaces are clean, it is easier to find tools and ingredients, saving time and reducing frustration.

Discover 10 smart strategies to keep your kitchen sparkling

Tip No. 1: Degreaser Made with Vinegar and Baking Soda

When you mix baking soda with vinegar, you get a powerful cleaning solution that can remove stubborn grease and grime from kitchen surfaces. For a glossy finish, apply the mixture to greasy stoves, countertops and extractor hoods and then wipe clean.

Tip #2: Use lemon and salt as cutting board accessories

Sprinkle salt on the surface of your cutting board to remove odors and stains before wiping it with half a lemon. When you combine the acidity of lemon with the abrasive action of salt, you get a clean cutting board free of stubborn stains.

3. Steam cleaning microwave

Combine the vinegar and water in a microwave-safe bowl and heat over high heat until the steam begins to rise, about a few minutes. You can easily remove dried food residues and grease from your microwave with a damp cloth and steam from a steam cleaner. This keeps your microwave clean and odor-free.

4. Neutralize odors.

To keep your refrigerator smelling fresh and absorbing odors, place a bowl of coffee grounds in it. Instead of using chemical air fresheners, you can use natural odor-absorbing coffee grounds to neutralize strong odors.

Tip no. 3: Descale your dishwasher

You can properly scrub your dishwasher by regularly using a vinegar and baking soda solution. Doing this will remove limescale and soap residue, keeping your dishwasher running smoothly and extending its lifespan.

Tip No. 4: Use ice cubes as a trash can liner

Throw some ice cubes and lemon peel into the garbage disposal, then wash and sharpen the blades with cold water. The citrus peels add a pleasant aroma and the ice cubes help remove dirt, keeping your disposal clean and odor-free.

5. Newspaper as stove grease

To prevent oil from splashing while frying or stir-frying, spread a layer of newspaper on the hob. To prevent it from sticking to the pan after cooking, simply throw away the newspaper for easy cleanup.

6. Toothbrush solution

Use an old toothbrush to clean grout, around kitchen appliances and faucet handles (all hard-to-reach places). Your kitchen will be spotless after using this brush as the small bristles can reach all the hard to reach places.

7. Vinegar to steam clean

After pouring the vinegar into an ovenproof container, place it in the oven. Vinegar creates steam when heated to high temperatures, which can loosen baked goods or grease. Then wipe down the inside of your oven for a spotless, mirror-like finish.

Make your own all-purpose cleaner

Mix equal parts water and vinegar in a spray bottle to make your own all-purpose cleaner. Whether you’re cleaning countertops, appliances or other surfaces in your kitchen, this all-purpose cleaner will keep them spotless and clean.

FAQs

1. Are lemons the only citrus fruits available in Hack 2?

Lime or orange juice works just as well as lemon for cleaning cutting boards.

2. As a Hack 5 user, how often should I thoroughly clean my dishwasher?

To keep your dishwasher working properly, it is advisable to clean it thoroughly once a month.

3. Vinegar safe to use on all surfaces?

4. Can coffee grounds be reused in Hack 4?

In fact, you can use coffee grounds over and over again as an odor absorber before throwing them away.

5. Hack 7 Are the risks of using newspapers on gas stoves acceptable?

While it is safe to use newspaper on an electric stove, avoid using it on a gas stove as it could cause a fire.

Conclusion

You don’t have to face insurmountable obstacles to keep your kitchen clean and organized. By adding these smart cleaning tips to your daily routine, you can effortlessly keep your kitchen spotless. Whether you’re a regular cleaner or not, these tips will change your kitchen cleaning habits and make cooking and entertaining a pleasure.
