We’ve got everything you need for your kitchen, from gleaming sinks to fresh-smelling trash disposals.
Your Refrigerator Needs a Clean
Consider just how many of these party leftovers would be stored in your fridge and whether or not you would like to keep them. Even in the refrigerator, sauce and cracker dressing won’t last over a couple of days. Be real; you’ll truly use the things you’ve spent a lot of time on making.
Remove any food remains from the storage drawers by rinsing them with soap and warm water and then wiping them down with a disinfectant. Open a package of sodium bicarbonate and leave it in the door overnight if the stench persists. Your refrigerator should be odor-free after using this method to remove unwanted odors. Apply cockroach killers thoroughly, if necessary, and clean them in the morning.
Clean Your Cookware
In the wake of a hectic holiday season, it’s important to give your kitchenware a thorough cleaning.
With a tablespoon of baking soda, you can clean any burnt-on stains from your steel goods. Most of the discoloration should dissolve within 20 minutes.
Hand wash wood utensils, cutting boards, and knives made of wood with mild detergent, and then add oil to restore their original shine. Make sure to let things sit overnight before wiping them off with a damp cloth.
Keeping drawers clean is important since they’re adjacent to the countertop, and breadcrumbs may easily get caught in them, so it’s always wise to do so occasionally. Make a mental inventory of all the equipment you own before taking them back to the cabinet. If you have items you only ever use sometimes, consider relocating them from of the cabinets you use most often. Bin or donate the items you don’t use. A hoarder’s life will only bring them more misery in the big scheme of things.
To begin, you’ll need to unload the washer and remove all of the racks and other items that could be detached from the appliance. Make sure that there is nothing attached to those parts by washing them in soap and warm water. Once you’ve done that, look for any debris in the openings in the rotating arm.
Half-fill the measuring jug with water and add the juice of one lemon. After that, place the citrus halves inside the jug and heat it for 3 minutes on maximum power in the oven. The door should be closed for an additional 5 minutes after the timer has expired in order to retain any remaining vapor. The stubborn marks are loosened by this method.
Retrieve the jug from the oven after 5 minutes and use a dishcloth to clean the interior of the oven. If any persistent stains remain, use a portion of the cloth dipped in lemon water to scrape them away.
Remember the turntables and the doorway, and don’t forget about them!
