Here’s a quick and short cleaning guide for when you get up from the couch and decide to clean the kitchen. Trust us, cleaning the kitchen is a good idea, especially because you make the things you eat from there! A clean kitchen also has an effect psychologically, it might make you want to eat healthily, or be more eager to prepare better food and not to settle for junk.
Pots and Pans
For glass pans
Use hot water, baking soda, dish soap and a non-abrasive scouring pad. It’s the green side of the yellow and green sponge (you know the one).
For aluminum pots
Use water, cream of tartar, and scouring pad. White vinegar is optional, but it does get rid of leftover grease on the pots.
For cast iron skillets
Scrub off bits of food that were stuck with a paste made of baking soda and water. Rinse and wipe with a paper towel. If there’s still stubborn food, boiling water on the cast iron skillet loosens it up.
For non-stick pans
It’s easy-peasy: dishwashing soap, warm or hot water, and a non-abrasive sponge, the yellow side of the yellow and green sponge.
Make a baking soda and water paste. Use it to scrub the sink. After some vigorous scrubbing, rinse it with vinegar. It will bubble up and that’ll help remove water stains from stainless steel sinks.
Cleaning the oven is pretty much the same with sinks. But first, remove the trays and the oven racks. Make the world famous baking soda and water paste, and slather it in there. Let it sit overnight. Then take a wet rag and wipe off as much as you can.
There are tons of ways to clean stovetops. The easiest is probably by pouring boiling water on the dirty surface. It’s going to make the stubborn dirt loosen up and it will require minimal scrubbing when it dries.
However, you can also make a vinegar spray. Make one with 1 part vinegar and 2 parts water. Spray it on the grime, the acidity of the vinegar helps remove it. Also, like baking soda, vinegar is a pretty handy cleaner.
Never let your wooden utensils soak in water for extended periods of time. Wash it quickly with soap and water, and let it dry. If there are leftover flavors that have seeped in the wooden utensils, rub it with a lemon slice and let it dry completely.
First things first, remove all the trays and food inside the refrigerator. Wipe the sides with a mixture of warm water and dishwashing liquid. Make a baking soda and water paste for hard to remove stains. And to deodorize the fridge, place an open box of baking soda in there for 24 hours. If it doesn’t help, ground coffee on a plate is also an option.
