Follow these tips and you will have a sparkling clean kitchen in no time!
The kitchen can be a difficult place to get clean, as grease seems to attract more dirt and makes it stick. Here are a few tips to get your kitchen clean, easily!
How to clean your microwave
Cleaning the inside of your microwave is simple- just fill a jug with water, place in the microwave, and run the microwave for a few minutes. Let the water boil, and leave the steam to coat the inside of the microwave for a few minutes. Wipe with a damp cloth.
Sticky cupboard doors? No problem!
This is one of my least favourite tasks. Handles get greasy and dirty from use, and the dirt can sneak up on you. They are also so fiddly to clean. So what’s the best way? A 1:1 white vinegar/ water mix, in a spray bottle with a bit of dishwashing liquid. If the stains are really stuck on, make a paste of baking soda and oil and scrub. Alternately, use of the Dream Eco surface cleaner on a cloth and wipe on. This range also offers a choice of scents from essential oils, so your home will always smell amazing.
The top of cupboards attract a lot of dust and dirt. Spray on the vinegar solution, sprinkle with baking soda, let sit for a while, and then use an old credit card to scrape the dirt off. Magic!
Sink and tap calcium build-ups
These are surprisingly easy to clean without scrubbing. Soak a towel in vinegar, place the towel over the stained area, and leave for a few hours. Similarly, put vinegar in a plastic bag and tie around a tap to let the acid dissolve build-ups and deposits. Not only will it sparkle, but the water will flow freely from the tap again.
Stainless steel surfaces
They may look good, but they collect sticky fingerprints easily! Use some of Dream Eco Products detergent with warm soapy water to fix this- wipe with a microfiber cloth, easy! The dishwashing liquid is amazing on stainless steel.
Don’t scrub pots with burnt-on food
Don’t needlessly scrub (unless you want an arm workout!). Put the pot back on the stove, with enough water to cover all the burnt parts. Simmer on a low heat with baking soda, or vinegar, or dishwashing liquid.
The inside of your fridge is tricky to get clean, with crevices and corners. Remove everything from the fridge. The shelves are easiest to wash with warm soapy water in the sink. The inside can be washed with warm soapy water too. If the drain at the back is blocked, use a skewer to clear (it’s amazing how peas manage to get stuck in there!). Use a toothbrush to get the difficult corners clean.
