Cleaning Tips

FROM THE BEST STRAIGHTEN-UP STRATEGIES TO THE RIGHT WAY TO WASH WINDOWS, WE SHARE OUR FAVORITE ADVICE

Rinse Your Plate

Cleaning plates is a tuff thing if its kept for some time un cleaned. I rinse my plate after dinner and have all my family members do the same and it makes washing plates so easy. It is a small and simple habit but makes a lot of trouble easier. I don’t like trying to wash dried food off of dishes, do you?

Cleaning the Oven

Does your oven get used every day?  Someday if you’re not using your oven, give it a quick spray of oven cleaner and keep it like that till the next day. Before you turn on your oven the next day, give it a quick wipe down. The baked on stuff comes off much easier than ever.

Cleaning the Microwave

Cleaning a microwave is easy. Fill up a cup of water and put it in there on high for a few minutes. The steam from the cup will loosen any stuck-on food, and then you can just wipe it away. It’s that simple.

Cleaning the Fridge

A fridge looks big and cleaning it looks even bigger. Follow my steps and the work will be a bit easier. First toss out any bad food. Then start with wiping down the top shelves and work down. Baking soda and water make a great cleaner and won’t leave your fridge smelling like
harsh cleanser. After you wipe out the crispers, line them with paper towels for easier cleaning next time. Cleaning the fridge was never this easy.

Cleaning your Bathroom

You can use lemon oil to shine the tiles of your bathroom. Lemon oil will also prevent mold and mildew. Use a false teeth bubbling tablet to avoid rings. Sometimes the problem with shower is that hard water gets build up there. Fill a plastic bag with vinegar and place it over shower head to remove hard water buildup. You can use alcohol to  shine bathroom faucets.

Clean a Mirror

You don’t have to buy glass cleaners and paper towels to clean your mirrors.  Just some vinegar and an old newspaper is all you need to keep your mirrors shining as new. Your house will look cleaner if the mirrors are clean.
HOW TO DESCALE AND CLEAN AN ELECTRIC KETTLE:

Steps for cleaning

Fill the kettle up to half or three quarters level with equal parts of water and white vinegar.
Bring the solution to a boil.
Turn off the kettle and remove its power cord plug from the wall outlet.
Let the vinegar-water mix sit in the kettle for 15-20 minutes. Now, throw the water away and rinse the equipment. You may have to rinse several times to make sure there is no trace of vinegar remaining in the kettle. You shall be amazed to find that you have gotten rid of the chunks of lime scale so easily.
Wipe the inside of the kettle with a clean cloth and leave it to dry completely.
After drying, you can again boil water in the kettle and discard it to remove possible remaining aftertaste left after cleaning.
In case there is a lingering vinegar smell then you can boil water in the kettle a few times. If there is a lot of scaling to be removed, you may use a stronger vinegar mixture and leave it in the kettle for an hour, or even overnight.
Plus, you can scrub the inside of the kettle with a non-metallic pad, carefully avoiding the heating element (built into the bottom).
There are certain manufacturers that explicitly warn against the use of vinegar for cleaning their products. In such cases, you can fill your kettle with water, squeeze a lemon in it and put slices of the same lemon in the solution.
Boil this water and leave it in the kettle for about an hour. Pour out the water and rinse the kettle. When the kettle has cooled, sprinkle a little baking soda at the bottom and wipe it with a clean piece of cloth. Finally, rinse it thoroughly with cold water.
Alternatively, you can put a teaspoon of baking soda and some water in the kettle and boil the solution to remove scaling. Citric acid is also considered good for getting rid of the kettle furring.
As for the cleaning the outside of the kettle, you can use any dishwashing liquid and wipe it with a clean damp cloth. While cleaning the outside, try not to scratch the finish, though. To make a stainless steel electric kettle shiny, put a little olive oil on a cloth and rub it on the outside of the kettle.
