Kitchen Cleaning Tips

Monday, March 4th, 2013

kitchen-cleaningUse a system of working left to right, from the top to the bottom, starting with the top of the refrigerator ( an often-missed surface). And after using stainless steel cleaner for your stainless steel sink, buff it with a dry cloth to really make it shine.

Water, mild detergent and a sponge is all you need to clean a microwave oven; avoid harsh or abrasive cleaning agents.

Unplug and pull the refrigerator / freezer out three to four times a year to clean underneath. Vacuum the front of the motor and coils to remove dust and dirt. Your refrigerator will work better longer.

A small cotton ball with a few drops of vanilla on it will eliminate odors when placed in your refrigerator.

Clean under sinks where mold is present with denatured alcohol and one-cup water. Check plumbing under sink periodically to look for leaks.


Wash the inside of refrigerators with a mild soap and water solution. If the refrigerator has a bad smell, add a teaspoon of lemon extract or a teaspoon of vanilla to the wash water.

Wipe off fingerprints on appliances. Remove any dishes from the sink or countertops.

Fingerprints – Buff surfaces with a clean cloth dampened with a neutral disinfectant. This will not only remove fingerprints, but childhood germs as well.
