Kitchen Cleaning Tips

It is more pleasant to cook in a clean kitchen. And cooking in a clean kitchen is important, because your family will be safe from dangerous germs that could affect their health. Here are some great tips for keeping your kitchen clean.
If your kitchen is organized in the first place, it will be much easier for you and anyone else that cooks in your kitchen to find the tools they need and to put them away. If the measuring cups always hang from the same hook or go in the same drawer, you will know right where they are when you want to bake that delicious batch of chocolate chip cookies.
Take a few minutes every day to clean the clutter out of the kitchen. If you take a few minutes to pick up your kitchen every day, clutter won’t take over your kitchen. Plus, your kitchen tools and utensils will be stored in appropriate places, and make cooking easier and more pleasant for everyone.
One way to keep the kitchen looking clean is to put clean dishes in cupboards right away. In that way you can keep dirty dishes rinsed and stored in the dishwasher until is time to wash dishes. The dirty dishes are out of sight, no suspicious smells linger in the kitchen, and when the dishwasher is full, the dishes can be washed. Your kitchen still looks great even if you have unwashed dishes. If you get in the habit of starting the dishwasher at night and emptying it in the morning, you can have clean dishes when you need them and a clean, empty sink all of the time.
Have a good supply of paper towels around for quick clean ups in the kitchen. Many people like to use washcloths and sponges when they clean their kitchen. These articles can contain and spread germs. Paper can be recycled, so if you buy paper towels made from recycled materials, you don’t have to worry about polluting the environment by adding to the amount of material in your local landfill, as well.
A great solution for cleaning your microwave is lemon juice or vinegar. Take 2 tablespoons of lemon juice or vinegar and mix it with 4 cups of water in a microwave safe bowl. Microwave the solution and bowl on high power for three minutes, and wipe your microwave clean.
If your sink drain is moving slowly, pour ½ cup of baking powder down the drain. Then pour ½ cup of white vinegar down the drain. After this combination has had a chance to fizz in the sink drain for a while, pour at least 8 cups of boiling water down the drain to rinse it out.
If your kitchen faucet has mineral or lime deposits on it, you can remove them easily using common household products. Soak paper towels in white vinegar, then wrap these soaked towels around the faucet. The towels sit on the faucet for about an hour. Your faucets will be easy to clean and sparkle.
