The kitchen itself requires regular cleaning but so do glasses, pans, and other items stored within it. In addition, food from the kitchen can create stains or spots in other areas of the home. Though the worst issues may need to be addressed by a cleaning service, the average person can usually handle the rest. Read the cleaning tips for the kitchen below:
To remove a coffee spill from a rug or fabric, dip a clean, white cloth into one beaten egg yolk. Rub this yolk into the stain and then rinse the area using clean water. Applying denatured alcohol and then rinsing the area with water is another effective technique. Mild detergent and water, followed by blotting and an equal solution of white vinegar and water, then blotting, may also remove the stain.
Glass, walls, floors, stoves, and refrigerators can be cleaned with ¼ cup of automatic dishwasher detergent dissolved in a gallon of extremely hot water. First, test the area to determine whether it is colorfast. After this solution is applied while wearing rubber gloves, the spot should be wiped with a dry cloth.
To wash stemware, hold its base, vigorously pump it into hot, soapy water, and then quickly place it in clear, hot water. Dry the stemware upside down on a towel. Adding a bit of borax or vinegar to the water used for rinsing will make the glasses streak-free and very shiny. If hard water stains accumulate on glasses, dip a scouring pad in vinegar and use it to rub the spots.
If the dishwasher drains through the garbage disposal, turn on the disposal when the dishwasher is running. This will provide it with a nice cleaning. If soap film accumulates in the dishwasher, add a cup of white vinegar to the detergent compartment and run it through an entire washing cycle in an empty dishwasher.
