Kitchen Cleaning Tips

Tip 1:

Buffing a marble table top with car polish leaves a thin, invisible film that helps reduce the risk of stains.

Tip 2:

To clean a microwave oven, add four tablespoons of lemon juice to one cup of water in a microwave-safe bowl. Boil for five minutes in the microwave, allowing the steam to condense on the inside walls of the oven. Then wipe them with a soft cloth

Tip 3:

To remove fingerprints from stainless-steel appliances, place a small amount of baby oil on a napkin and wipe the affected areas. The fingerprints will just wipe away.

Tip 4:

Kitchen floors should be cleaned by using the THREE WET MOP SYSTEM. The first mop should soak the floor. The second mop should be to pick up most of the water from the first mop and the third mop should be to dry it off. Please note: this method should only be attempted on tiled floors and one piece vinyl and not wooden or vinyl tiles.

Tip 5:

Spray a bleach solution onto your sink and let it sit for a few minutes then rinse well then dry it off and if you want that extra shine, use a glass cleaner to polish it. Ensure bleach solution does not go onto bench tops because it could damage it.

Tip 6:

Your stove should be cleaned by an expert. The chemicals and solutions generally used are caustic. For best results a specialist will often pull it apart to clean which will leave your stove/oven looking almost new. Your specialist will also clean your kitchen vent or range hood.

Tip 7:

For the refrigerator, you should wipe the doors and edges and on top of refrigerator with a cloth dampened with mild dishwashing liquid and water. Wipe the interior with a mix of 2 tablespoons baking soda and 1 litre of hot water. Rinse with a damp cloth, and then dry with a clean towel. This will clean as well as help to eliminate odours. Do not use soap or detergent, because they can leave behind a scent the food will absorb. Keep a small jar (with the lid off) of baking soda in the fridge to absorb excess moisture.
