The kitchen is generally a busy room in the house, with meals being prepared and people running in and out to get drinks, go through into the garden and have a chit chat. It’s hard to keep it clean for long and just as you clean up, it can seem to get messy again in an instant!
The same goes for all the kitchen appliances, with them being used daily stains can build up. Of course with life running by at a million miles an hour, you may not have time to clean every item after every use and buying cleaning products can get expensive.
Luckily there are a few tricks you can use to clean your appliances with products you may already have in the cupboard, which will still get a sparkling finish. Get a professional house cleaner on a regular basis to shoulder the cleaning load, who’ll help you fight the build up of grime!
Stove hotplates will regularly get spillages on them, when pans boil over or food is stuck to the bottom of a saucepan. If you have a lot of burned on food debris, initially wash down the hot plate with luke warm water and a dishwashing detergent. Make a thick paste of baking soda and water in a bowel then use it to coat the hot plates. Leave for up to 20 minutes. The food particles should have softened and you can scrub them off with a soft brush or toothbrush.
The fridge can get all sorts of food gunk and liquids stuck to it and it can seem an almighty job that usually gets avoided! The best option would be to get a domestic cleaner to take on the task, but another great option is to mix a little vanilla essence with water and wipe the fridge down. This leaves a lovely smell and gets a super shiny finish. Avoid using any cleaning sprays with toxic chemicals inside that’ll be near to your food possibly causing contamination.
Microwaves can get all manner of food splattered all over their insides and this can build up quickly if you use it a lot or have a large family. A great tip is to fill a bowl with boiling water, add a few squeezes of lemon juice into it and then microwave that for 2 minutes. Food debris can then be wiped away in a jiffy!
A professional domestic cleaner can help you cleaning out your whole oven, but in between major cleans you can use this tip to get the doors fresh again. Soak a paper towel in brown vinegar and wipe the glass of the oven door all over. Leave it for up to an hour, then wipe it dry with another paper towel or a soft, dry cloth for a sparkling sheen.
