Kitchen Cleaning Tips

Only use a hint of dish soap and warm water to clean your refrigerator. Store a box of opened baking soda in the back corner and label it with the date using a black sharpie. The box should be replaced every 30-50 days.

Hot water and dish soap will perform wonders on your kitchen cabinets. Always use a clean sponge or cloth, and make sure to not get your cabinets completely saturated.

Each time you take the trash out, before replacing your trashcan with a clean liner, spray it down with some Lysol. It will not only leave a fresh, clean scent, but it will also disinfect.

Clean your dish drainer once every two months by either washing it in the dishwasher (only if dishwasher safe), or letting it soak in the sink with hot water and a few drops of bleach (be sure to rinse well).

Bathroom Cleaning Tips

Wash your bath rugs and your shower curtain at least once a month on a gentle cycle in your washing machine using very little to no detergent. If possible, hang them out to dry or put them in the dryer on a low setting, checking it every 3-4 minutes to make sure the materials do not melt.

To have a virtually soap scum-free shower - simply fill a spray bottle with 75% water and 25% bleach. After your shower, spray the walls and shower curtain down each time and be sure to close the curtain so that mold does not grow.

Want a great-looking wash basin all the time, no matter how many people are using hairspray, toothpaste, and mouthwash each day? Keep some pre-moistened wipes handy (usually right inside the cabinet under your vanity) and wipe down your sink & vanity once a night before going to bed. That 30 seconds will make a world of difference.
