Cleaning the kitchen is obligatory for every housewife. But as much as this has become a routine of everyday life, it is inevitable for each of us to miss some of the mandatory cleaning places. Here are the places in the kitchen we forget to clean:
The oven bars
After each cooking, there remain a lot of burnt residue that needs to be cleaned in time.
Microwave oven cleaning
Although the microwave oven is the most used kitchen appliance, we don’t maintain it regularly. If we have heated a meal that has splashed the microwave oven walls, immediately take a napkin or kitchen paper and wipe the walls. If you are going to perform detailed microwave oven cleaning procedure, do it with natural cleaning methods. All you should do is fill half a bowl with lemon juice and heat it in the microwave oven for 7 minutes. Don’t open the microwave oven for 20 more minutes. Then take a dry cloth and wipe the oven walls. You should perform this oven cleaning procedure every time you see your microwave oven is dirty.
You may heat vinegar in a bowl and add few drops of lemon to perform super fast oven cleaning procedure. Again heat the vinegar till it starts boiling. Its vapors will cover the walls of the microwave oven and will speed up the process of removing greasy remains.
There are also specialized appliances, such as water-jets and hand-made steam cleaners, which allow you to clean and pollute places or objects without using chemicals. You can purchase one or rent just for several hours till you clean your oven and microwave oven.
If you want to save time, you can schedule professional cleaning service. The expert cleaners will take care for your microwave oven and oven as well. They know different methods how to cope with stubborn stains and are equipped with powerful equipment.
Cleaning oven hobs
One of the most important duties of every housewife is oven cleaning and regular washing of the oven hobs. If you don’t have special preparation for oven cleaning or if you are allergic to chemical cleaners, remember some tricks of cleansing - yet there were not preparations for everything at one time, right?
You may use a mixture of baking soda and water. You can clean both inside and outside of the oven with this mixture. It will remove greasy stains incredibly easy!
Coffee maker and coffee grinder
The kitchen is full of appliances. The most commonly used, besides the microwave oven, are the coffee maker and coffee grinder. Each of these appliances is extremely blooming for bacterial propagation, as it is warming up when making coffee, creating a growth-friendly environment. One of the best tools to clean the coffee maker and coffee grinder is a sponge soaked in vinegar.
Handles of appliances and doors
These are some of the most commonly touched surfaces in the home and are full of bacteria and microorganisms. All handles - doors, cupboards, refrigerator, dishwasher, microwave, should be wiped daily.
The kitchen sink channel
That's where all the dirt comes out. It is therefore best to clean it, if not daily, at least once on every few days.
One of the most frequently forgotten cleaning areas in the kitchen is the dishwasher seals, where millions of bacteria are collected. Wash the dishwashing well at least once a week, especially if it is used intensively. The best cleaning solution is that of 1 part of vinegar and 1 part of water. Mix them in a spray bottle and spray the contaminated areas, then rinse and allow to dry completely.
It is the ideal area for spreading bacteria. Residues of food on it collect microorganisms and carry an unpleasant odor. The basket is washed every week or more often.
After you have cleaned all these places, you may use the warm weather to repaint the walls of the kitchen. Fresh colors, such as green, yellow and orange, are suitable for the room, where we spend most of our time. White is the most used color in the kitchen, but it often creates: associations with a hospital setting. Therefore, our recommendation is to use a light beige or other delicate light shade. Red is probably too bright color but it is one of the most recommended colors for kitchen.
If you want to spend more pleasant time in your kitchen, besides keeping all your kitchen appliances in perfect condition, you should place some fresh plants in the room. They will refresh the air and will transform the whole look of the kitchen.
