We know cleaning your kitchen is no fun, especially when it comes to all that grease & dirt on your stove and oven that is hard to come off. Well here are some tips and hacks to make your kitchen cleaning if not fun but definitely easy.
Use Ammonia to clean the meshes of your stove burners
The stove burners are most vulnerable to oil and dirt, whenever your utensils dribble oil and food, everything accumulates around the meshes of your stove burners. They get flamed and burned to turn into a repugnant layer, giving you a hard time cleaning them. Don’t scrub. Find a large Ziploc bag; place a mesh in it, then add 1/4 cup of ammonia and seal it up. Leave it for a night; the condensation of a large amount of gas from ammonia inside the bag will dissolve all the oily dirt on the burners. Next day, clean the burners with a sponge and, it’s done.
Clean your oven using baking soda
Baking soda is a multi-purpose ingredient, apart from baking cakes and bread, it comes handy as a mouthwash, neutralize fridge odor, and is a cheap and effective cleaner for your kitchen appliances. Take three spoons of vinegar; add few drops of dishwashing liquid, and baking soda to make a thick paste. Apply the paste on the messy surface of the oven, let the baking soda do its job for ten minutes, and rinse it with a scrubber. It will dissolve the stubborn grease and dirt nicely.
