Like most of us, I clean the kitchen, which is a monumental undertaking. Soap and water on a sponge can be used for the stovetop along with stovetop cleaner, and you can also use this on counters without making a mess. I clean my kitchen at least every weekend. Cleaning the kitchen is necessary to do at least once a week anyhow.
Cleaning the blender
I put the blender in the dishwasher and then I work on using a knife or fork to remove any flour stuck inside, leftover for making dough. Adding water into the blender and 1 teaspoon of dish washing liquid, then letting it work on the blender when the blender is turned on and pulsing it 10 times is something I hadn’t thought of. Then the mixture is disposed of in the sink.
I use Drano on the clogged drains. Baking soda and vinegar is one natural solution to this problem. There is no need for Drano at that point. Natural solutions such as baking soda and vinegar work well on clogged drains because cleaning begins with one-cup baking soda poured into the drain, and then 1 cup of vinegar. You finish up by rinsing the drain with hot water.
Cleaning a Stove Hood Filter
This is something I didn’t even know to clean. I have a microwave above my stove. Stove hood filters need to be cleaned every six months and I haven’t cleaned mine yet. I don’t think I know how to remove it on top of that. You clean the filter by putting it in a casserole dish and using liquid soap that you let it soak for 10 to 15 minutes, using a scrub brush to remove grease or food particles. Then you rinse yorj filter with warm water.
How to Clean a Toaster
I don’t use my toaster but some of you do. Toasters can get pretty sticky with dirt. It is not just the outside of the toaster you have to clean. Toasters collect crumbs and burnt bread, which can be a fire hazard. Cleaning this mess however is easy, because you have to clean your toaster once a month. You use white vinegar on the outside and then you clean the crumb drawer by turning the toaster over. A toaster can become a fire hazard if you don’t clean it once a month.
