We all neglect our microwaves now and then when cleaning. It’s easy to close the door and keep the mess hidden inside. If you’ve been neglecting yours, here is a quick and easy way to remove dirt, grime, and stuck-on food!
1 – Fill a microwave safe bowl with water about halfway full.
2 – Add a couple tablespoons of baking soda to the bowl of water.
3 – Put the bowl in the microwave and run the microwave for about three minutes (longer if it’s really dirty).
4 – Carefully (it will be hot!) remove the bowl from the microwave.
5 – Use a damp cloth to easily wipe away all of the grime and food stains.
This trick is so easy you can now clean your microwave at least once a week. Just run the microwave with the bowl of water while you’re doing other dishes and before you know it, your whole kitchen is clean!
What are some of your favorite kitchen cleaning hacks?
This past Monday marked the official first day of spring! It’s time to start refreshing our homes and thinking about spring cleaning. It can be a daunting task to get things deep-cleaned and organized, but using these tips should make the process smooth!
1 – The first thing you need to do is purge! Start getting rid of junk and unwanted items so you don’t waste time cleaning them, organizing or finding a new home for them when it’s time to start.
2 – If you have small children, find a busy activity for them to do or a place for them to go when it’s time to clean. You won’t want children making a mess in the middle of your spring cleaning.
3 – Get all of your supplies together early. Make sure you have rubber gloves, cleaning solutions, rags, mops etc ready to go so you don’t have to waste cleaning time with trips to the store.
4 – Make a playlist of all of your favorite upbeat songs. Press play when it’s time to put the gloves on and start cleaning. The music will make the time go by faster and it will keep you entertained and moving.
5 – Make a list and stick to it. Write down all of the rooms you want to clean and the order you want to clean them. Stick to the plan so you don’t get distracted. It’ll feel great to cross each task off the list as you complete it!
