Having the whole family over for the holidays?
Don’t feel like your kitchen is clean enough?
Here are some great hacks for each part of your kitchen!
To start you will need borax.
Fill the sink with hot water and add 1/4 cup borax.
Put the grease filled filter in the sink for 15 minutes.
With gloves on, go and swish the filters around in the water to loosen up the remaining grease. You can also use an old rag or some paper towel to wipe off any leftover grease from the corners.
Rinse once more under hot water. Repeat if necessary.

***When opening bag use gloves and turn head away from the bag.
- Baking soda
- Dish soap
- Extreme Scrub Scour Pad
- Damp Rag
- Dry microfiber cloth
Combine 1 cup baking soda, 1 tablespoon of dish soap and slowly add water in a bowl to create a paste-like consistency. With a larger or dirtier oven, you may double the ingredients.
With gloves on, use your hands to evenly spread the mixture all over your oven. This is safe to use on the glass door as well.
Leave oven open to prevent dripping and let sit for 15 minutes.
Wet your scrub pad and scrub around the oven. Rinse pad when necessary in the sink and continue to scrub oven.
Once the oven is scrubbed take a wet rag to wipe off any residue.
To dry oven use a dry microfiber rag to wipe completely. This will give your oven a nice clean shine!
Thought we forgot about your fridge? The hardest working and most important appliance in your household? Your precious Bosch Benchmark B36BT830NS, SAMSUNG RF28M9580SR, KITCHENAID KRFC704FBS, MIELE MasterCool Series KF1903SF or MIELE MasterCool Series KF1903SF? Nope! Here are some special hacks for that special appliance.
Every day you should be wiping up any spills, throwing out expired foods, and placing anything that has the chance of leaking on a plate to prevent them from leaving a nasty smell.
Every Week you should wipe down the doors, handles, and top of your fridge with a damp microfiber cloth with mild dish soap and water. If you have a stainless steel fridge use a store brand of stainless-steel cleaner.
Every month empty out your fridge so you can clean those shelves. Take 2 tablespoons of baking soda and 1 quart of hot water. Wipe down with a damp cloth and then dry with a clean towel. The baking soda will also help get rid of any odors. Soap and detergent are not safe to use because your food can absorb the scent and chemicals.
