As a mom, I always love to research tips on how to save time. Cleaning hacks is one of them. The first step of having a completely clean house is having a clean kitchen. Cleaning the kitchen goes a long way.
Let us start with small kitchen appliances
such as the oven.
How Often Should You Clean the Oven?
Any stucked dirt can affect the taste of the dish that you cook in the oven. How does it look? Do you notice crust or residue on the bottom? Is it greasy? Is there a distinct smell? If the answer is yes, then its time to clean the oven.
What Materials Do You Need to Clean the Oven?
- Baking Soda, White Vinegar, and Water are the most popular DIY cleaning tools you need.
Mix one-half cup of baking soda with water to create a paste and spread the paste all over the bottom of the oven, the sidewalls, and the inside of the glass oven door.
Leave the mixture for a minimum of two hours. If not in a rush, it is better to leave it overnight. Use a spray bottle and fill it half with water and a half with white vinegar and spray it all over the baking soda.
This will cause a foamy watery reaction to remove the burnt-on food stains from the oven. Leaving it for 30 minutes.
If needed, use a rubber spatula and rag to remove the baking soda mixture. Finish the cleaning method by wiping it off with a damp cloth.
- Clean Your Oven Racks in The Bath
Clean it by soaking the racks in a hot bath with a normal dishwashing tab. It will soften hardened dirt and make it much easier to wipe clean the metal.
- Use an Old Toothbrush!
Scrub off concentrated marks and lather up with an old toothbrush.
Soak it for 1-2 hours if the oven is mildly dirty then rinse it well.
Having a clean oven helps you to not just have delicious food but to make it last longer. No one wants food to go to waste.
Additional deeper cleaning tasks:
Aside from oven cleaning, declutter your kitchen. Include exterior cabinet door cleaning, pantry cleaning, and cleaning your kitchen appliances.
Remember that you need to store food wisely. Apply the First In, First Out Rule by identifying the expiration dates. Storing food inside airtight containers will keep them fresh and safe. It can also prevent bad bacteria and fungi from growing. Proper maintenance and care for refrigerators and freezers are also important to prevent cross-contamination of bad bacteria in food.
