Refrigerator Cleaning

First, throw away food that has gone bad. Prepare this solution. 1 quarter cup of vinegar, 2 tablespoons of baking soda, 1 quart of water. Use the solution to wipe the walls and the trays. To remove the odors, pour some vanilla on a piece of cotton and place in the refrigerator. A dash of lemon extract can also produce a fresh scent.

Garbage Disposal Cleaning

Food often gets stuck or scraped into the garbage disposal. It is hard to clean and it can stink up your sink. Pouring baking soda and white vinegar help removing grease and food in the disposal. Pour them into the disposal until you see bubbles coming out. Leave it for ten minutes and then rinse with hot water. Next, put a few ice cubes in the disposal and turn it on. Rinse it with hot water one more time.

Stove Cleaning

Firstly, take out the stove burners and wash them with warm water and soap.

To remove the burnt food or stain from the surface, use baking soda. You can also make a paste using baking soda and water and use the paste to scrub the surface. Rinse with water afterward. Cleaning the stove regularly can prevent food stain at the surface which is hard to remove. Garlic Removal from Hands.

After making a nice dinner, the thing that you hate other than the dishes is the garlic odor on your hands. What you can do is to wear gloves when you handle garlic. If you do not want to wear gloves, to remove the odor, you can rub your hands with lemon, baking soda or salt and then wash your hands in cold water with soap.

Microwave and Oven Cleaning

To clean the outside of the microwave, use baking soda and water. To clean the inside of the microwave, mix 2 tablespoon of lemon juice with 2 cups of water. Put the mixture in a microwave safe bowl and microwave for approximately 3 minutes. Wipe the inside of the microwave with the mixture using sponge or paper towels.

Another quick and easy way to clean the inside is by using a dishcloth. Place a wet dishcloth in the center of the microwave. Heat it up for 30 seconds. The steam produced helps loosen the stain and use the cloth to wipe the inside.

To deodorize the microwave, heat a bowl of water with 3 to 4 slices of lemon in it for 30 seconds.
