Can tea really keep my stove gunk free?
Joe Green, author of “Clean it, Fix it, Eat it” says it can. Brew a very strong cup of tea. Let it cool and wipe down the stove top and any place where grease or food spatters. There is something in the tea that keeps grease and food from sticking to the stove. Just wipe clean every time. (https://www.goodreads.com )
I cannot live without my crock pot, but what a job to clean! Well, let me tell you what I found in the aisle with the aluminum and plastic wrap. They make disposable slow cooker liners. You can cook anything in these liners and just throw them away leaving no messy crock pot to clean.
Salt will stop splatters
This is an old trick my grandmother taught me. I do not know why it works it just does. Add a pinch or two to the cooking oil. She said the salt weights the cooking oil down when it heats up. Salt also puts out grease fires.
Appliances free of smudges
It does not matter if the appliances are stainless steel or not, lemon oil will keep all appliances smudge proof. I use lemon oil on everything in the kitchen but the stove and the floor. Lemon keeps the kitchen smelling fresh. Do you have a smoker in the home? Wipe a few drops of lemon oil in the ashtray.
Use the exhaust fan when cooking
Grease is attracted to moisture and humidity. By using the exhaust fan it is dehumidifying the air around the stove. Be sure to change or at least clean the filter about once a month.
Okay, the kitchen does not clean its self, but I have found these simple tips do make cleaning the kitchen a lot less work. There really are a lot of cleaning tips that make house cleaning so much easier. (https://www.apartmenttherapy.com )
