We all have those stubborn hard to clean items, or simply wish there was an easier way to do something. We have learned a few tricks over the years.

Greasy stove hoodClean greasy grime off of your oven hoods using mineral oil or vegetable oil. Put a couple of drops of oil on a paper towel, wipe the paper towel over the greasy surface, and watch that gunk come right off! Rinse with warm water.

Baking soda and vinegar

Use vegetable oil and baking soda to make a paste and scrub the cabinet doors with a toothbrush or small scrub brush. Wipe down with warm water and a towel for a new clean look.

Lemonade Kool Aid

Clean the lime scale and iron off of your dishwasher. Run an empty cycle with lemonade Kool-Aid  (in the detergent cup). It will clean lime deposits and iron stains and make your dishwasher sparkle without the expense of pricey cleaners.

Cup of water

Rather than scrub the stuck on food out of your microwave, steam clean your microwave. Add 1 cup of hot water. Microwave it for 10 minutes. Then simply wipe clean.

newspaper and vegetables

Use newspaper as refrigerator drawer liners. Newspapers absorb odor from vegetables and keep your refrigerator from smelling like other foods. The newspapers will also soak up any juices that may find its way to the bottom of the drawers.

burnt pan

Soak a dryer sheet or two in your tough to clean pans and baking sheets to remove baked-on food. Just place a dryer sheet in your pan and submerge with warm water. Let the pan sit overnight, resume cleaning the next morning with far less scrubbing.

newspaper in trash canSave all of your old newspapers rather than throw them out. Place your old newspapers in the bottom of your trash cans to absorb fluid and juices that may leak to the bottom of your trash bag. The newspaper will also absorb odors that may come from your trash cans.

cutting boardDo you wish you had just a bit more counter space at times? Pull out one of your kitchen drawers and place your cutting board on top. This will fix your problem temporarily.

Mio bottle with no label

Recycle a Mio bottle for salad dressing, soy sauce, and more. Peel off the label, pop the top, wash, and fill. It is a great size to pop into a lunch box without a leaky mess.
