Getting your kitchen spic and span doesn’t have to take you the whole day! There are many useful tips that can help you have your kitchen spotless in no time. So if you are looking to kick your kitchen cleaning up a notch — try these out of the box hacks!

Clean Your Sponges

Believe it or not, your regular kitchen sponge is a breeding ground for bacteria, mold, and yeast. Thankfully — it’s an easy fix. Non-metal sponges are easily cleanable. Place your wet sponge in your microwave for no more than two minutes every other day or so. Remember to allow proper cooling time before retrieving it.

Get Rid Of Food Odors

Did you just finish a delicious dinner but can’t get rid of the not so pleasant smell? This hack will leave your home smelling fresh in no time! Pour two little caps of vanilla into a mug and place in the oven at 300 degrees for one hour. Don’t forget to let it properly cool before removing.

Clean Under The Fridge With Ease

Do you often put off cleaning under your fridge because it’s such a hassle? Well, there is a quick and easy way to keep the dust and food particles from piling up, and it only requires a handle and some old pantyhose! Cover a mop or broom handle with the pair of pantyhose and drag it from side to side under the fridge to push the dust and dirt into a pile. Make sure that the handle is angled towards you and once you have your collection, vacuum or sweep it up. If your condenser coils are located under your fridge, don’t forget to clean these regularly as well. Dirty coils can affect the efficiency of your fridge and waste energy.
