What’s the toughest part to clean in your home? Especially after a big fat party is over? The kitchen, right? Well, it appears to be the most challenging area to clean from the whole household. Ladies would rather prefer dusting the furniture for hours over cleaning the kitchen appliances. For working women, a convenient option is to hire professional cleaners.

Nevertheless, here are few tips for cleaning your kitchen appliances within no time, without substantial exertion and even without spending cash on costly scrubbing products.

1. Blender:

Nearly every house has a blender now. Especially if your family loves to consume healthy and fresh juices and foods. While it makes your life easier with some quick blending and mixing, it is a quite tough task to clean it thoroughly. Although it is appealing to put the jug away after pouring out the contents, just add some water and a few drops of liquid detergent. Put it back on the mixer and turn on the appliance for nearly 30 seconds. Everything remaining on the insides of the jug will be effortlessly removed and a simple wash with water will complete the task.

2. Microwave oven:

Talking about cleaning kitchen appliances, nearly all housewives dislike the microwave oven. Why? Simply because they don’t know how to clean it easily and effortlessly. Put some damp paper towels in it, switch it on for some minutes and watch the magic! The vapours these towels produce will aid in removing the tints and the filth easily. Once the towels cool down, take them out of the oven and utilize them for dabbing the inner walls of the oven for getting rid of all grime. Have a foul smelling oven? Put a mug of water with half a cup of lime juice in it and turn on the oven for some minutes. Keep the mixture in there for additional ten minutes. Voila! Your oven will become odourless.

3. Coffee/Tea pot:

Remember the white exquisite tea/coffee pot you got as a present on last Christmas? As beautiful as it looks while placed on your coffee table, it will soon turn into brownish one unless you regularly clean this pot. Worry not! You only need three things to clean it: ice, salt and lemon. Fill the quarter of the pot with ice, then add some lemon juice and around two tablespoons of salt. Spin the pot enclosing this mixture for a few minutes and then wash it with plain water. That’s it!

4. Trash Can:

This is not essentially the most problematic, but certainly the most spiteful area of kitchen cleaning. The unpleasant smell with tough stains make the cleaning task a herculean one. Not anymore! Just use some ice cubes composed of water with equal parts of vinegar, rub these cubes in the trash can and you are done within a minute!

So, how do you clean your kitchen? Share with me your cleaning stories. I’d love to hear from you.
