3 Kitchen Cleaning Hacks For Your Home

Run a spatula through the dishwasher drain.

Running a spatula through the drain with soapy water in the sink can help dislodge buildup.

Baked on food can be scraped off with a mallet.

You can also lay a length of plastic wrap ontop of the food, and tap on it with gentle pressure.

Clean the dishwasher with a used lemon.

Run a lemon through your dishwasher to help absorb odors.

You can cut a lemon in half, and run it through the dishwasher, or put lemon slices in a mesh bag, and run them through the washer. Lemon is a natural cleaner and deodorizer.

Clogged Kitchen Sinks

Your kitchen sink is your go-to area in your home. It's always in frequent use and has a lot of potential mess. A kitchen sink clogged with food particles can be hard to clean.

Step 1

To unclog your kitchen sink, first get a mixture of two parts baking soda and one part vinegar. Then dump the baking soda-vinegar powder into the sink. If you have a garbage disposal, turn it on and let the powder sink down into the disposal.

Baking soda and vinegar neutralize each other, so the clog should loosen and begin to clear.

Step 2

If the baking soda-vinegar trick does not work, there are two situations that could have caused the clog. The clog either happened in the garbage disposal or in the drain pipe.

To unclog your kitchen sink from the garbage disposal side, remove as much of the clog as you can by plunging a hand down the garbage disposal and turning the disposal on. Then run the garbage disposal for a few more seconds to clear the drain pipe.

If the kitchen sink clog is in the drain pipe, you need to flip the stop control off, and let the water flow out. Then, run a snake down the drain pipe to clear the area.

How To Efficiently Clean a Dishwasher

Allow the dishwasher to clean overnight. Before you go to bed at night, dump out the silverware tray.

Turn the dial to the wash cycle of choice, and fill the basin of the dishwasher with hot, soapy water. This will allow the dishwasher to clean itself overnight.

Before you do this, make sure the dishwasher is empty and unplugged from the wall.

Always clean the strainer before your next load. If you see any stuck-on food particles, run some hot water with a drop or two of dishwashing liquid through the strainer.

Don’t put food in the dishwasher. Over time, the water and heat from the dishwasher can grow mold and harbor bacteria.

Cleaning a dishwasher is an easy thing to do. Just wipe the interior regularly with a mild soap dissolved in hot water.

Replace the filter once a year.

Clean your dishwasher every six months, both inside and out. To do this, run it on the rinse cycle with a two cups of vinegar and one cup of baking soda.

This will clean your dishwasher without the use of harsh chemicals.

What About The Kitchen Faucet?

Your kitchen faucet is a great place to start your kitchen cleaning. This is where you wash your hands, prepare food, and wash dishes and utensils.

Did you know that your kitchen faucet can harbor harmful bacteria? Luckily, protecting your family from harmful bacteria is easy if you invest in a high quality insulated, stainless steel faucet.

Stainless steel not only protects your family from harmful bacteria, but it also helps prevent growth of mold.

The number one major drawback of most faucet styles is the drain and sprayer are integral to the faucet.

"Sprayer" style kitchen faucets have a higher rate of associated waterborne illness than other styles of faucet.

Tap water from sprayer style faucets can spray up to 12 inches into the air.

This may seem like harmless water, but spray lightly misted tap water into a sink for five minutes.

One misted spray of water is enough to spread germs all over your kitchen sink. This includes the counter, faucet handle, refrigerator handle, and nearby cabinets.

The already contaminated kitchen sink becomes a breeding ground for bacteria from the sprayer.

Avoid the problem altogether by choosing the Dovetail Single Handle Faucet. You’ll receive a free instant rebate when you install this faucet in your kitchen.
