44 Brilliant Cleaning Tricks To Keep Your Home Sparkling Clean
Cleaning an oven
Mix a paste of 1 cup baking soda, 1 tablespoon of liquid dish soap, and water. The paste should resemble a thick pancake dough. Spread the mixture evenly over the dirty areas, and let it sit for 15 minutes before wiping dry.
Cleaning stove burners
Mix baking soda with your dish soap and water to make a thick paste. Apply the resulting mixture onto the burners, and let it sit for 15-20 minutes. Then wipe with a soft damp cloth and dry thoroughly.
Cleaning a gas stove
In a bowl, mix some baking soda with enough water and hydrogen peroxide to make a paste. Spread this cleaning solution around the stovetop and leave for 5-10 minutes. Use a clean dry sponge or towel to wipe off the cleaning mixture. Ta-da! Your gas stove is sparkling clean!
Cleaning an oven door
If your oven door is grimy, sprinkle some baking soda on the surface and cover it with a damp cloth soaked in soapy water. Leave for 15 minutes, then wipe the area with the same towel in a circular motion.
Getting rid of grease stains
Put a couple of drops of mineral oil on a paper towel. Wipe the paper towel over the dirty surface, and watch the oil splatters come right off. When you have finished cleaning, simply wipe down the surfaces one more time with a clean cloth or a new paper towel.
