A place where we cook and wash dishes tends to bring us to despair when faced with the task to clean it thoroughly. The good news is that with the tricks presented here everything will pass much more easily, quickly and efficiently. Here are a few effective methods:

The oven cleans itself while you sleep

Each housewife happened to wish for one small homemade fairy to clean the house, while she rests. The truth is that you can arrange something similar at least with regards to the terrible solid sediments in the oven.
Here’s the secret: Pour into a bowl half cup ammonia. Put it in the oven, but only if it is completely cold! Leave it overnight. Vapours will do the magic and in the morning you will just have to make a minimal effort to wipe the dirt and grime from the oven.

Cleaning the grill

Peel an onion, cut it into two equal parts and stick a fork in the narrowest part of the one- half. With this gadget rub the grate of the already heated grill. In addition to cleaning it, the exercise with the onion will ensure an extra delicious scent for the next use of the grill.

Adhering dirt on kitchen cabinets

The recipe is quite simple: mix one part vegetable oil and 2 parts baking soda, stir well and you’re done. Use a sponge or kitchen towel to rub the surfaces of the cabinets and on corners and other special and hard to reach areas can use a toothbrush.

There is magic for cleaning the microwave too

Here you can also save intensive scrubbing. Wet a household sponge thoroughly, put it in the microwave and run it for 2 minutes to a high degree. The released steam will do wonders with the layered dirt. You will then only need to put your kitchen glove and wipe with a sponge the inside of the microwave. Attention: The kitchen glove is mandatory since the sponge will be really hot!

Wooden cutting boards

To clean successfully all streaks from the wooden cutting boards just need to cut in two halves one lemon and rub the surface of the board (holding the bark and wet the board with the juice from the core). Then cover the embrocated with lemon juice board with coarse salt, wait 10-15min. Once the time expires take back the half of the lemon and with its help rub the salt well on the board.

Plastic cutting boards

Cutting boards can harbour bacteria and stains, especially after handling raw meat and colourful vegetables. And for them, there is a way of effective cleaning. Plug the sink and cover the bottom with 2-3 fingers water. Pour a generous amount of bleach- about 1 cup. Soak the plastic boards in this solution and leave them there for about an hour. Then drain the water from the sink and rinse them thoroughly.

Residues from cheese on the grater

Use the already dirty equipment to grate raw potato. Its inherent hardiness combined with oxalic acid will remove the adhering residue of milk solids.

Burned pots and pans

Cover the container with water and pour a cup of white vinegar then put it on the stove and wait for the liquid to boil. Add 2 tablespoons of baking soda, drain the pan and you will be able without difficulty to rub it.

Glass baking trays

Mash a ball of aluminium foil, add dishwashing detergent and rub.

Whitish “diaper” on glasses

Surely you happened to notice something like whitish coating on the supposedly washed glasses (especially if you use dishwashing machine). It is unpleasant, but you can easily solve the problem. Soak a paper towel in vinegar, squeeze the excess liquid and then wipe the glass. After such treatment, your glasses will be crystal clear.

Cleaning the kitchen stove

Do not flood it with water! You only need to wipe it with a damp cloth and if adhering residues from cooking are too stubborn, sprinkle with baking soda, wait 10 minutes and then apply the ‘therapy’ with the damp cloth.

Cleaning the coffee or spice mill

To get rid of the residual scents after use, you can use the mill for crushing raw rice, hard bread or sugar. Each of these 3 proposals will do a great job.

Forms for baking muffins

The holes are small so the task of washing can be quite tedious. It will be easier if you use a brush for baby bottles.


By incorporating these simple and natural cleaning tricks into your routine, you can maintain a clean, fresh, and inviting kitchen with minimal effort. Happy cleaning!
