Kitchen tips: Dishwasher*oven*refrigerator*microwave

Before going to bed or after breakfast, use clorox clean-up with bleach on your counters and exterior appliance surfaces as directed, so that your kitchen will be clean, fresh and ready for the next time you use it.

Offensive dishwasher odors can often be removed by simply running the wash cycle for 30 seconds to add water to the bottom of the washer. Then pour in 1 cup of baking soda and let it stand overnight, and restart it in the morning.

To tackle that brown-stained oven window, make a thick paste of water and baking soda. Apply to the inside of the window, leave for 10 to 15 minutes then scour with clean water.

Vanilla Va-voom
Vanilla extract makes a great deodorizer for the fridge. Pour a little on a cotton ball and put it in a small dish or cup where it won’t be disturbed.

Microwave Clean
To remove baked-on food more easily, simply fill a measuring cup full of water and sliced lemons and microwave until water boils, usually 3 minutes. The moisture makes old food easy to wipe clean.
