Prevention in the Kitchen

kitchen hacks

• Make potholders & tablecloths unstainable: Spray new potholders & tablecloths with spray starch. This will prevent greasy stains and keep them looking like new. Reapply starch after laundering.

• Prevent refrigerator odors: Place an uncovered cup of baking soda in the refrigerator. Replace ever three months.

• Make stainless-steel surfaces spot-resistant: After cleaning and drying (white vinegar works well) Polish stainless steel with a little baby oil and buff it.

• Refrigerator vegetable bins: Line the bins with paper towels or newspaper to absorb moisture. When they begin to get damp, use them to wipe out the bins and then replace with fresh paper.

• Kitchen trash cans: Sprinkle a small amount of fresh cat liter in the bottom of the cash can to absorb moisture and odors.

• Reduce oven cleaning: Place a sheet of aluminum foil on the floor of the oven. Replace when soiled.

• Messy Hands: Before going knuckle deep into messy ingredients (making meatloaf, kneading bread etc.) Place two plastic bags nearby. If the phone rings or the baby cries, you can quickly use the plastic bags as gloves to keep from leaving a messy trail of food. Potatoes will take food stains off your fingers just slice, rub a raw potato on the stains, and rinse with water.

• Jars: if you have problem opening jars try using latex dishwashing gloves. They give non-slip grip that makes opening jars easy.
