Like any woman, I want everything in my kitchen to shine and shine clean. But in the realities of the modern way of life, when you need to feed your family with breakfast in the morning, and take the children to school, and get time to work, and devote time to your husband in the evening, there is not always enough time to bring the ideal clean.
Therefore, for sure, every housewife has problem areas in the house, as well as things that do not bring her pleasure at all. For me it is cleaning the stove.
Of course, the modern household chemicals market is striking in the variety of home cleaning products. And yet there is not a single housewife who would not be faced with heavily washed pollution. Take, for example, the greasy deposits and deposits that we constantly struggle with in the kitchen. It takes hours to remove such stubborn dirt, especially if it is deposited in hard-to-reach places.
And today we have prepared several useful tricks for cleaning the stove, which will be useful to any hostess.
Every housewife is familiar with the problem of constantly dirty handles on a gas or electric stove. A greasy deposit settles on them after each cooking, so you have to clean them all the time.
But my husband found a way thanks to which he was able to wash the handles of the stove in just 2 minutes. A very useful trick!
You will need:
- ear cotton swabs
- old toothbrush
- ammonia-anise drops
- how to clean a glass ceramic plate
- Soak a cotton swab in an ammonia-anise solution (you can take anise tincture).
- Then run your stick along the handles and other dirty parts of the stove. Wait a couple of minutes, and you will see how the fat begins to “melt” and the dirt disappears before our eyes!
- If the grease is heavily eaten, use a toothbrush and a regular sponge!
- It is clear that the oven should not be washed with caustic chemicals, so you should know about these gentle products.
Regular baking soda, citric acid, or baking powder are great for removing dirt from the walls and glass on the oven door.
Moisten the inside of the oven with water, then apply soaked soda or citric acid to the walls and glass. Let it sit for 15 minutes and then thoroughly wipe off the baking soda / soil mixture with a paper towel. Rinse the oven clean with clean water to remove any remaining dirt.
Small contaminants will help to remove water with vinegar in a ratio of 1: 1. Moisten the walls with vinegar water, turn on the oven at 50 degrees and after 15 minutes wash off the contamination with clean water.
The oven must first be thoroughly wiped from the inside with a paper towel, then wet the walls from the inside with soapy water and let the fat soak. Then pour a mixture of water and detergent onto a baking sheet, put the baking sheet in the oven, turn it on at 120 degrees. Close the door and don’t open the oven for half an hour.
Water vapor will dissolve grease, food debris and other contaminants. Then simply wipe the inside of the oven thoroughly with a soft cloth and rinse again with clean water.
Or you can prepare a paste for cleaning the inside of the oven. Mix equal parts salt, baking soda and water. Apply the resulting paste to the contaminated surface and leave overnight. By morning, just wash off the cleaning powder with water.
