Tips Tuesday! More in the Kitchen

I am continuing the Spring Cleaning in the kitchen. Here are some more tips!


For a shiny white sink, cover with paper towels saturated in bleach. Let stand for 30 minutes; then rinse thoroughly with cool water.

To dissolve grease in a clogged drain, pour 1 cup salt and 1 cup baking soda down the drain followed by a kettle of boiling water.

Stainless Steel Sinks
You can make them really shine with club soda or white vinegar.

After normal use, wipe with a damp cloth and dry with a soft cloth.

To deep clean, wipe with a solution of ammonia and water or dish detergent and water. Dry thoroughly to avoid spots.

For water spots or hard water buildup, wipe with white vinegar and flush well with water, then buff with dry cloth.

Treat rust marks by rubbing with lighter fluid. Then wipe clean with a liquid cleaner.

Blender/Food Processor

Fill the container halfway with hot water and a couple of drops of dish detergent. Cover and blend; rinse and dry.

Electric Can Opener

Loosen dirt with a toothbrush and run a paper towel through the cutting assembly. Then spray with non-stick vegetable spray.

Garbage Disposal

Keep it smelling sweet by grinding citrus rind. Or use the discarded baking soda after it has absorbed odors in the refrigerator.


  1. Thanks for stopping by...love the tips you gave for the stainless steel sink, I usually fill mine with hot water than pour in some bleach and leave sit for about an hour. Filling it almost to the top gets the sides clean and sparkly too!


  2. Thanks Rondell! I will have to try that on mine :)
