Quick Cleaning Tips

Cleaning the microwave can be a tough job that noone wants to tackle. All of that dried on food can turn in to a smeared nightmare! I ran across some really nifty cleaning tips that are also very cheap as well! I couldn't help but share them because I know I'm not the only mom who struggles when cleaning the kitchen. These quick tips are time-savers and I know your gonna love them!

So, to start things off...

Have a Splatter-Free Microwave:
Food splatters left behind in the microwave can cause your machine to not work properly. An easy cleaning tip to fix that problem is to: Fill a microwave-safe bowl with two cups of water and a teaspoon of lemon juice. Place the bowl into the microwave and run it on High for five minutes. Take out the bowl and wipe the microwave down with a paper towel. Presto!! Your microwave is now sparkly, clean and smells great!!

Keep a Fresh Refrigerator:
To help keep odors at bay, there are two options: You can either keep an open box of baking soda in the back of the fridge for 6 months or leave a plate of freshly ground coffee inside for a few days. I've never tried the coffee grounds trick but the baking soda works wonders!

Sanitize Your Sponge:
Did you know that your kitchen sponge that you use to get everything clean, is the #1 source of germs in your home! Don't worry! There's a simple way to help get ride of those nasty little bacteria. Just pop a damp sponge in the microwave for two minutes. Let it cool for atleast one minute and then you're all set.

Keep Teddy Sneeze Free:
Dust mites love to hide in plush toys, which means that your little one's favorite “stuffed” friend could be home to some very unwelcome house-guests. There are a couple different ways to help get rid of mites: Throw the toy in the washing machine, using hot water, and dry on high heat, or put the stuffed animal in a freezer bag and leave it in the freezer overnight.
