The Best Kitchen And Dining Room Cleaning Hacks

The kitchen has become the social centre of today's home; it's a place to cook, gather, eat, drink, and enjoy each other's company.

A sparkling clean kitchen serves as a welcoming space for casual socializing-not to mention making cooking a pleasure.

But keeping this busy space shin­ing like new-and sanitary in the bargain-requires a thoughtful, efficient, and comprehensive cleaning routine.

The action plan for this room not only focuses on removing dirt and grime from the obvious surfaces throughout the room but also disinfecting crucial appliances like microwaves and stoves, as well as food preparation areas.

Always keep in mind that when it comes to handling food, cleanliness is next to healthiness.

Any dining area that complements the kitchen-whether an eat-in area of the same room or a completely separate for­mal dining room - presents fewer cleaning challenges than the kitchen might.

However, it's still important to clean these areas thoroughly and regularly if you want to create an environment conducive to relaxing and socialising.

Formal dining rooms are usually showcase areas and often the least-used rooms in the house.

The key strategy in these rooms is keeping them from looking timeworn.

A regular sprucing up keeps them looking their best and puts the "formal" back into the room.

Pour 2 cups (500 ml) of water into a microwave-safe bowl and put it in the microwave on high for 3 to 5 minutes.

This will help to clean the inside of the unit.

If there are spots of caked-on food in the microwave compart­ment, add 1/2 cup (125 ml) of vinegar to the water and run the microwave for at least 5 minutes.
