Empty the contents of your fridge drawers and line the drawers with fresh paper towel Wipe down the fridge shelves and line them with drawer liners or more paper towel Put a small box of baking soda in the back to soak up the odours Vinegar is your friend. Use it for cleaning inside your fridge instead of harsh cleaning supplies Clean out spills as soon as they happen so they don’t solidify Check weekly for any food that’s going bad and chuck it out Baking soda with a bit of vinegar will help remove stuck on stains Stainless steel refrigerators need special cleaning products for the outside, see if the manufacturer recommends one before using something else to avoid damaging the steel
The Stove - Range - Oven
Soapy water and vinegar are your friends here too – we like to use natural cleaners as much as we can when cleaning our kitchen Use baking soda to create a paste to help safely scrub off difficult stains on the stove top Take a skinny spatula, wrap it in a thin cloth and use that to skim along the edges to clean out those tiny crevices Use your ovens steam clean or self-clean options to clean internally – just be sure to follow the instructions from the manufacturer Fill up a large sink with hot water and vinegar and soak your oven racks for a few hours to make them easier to scrub clean Be sure to double check with the manual before doing anything to your stove/oven to make sure nothing gets ruined
Rinse dishes well before placing in the dishwasher, focus on removing larger pieces of food Use a natural cleaner on a cloth to wipe off the front and controls weekly Use a cleaning tablet once a month to rinse out the inside Pop out the filter within the bottom of the dishwasher and carefully scoop out any sediment or large chunks of food You can use vinegar in a bowl instead of buying a cleaner however be careful not to use it too often as it can affect the rubber parts inside your dishwasher Use a toothbrush to scrub the wash arms and utensil baskets with baking soda to get off hard stains
