In The Kitchen
Make a circle – Always begin on the right side of your stove, then move clockwise around the room. The stove is typically the dirtiest part of the kitchen, so ending with it keeps you from spreading dirt and grease. (First, soak drip pans and knobs in warm soapy water. By the time you’ve worked your way around, they’ll be easier to clean.)
Keep the oven of your kitchen clean by lining the bottom with a nonstick oven liner. It can be wiped with a paper towel, put in the dishwasher and reused over and over.
Clean as You Go – Fill your sink with hot soapy water as you start dinner. Place used dishes and pans in the filled sink so they’ll be soaking while you eat. Also, wipe up any spills right away so you don’t give sauces, oils or spices a chance to sit around.
In the Bathroom
Get a Cleaner Liner – Mold and mildew attacking your shower curtain liner? Throw it in the wash with a few towels, which will help scrub it clean, then hang it back up to dry.
Drop a teaspoon of Tang Drink Mix in the bowl. The citric acid acts like a scrubber…and it’s nontoxic, in case the dog or takes a sip. Let it sit for a few minutes, then swish and flush.
if you hate the idea of getting splashed by toilet water push the toilet brush in and out of the trap before you begin. This lowers the water level, allowing you to safely swish away.
