Festival season – it’s that time of the year when we shed the old and embrace the new. Diwali is one of those festivals which are meant to be celebrated on a huge level.
‘ Diwali ki safai ‘ became the tradition as we believe that only a clean house is blessed by the divine Goddess Laxmi.
On this thought, I want to give you all a helping hand in kitchen cleaning. Here are a few kitchen cleaning hacks that can help you to deep clean your kitchen in less time and make it shine more than ever.
Kitchen Cleaning Hacks for Diwali
1. Cleaning of gas stoves
The main problem with the gas stoves is the layer of grime, oil, and dust. This is really a pain in the head to clean. Lemons are the best way to remove all the oil and grime. Squeeze a couple of lemons, scrub them all over the stove. Dip a cloth in warm water and wipe it clean.
2. Cleaning of exhaust and chimney
Well, I know this is the hardest part to clean and take the majority of your time. However, this is true that we can’t escape it because these are the dirtiest part of our kitchen. Make a solution of warm water, dish soap, and vinegar. Douse them with this liquid and leave for a while. Use a scrub to make this clean.
3. Exile the Roches
Cockroaches, rodents, and insects are the sources of disease. Use eco-friendly anti-insect medicine in kitchen racks to avoid these pests. I spray peppermint oil in every corner of the kitchen. This is such a lifesaver. Try this !!
4. Get rid of the foul smell from the Trash can
Sprinkling some baking soda before throwing away any garbage will absorb all the foul smells and keep your kitchen odor-free.
5. Blender Cleaning
This is the trickiest part to clean. Pour some water with a few drops of dish wash and blend it for around 20 sec. This will make your blender super clean. Try this hack!!
6. Cleaning of microwave oven
I have a super quick tip to clean the oven. Put some wet paper towel with some lemon squeezed into it ( for a good fragrance ) inside the microwave. Turn it on for a few minutes. Water will turn into steam. Let the microwave and paper towels cool off. Use those paper towels to wipe out the inside of the oven. It will be easily cleaned.
7. Sparking Countertop
To make your countertops shine like a mirror try this hack, I am sure you will love it. Take a mixture of water and soap and scrub the countertops with it. Then, apply a mixture of camphor, neem oil, and water and rub all over. This will keep the insects away and create a fresh aroma across your kitchen.
