Clean your cleaning tools!
Keep sponges, plastic scrubbers, and dish mops clean and fresh smelling: occasionally, run them through a dishwasher load in the top rack.(Tips from cleaning service section)
Getting up old hardened food spills
Soak-and-dissolve is still the easiest way to loosen dried on foods on the floor, table, and counters. But if you are the impatient type, a plastic windshield ice scraper is good for snooping them off.
Cleaning a wood worktop
To keep a butcher block worktop clean and fresh, scrape off all waste after each use and rub it with salt or a baking soda paste every now and then
Keeping a cutting board fresh smelling
After cutting onions or garlic on a wood surface, rub it with a slice of freshly cut lemon. Rinse and wipe dry.
A simple kitchen safety measure
Every few days—or immediately after cutting meat or poultry—wipe down your food preparation surfaces with hot soapy water to discourage bacteria. Rinse thoroughly and wipe dry.
Eliminating worktop stains
Get rid of those pesky purple price marks that transfer from containers onto worktops. Rubbing alcohol quickly erases them.
Rub worktop stains, such as mustard, tea, or fruit juice, with baking soda and a damp cloth or sponge. If the stain persists, wipe it with a cloth moistened with a little chlorine bleach.
