4 Kitchen Cleaning Shortcuts
“I wish I could spend more time cleaning my kitchen,” said no one ever. Spend less time cleaning and more time enjoying your kitchen with these 4 kitchen cleaning shortcuts:
1. KITCHEN CLEANING SHORTCUT #1: THE MICROWAVE
Quickly clean your microwave by boiling a cup of water in a microwave-safe bowl for five minutes. After the timer goes off, keep the door closed for a few more minutes to loosen up the caked-on food so you can easily wipe it off with a Sparkle® paper towel. Bonus tip: Squeeze a lemon into the water first for extra cleaning power and a fresh-smelling kitchen, too.
2. KITCHEN CLEANING SHORTCUT #2: STAINS
Don’t accumulate a cluttered mess of specialty bathroom sprays. Simply stock one good multipurpose cleaner under the bathroom sink, next to a roll of Sparkle® paper towels. To make things even easier, you can mount a roll holder inside the cabinet door. Spray the sink with cleaner and wipe away toothpaste dribbles and more in seconds.
3. KITCHEN CLEANING SHORTCUT #3: STUCK-ON FOOD
No need to spend time scrubbing. Simply soak a paper towel in some warm, soapy water, then lay it on top of stuck-on food for a few minutes. Then, you can easily wipe the food off the counter.
4. KITCHEN CLEANING SHORTCUT #4: FAUCETS
Make your faucets shine with a few drops of baby oil buffed on with a Sparkle® paper towel. The oil will resist water spots, buying you more time between shines!
