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
