The kitchen is a place where you prep your food, the last thing you need is to add extra nastie’s & chemicals on your surface before you make dinner for your family so why not grab a couple of tbs of Baking soda, a cup of white vinegar & 6 drops of eucalyptus oil? it’ll kill any nastie’s and will leave the place smelling pleasant! Just be mindful when mixing as it can be a bit of a mad science experiment.. Start by slowly pouring the vinegar in to a bowl of the baking soda stirring it as you pour. It should eventually all mix after frothing, make sure you add the oil and then you’re ready to use it for wiping all the surfaces around the kitchen.
Cleaning Burnt Pans
Like the kitchen your burnt pans can use some extra loving care when being cleaned. Luckily the same ingredients for the kitchen can be used on the burnt pans, simply pour the mixture on to the pan and let it sit for half an hour to soak in to the burnt pan. If you like you can add some extra water and put it on to a low heat for 5 – 10 minutes then simply scrub it away, you should get everything off quite easily.
Need to polish your brass? Guess what! Lemon juice & Baking soda are a good combo to get the toughest grime of your brass. Simply squeeze 3 lemons and mix them with 2 tbs of Baking soda, then grab a cloth & work those guns!
