Our tips will have you not only saving time, but sanitizing the way the dirty mess was meant to be sanitized.
It’s Dirty in That Sink
Surprisingly, your kitchen sink has more bacteria than your toilet seat. Sanitizing it and removing the bacteria regularly will help you stay healthy. For quick (and healthy) sanitization, use a product that is labeled as an EPA disinfectant. To disinfect: (1) Clean your sink with soap & water. (2) Spray vinegar and hydrogen peroxide. (3) Let air dry.
If your sink happens to be stainless steel, buff the inside of it with mineral oil on a soft cloth. This will prevent buildup, which deters mold & keeps the sink clean longer.
Disinfect and Remove the Smells
To disinfect the garbage disposal, and to get rid of the odors, cut lemon and add some salt and a few ice cubes to the disposal. The lemon will deodorize, and the salt & ice will clean residue. Alternatively, you could use a disposal disinfectant like Disposer Care, which is specifically designed for doing just that.
The Clean as You Go Method
They say that if you clean for 10 minutes every day you’ll have less to do when clean time comes. Here are some more ‘clean as you go’ tips:
- Fill your sink with hot soapy water and let the dishes soak as you start dinner. As dinner is cooking, wash the dishes or put them in the dishwasher. Wash the sponge in the dishwasher instead of buying new ones.
- Tough stain on the linoleum? Spray it profusely with a disinfectant cleaning spray and let it sit for a while before trying to tackle scrubbing it.
- Clean the toilet in a jiffy by dropping a bit of Tang Drink Mix in the bowl first. The citric acid in it acts like a super scrubber.
