Part II: A clean kitchen is a happy kitchen


Your holiday settlers will be arriving shortly. Is your home(stead) ready? We’re helping you get holiday-ready one quick checklist at a time. See part one here. We have one goal: help you prep your home in 30 minutes a day or less.

In this week’s article, we are focusing on the kitchen, where most time is spent during the Thanksgiving holiday.

  • If your tea kettle isn’t shining like it used to, spritz the outside with apple cider vinegar. To finish, wipe it with a cloth covered in baking soda along the grain.
  • For the perfect pie crust, add 1 teaspoon of apple cider vinegar to the mix.
  • Stained refrigerators aren’t inviting for even the least popular veggies. Make it shine like new after soaking problem areas, like drawers and shelves, in undiluted white distilled vinegar.
  • For sparkling silverware, soak in a sink full of vinegar.
  • Refresh sponges and dish clothes by soaking in enough water to cover them and add 1/4 cup of white distilled vinegar. Let sit overnight.
  • Prep plastic food storage containers for ample leftovers. To clean stained or smelly containers, wipe them with a cloth dampened with white distilled vinegar.
  • Spray cutting boards with undiluted vinegar to remove surface residue.
  • A basic baking soda and vinegar mix can remove a greasy mess around the stove. Apply it in paste form, allow it to sit and then wipe down.

A few minutes a day spent in the kitchen with vinegar will have your house clean and smelling fresh in no time.
