Also, try substituting with dish washing liquid, the good smell can help get rid of the odour and do some deep cleaning. Make sure you add water or a residue may build up. Substituting with lemon juice works to, but can leave a stickyness unless you rinse with water or water down adequately. Mixing regular soap with baking soda helps with the odour and the mess. Start by dusting the stain with a thin coat of baking…

Life hack clean an oven

If you’re frequently in the kitchen making dinner and desserts in your oven, you know that it’s very easy for the inside of that big, ole cooking machine to get dirty (especially the oven racks). What’s not easy, however, is getting those oven racks clean. Using the self-cleaning feature of the oven (if your oven even has one) isn’t really designed to clean away all the grease and grime from the oven racks.
