Priced Right’s 10 Cleaning Tips for Thanksgiving Day
When it’s all said and done, meal prepping, and devouring isn’t just for one…but most of the time, the cleaning process is. However, fret not! We’re going to make it much easier for you with these 10 useful tips.
Get Rid of Water Spots from Glasses
Soak stemware in white vinegar for five minutes to remove the build-up film of hard-water minerals. After, rinse by hand and dry with a microfiber cloth.
Shine Dull Pots & Pans
Add a tablespoon of lemon juice to cookware filled with water. Let simmer for sparkling results. (Soak with Joy Dish Soap for extra shine boost, found in-store for only $6.89!)
Get Stains Out of your Cutting Board
Sprinkle your cutting boards with salt or baking soda, then run the cut side of a lemon over it to remove food stains and smells. (Or you could purchase a new prepping board in-store for only $13.99!)
Remove Grime from Patio Furniture
Wipe down your outdoor tables and chairs using a damp cloth (dipped in a bowl of water mixed with dish detergent). Rinse clean with a garden hose.
Get Gunk out of Wooden Counters
Use table salt to get rid of stains from butcher-block countertops. Sprinkle over light marks, then scrub with the cut side of half of a lemon. Let it sit overnight, then rinse with water.
Clean Pesky Oven Spills
If you don’t own a self-cleaning oven, scatter table salt in a warm oven to soak up spills. Wipe the absorbed mess with a damp sponge or cloth once the oven is cool.
Revive your Silver
Dull silverware and jewelry? Don’t fret. Just wet your silverware and rub it with a little toothpaste, rinse and dry with a clean cloth for instant shine.
Freshen your Microwave.
Heat a cup of water, several tablespoons of vinegar, and a chopped-up lemon on high until the microwave’s window is steamy to make caked-on grime easier to wipe off. Let it sit for 5 minutes before opening and cleaning inside with ease. (Tip: Use the 15-count Bounty Paper Towels to wipe off your degunked microwave, found in-store for only $18.79)!
Clean Up Wine Stains
Save your carpet, by blotting up as much of the wine as possible. Then saturate the stain with a mix of two cups of warm water and add a tablespoon each of dishwashing liquid and white vinegar stirred thoroughly. Soak a clean cloth in the mixture and dab on the affected area thoroughly to loosen the stain before rinsing with cold water.
De-stink your Garbage Disposal.
Get rid of sour odors in your garbage disposal by running a few lemon rinds through it and following u with cold water.
