Spring Cleaning: Kitchen

Photo: Steven Randazzo

I don't know about you, but I've definitely done my share of Spring cleaning over the past two weeks! Now I'm sharing some green DIY kitchen cleaners with you!
  1. Baking Soda and Water: Reclaim counters by sprinkling with baking soda, then scrubbing with a damp cloth or sponge. If you have stains, knead the baking soda and water into a paste and let set for a while before you remove. This method also works great for stainless steel sinks, cutting boards, containers, refrigerators, oven tops and more.
  2. Kosher Salt and Water: If you need a tougher abrasive sprinkle on kosher salt, and scrub with a wet cloth or sponge.
  3. Natural Disinfectant: To knock out germs without strong products, mix 2 cups of water, 3 tablespoons of liquid soap and 20 to 30 drops of tea tree oil. Spray or rub on countertops and other kitchen surfaces.

Tea tree oil has multiple uses. Not to be used by pregnant women though I hear.
