This week’s Works for Me Wednesday is a themed edition: share your best cleaning tip. I don’t have any one super-spectacular cleaning tip, so I’ll just share a few of my favorites:
Microwave. The easiest way to clean the microwave is also super simple. Just place a cup of water in the microwave (I’ll often put a splash of lemon juice in the water) and turn it on long enough to bring the water to a boil. After the microwave goes off, don’t do anything –including open the door — for five minutes. Then, just take a damp cloth, open the door and wipe down thoroughly.
Bar Keeper’s Friend. This stuff is awesome! It works wonders on the tub/shower, but is also gentle enough for our glass top stove.
The van. I don’t usually purposely keep plastic grocery bags in my van, but, even so, there are usually some in there. Cleaning out the van — with a bag for stuff that needs to go in the house and another for stuff that needs to be thrown away — makes a great activity for wait times. You know, like when somebody is in the orthodontist’s office or an outside class.
