In looking to improve your home, one thing that you can do is to do some work in the kitchen, one of the rooms where you may well spend quite a lot of time in both preparing and storing food.
Seeing as a lot of the time that we spend updating the look of the kitchen has to do with cleaning it (as a clean kitchen is a good first step to just about any important kitchen update) it’s worth looking at improving the processes that we can so that we can ultimately have a better looking kitchen.
One thing that you’re going to want to know is that a good mixture of water and vinegar might be just the kind of thing that you need to help you to clean up with an oil stain.
Though you may be well aware of the fact that oil and water do not mix, something about the addition of vinegar in the right ratio (about five parts water to one part vinegar) is just the right thing you are going to need to help you clean up those oil stains.
The thing that you must know is that you may well need to go over the oil stains in order to properly remove them.
While you may be well aware of the fact that ammonia is going to be one of the better things with which you are going to be able to get stains off of your kitchen surfaces, it’s worth noting that you have to be quite careful with it.
More specifically, you have to be quite careful with the amount of ammonia that you use, seeing as it can be quite dangerous to work with it (especially in enclosed spaces.)
With that being the case, you’re going to want to limit how much you use as well as remember to work in a well-ventilated area.
3. Black Soap Cleans Well
Black soap is a kind of soap that is not only good for the environment (in that it doesn’t have any of the possible harmful impact to the environment than some of the other cleaners you will find out there have) but it also is an extremely effective cleaner overall.
Also unlike the other cleaners that you will find, you won’t have to worry about how you protect yourself (vis-a-vis gloves, goggles, and the like) from the soap.
Though you may not recognize it, mops are actually one of the best things that you have going on for you in terms of cleaning your kitchen.
The physics of using a lever is worth knowing about — specifically that by making use of a lever, you’re going to be applying a lot more power to your cleaning.
Moreover, by making use of a mop, you won’t have to get down on the floor the way people did many years ago before the advent or mops to have to exert a lot of effort and to toil away in the cleaning of the kitchen floors.
Lastly, you should remember that while there is a good use for rags out there, that use should be really limited to properly cleaning your counters.
As mentioned above, trying to clean your floors with such rags will be an exercise in putting forth a lot more effort than is needed — you only have to get the right kinds of tools to help you clean your kitchen.
