After we are done, we will ensure your Oakland apartments look as spotless as they ever have.
It’s That Time Again
If you think about it, what is one of the most used appliances in your house? If you guessed the microwave, you are correct. The microwave is used at least once a day, if not multiple times a day. What is much more, the splatter of food gets all over it! One of the biggest pain points in spring cleaning in the kitchen is the microwave.
Green Tips and Tricks for the Kitchen
If you’re not a fan of scrubbing the dried food splashes and stains found inside your microwave’s walls, this next tip is for you! This year’s spring cleaning is going to be different. Instead of cleaning your microwave the old fashioned way, we are going to steam-clean the microwave!
We know, this is a revolutionary way of cleaning your microwave. Okay, maybe we went too far, however it is a nifty green tip! To remove old stains, we will steam them before scrubbing them.
Here is the technique: simply fill a microwave-safe bowl with 1-2 cups of water, 2 tablespoons of white vinegar, and a few drops of your favorite essential oil aroma. Next, place the bowl in the microwave for 5 minutes. After the 5 minutes, all stains found along the walls of your microwave will be ready to be wiped, not scrubbed! The upside? Your microwave will also be deodorized.
Make Cleaning Smart!
If we adopt the adage work smarter not harder, we will save time during this year’s spring cleaning.
