Kitchen floors can attract all sorts of gunk; food spills and splatters can quickly become a sticky mess and don’t even get me started on the dog’s foot prints! To fight these we keep a microfiber mop hidden behind the fridge. When there is a spill or we just want to do a quick cleaning all we need to do is wet a microfiber cloth, attach it to the mop and go to town. In less than 60 seconds we have a clean kitchen floor.
Spills and splatters in the microwave can quickly become a hard mess to remove. Try to clean them as soon as they happen to save yourself from later problems. For those stuck on stains try microwaving a bowl of water or white vinegar for 60 seconds. The steam they let off will loosen caked on splatters; just be careful, the water or vinegar will be hot. We also use a little silicone scraper spatula wedge to help loosen the dried on food.
During the preparation of food there are always spills and splatters. We keep a spray bottle of my homemade general purpose cleaner and a microfiber cloth out all of the time. Just a quick sprits and wipe and I have a clean counter.
