Kitchen Elements That Do Double-Duty on Cleaning Day

  |     |   Apartment Living

The residents of our Chicago, IL apartments love living in the center of all the hustle and bustle the Windy City has to offer. Many of them also love living in spaces that are spick and span. When cleaning day arrives, some people give everyday household objects double duty by embracing their abilities to make counters and floors spotless. Are you wondering which kitchen items have magical cleaning capabilities? Let's take a look!

Dishwashing Gloves Remove Pet Hair

You know those stubborn furs that Fido leaves behind after he's had a slumber on the sofa? It seems like no matter how much you vacuum, you can never get all of the hair to go away. When you run an ordinary pair of dishwashing gloves under water, they instantly collect pet fur like it's their business. This works on all types of sturdy fabrics, including upholstery, carpeting, and heavy outerwear.

Lemons Clean Microwaves

No matter how hard you try, it seems like the goo from food always finds a way to explode when it's in the microwave. Over time, this buildup can become crusty and quite difficult to get clean. This is when lemons enter the picture. When microwaved in a bit of water, the citrus from the lemons and the steam from the water come together in a way that makes it easy to wipe off most stuck-on messes.

Seltzer Water Fights Rust Off Cast-Iron Cookware

Cast-iron cookware isn't cheap, so it only makes sense that you'd want to keep it looking its best for as long as possible. Pour a little seltzer water into your skillet or pot, and the bubbles will know exactly what to do. Swish the liquid around for a minute or two, then use a scrubbing pad to easily remove the residue. 

White Rice Cleans Coffee Grinders

Run a handful of rice through your coffee grinder to get it squeaky clean and ready to grind your next cup of Joe. The rice helps removed trapped coffee grounds and stale odors.
