Regular cleaning will protect your home from the spread of bacteria and mold. Aggressive chemicals can not only damage surfaces but also lead to serious health problems. Effective natural ingredients that are safe and environmentally friendly will come in handy.

Experts told us what simple, safe, and effective life hacks will help clean the kitchen from dirt, grease, and fungal spores. You will need baking soda, vinegar, and citric acid.

Life hack 1

  • Try using a combination of vinegar and baking soda. Make a cleaning paste. Mix ½ cup of baking soda with water and apply the paste to the bottom of the oven, the sides, and the inside of the glass door, avoiding the heating elements.
  • Let the mixture brew. Leave the paste on for at least two hours or overnight.
  • Sprinkle with diluted vinegar. Fill a spray bottle with half water and half white vinegar and spray it over the baking soda. The acid in the vinegar will react with the baking soda to help remove burnt-on food stains from the oven.

Life hack 2

Salt is a quick, cheap and easy ingredient for cleaning the oven. Quickly open the hot oven and gently sprinkle some salt on the stained areas. This method is most effective during cooking when food is leaking out of the pans.

Life hack 3

Use a half of a cut lemon, add baking soda to the fleshy part, and then rub the stains, holding the lemon like a sponge. The acid will mix with the baking soda to naturally clean away stubborn grease and dirt.

  • Vinegar and soap solution will also come in handy. In a spray bottle, mix equal parts white vinegar, dishwashing liquid, and water.
  • After spraying the inside of the oven, let the mixture sit for a few hours. Then wipe with a cloth or scrub stubborn spots with a brush.

Life hack 5

  • Mix 1/2 cup of dish detergent and 1/2 cup of baking soda until a paste forms.
  • Spread the mixture in the oven using an old toothbrush or sponge. Leave it on overnight or for at least a few hours.
  • Use a damp cloth or sponge to wipe all surfaces to make the oven clean.
