The holidays are in full swing, and most Filipinos are busy in the kitchen preparing not only for their noche buena or media noche, but for other holiday gatherings. And of course, what kind of Pinoy event would it be without some good food, right?
While you can opt to order from your favorite restaurants, there’s nothing like giving your dishes a personal touch. However, spending long hours in the kitchen can cause quite a mess. As per Malaya, that’s why La Germania is sharing kitchen cleaning secrets every Filipino family should take note of.
Cleaning As You Snooze
You can clean your range oven with the help of a homemade spray. The best part? The cleaning gets done as you sleep! You just need to combine 1/3 cup water, 1/3 cup white vinegar, and 1/2 cup baking soda into an empty spray bottle.
After you remove the grates and coats in your oven, spray the solution to the insides of your oven. Make sure to avoid the heating elements in your oven in the process of doing so. Leave the solution for up to 12 hours after, and then wipe clean with soapy water and a plush cloth.
Laundry Detergent To The Rescue
It can be laborious to kitchen oven racks in the sink. However, you can get the job done faster and with less effort with the help of a bathtub (or a large basin) and powder detergent.
All you need to do is pour some washing detergent into a bathtub or large basin. Leave your oven racks for at least four hours then rinse them clean with some clean water. Just make sure they’re free from soap suds before placing them back in your oven.
Baking Soda Magic
If you’ve got a range hood at home, it’s important you clean it up from time to time. The filters may be icky once removed, but the effort will be well worth it as it can remove airborne grease, and clear your kitchen from smoke and other pollutants. The good news is that you just need hot water and baking soda.
While you remove the dust on the filters, boil some hot water in a large pot. Gradually add some baking soda, and then put the filter carefully in the solution. Leave it there for 15-20 minutes, and rinse with clean water after.
