Q: I just had my first kitchen fire! Thankfully, I had my handy fire extinguisher nearby, so disaster was averted. But now, there is yellow fire-retardant dust everywhere —countertop, stovetop, floor, cabinets, and every nook and cranny in between.
When did dustpans get so fancy? If you've always disliked cheap plastic dustpans, there are now quite a few swanky alternatives that'll make sweeping your kitchen feel like a luxurious activity (well, almost!).
When it’s cold and wet outside, be on the lookout: That's the time when ants are on the march towards your kitchen, looking for warmer, sugar-stocked climes to hide out in for the winter. The solution? Make a bottle of this potent natural spray to use on your window and door frames, baseboards, and anywhere else the little critters tend to sneak into your home.
After years of hand washing the dishes, I finally live in an apartment with a dishwasher. (Cue choirs of angels singing.) I tried a few dishwasher detergents, but none made me as pleased as the one I now buy in bulk. It's eco-friendly, totally easy to use, and cleans the crustiest, un-rinsed dishes with aplomb.
A beautiful, minimalist solution to the question of where to store the broom. If you don't have a dedicated closet for cleaning tools it may be stuck behind the fridge or rattling around in the pantry. This wood holder turns the broom into functional art to be displayed on any wall in the kitchen (and of course it doesn't hurt if your broom looks like the one here).
Let's get something straight: Nobody likes washing the dishes. We make it through with the help of good tunes, some nice-smelling soap, and a trusty cleaning tool to make the process go by a little faster. Last year I found my very own trusty cleaning tool, and it changed my attitude about washing the dishes.
My favorite dishwashing tool is not fancy — it's something simple you can buy online or at a grocery store. Have you tried it before?
We don't know about you, but we love a good cleaning tip. Admittedly one of the worst parts about being a home cook is doing the washing up. So anything that makes that dreaded chore easier, faster, or less of a hassle makes us happy.
