If you have: Grimy kitchen walls
The combination of
cooking grease, steam, and regular old dust creates a sticky residue on your kitchen’s surfaces. Clean up grease splatters from your walls, range hood, and
cabinets by washing them with a sponge dipped in undiluted white vinegar. Use
another sponge soaked in water to rinse, then wipe dry with paper towels. Tip: Don’t forget the top of your fridge, which can get greasy as well.

If you have: A splatter-filled microwave
If the interior of
your microwave is a real mess, use the softening power of steam to your advantage. Mix 1/2 cup white distilled vinegar and 1/2 cup
water in a glass bowl, then bring to a rolling boil inside the microwave.
Carefully remove the hot bowl and wipe the microwave clean of the now-loosened food using a paper towel.
If you have: A gross kitchen garbage can
An often-overlooked source of real filth is the kitchen
garbage, as traces of food and liquid make their way out of the bin liner
and onto the can itself, leaving a smelly mess. Scrub using dish
detergent or multi-surface cleaning liquid and a nylon-bristle brush (your bathtub is an ideal
place for this task). Rinse and dry thoroughly with paper towels.
