how to Spring Clean Your Kitchen

It’s time to break out the bright yellow rubber gloves and attack our down-and- dirty-checklist.
THE OVEN. If you aren’t blessed with a self-cleaning oven, mix a paste of baking soda and water. Coat the inner walls with the paste and let stand overnight. In the morning use a plastic spatula to remove it (wearing your trusty gloves!).
MICROWAVE. If there are stubborn stains, try boiling a glass of water in the microwave. The steam should help loosen the stains.
LINENS. Add lemon slices to a large pot of water; bring to a boil. Turn off the heat, add your linens, and soak for an hour. Launder as usual!
THE PANTRY. Take everything out of the pantry, wipe down the shelves, and discard all products
that have expired.
CAST IRON SKILLETS. Use a soft sponge and coarse salt to scrub the skillet. The salt acts as a natural abrasive and lifts oil and bits of food. Rinse away salt and wipe dry.
THE SINK. Pour baking soda with warm water and lemon peel down your disposal to freshen the drain. Throw some ice cubes in there, too, and turn it on to help sharpen the blades.
THE FRIDGE. Wipe down shelves, discard old food, and replace your boxes of baking soda
in both the freezer and the fridge.
LOOK UP. See your ceiling? Yes, it’s time to wipe it clean. May as well do the walls, baseboards,
and moldings, too!
