Vinegar is essential in any kitchen not only for its excellent culinary addition but also for its versatility. It can be used in all the rooms of the house from the garden to the laundry room, but today we want to share with you the best uses of vinegar in the kitchen.
To remove dish soap residue in the dishwasher, put a container suitable for washing with white vinegar inside and start a complete washing cycle without dishes or dish soap, at the end of the period clean with a microfiber cloth to reveal a sparkling clean interior. Besides, you will not have dish soap residue all over your dishes in later uses.
Cleaning the grease inside the microwave is easy with vinegar. In a bowl, put 1 cup of water with 1/4 cup of white vinegar and heat at maximum power for 5 minutes, once finished leave the liquid to cool and use it with a microfiber cloth to clean the inside grease will come out with ease.
If your kitchen cloths or sponges start to smell bad after several uses, put them overnight in a container with water and 1/4 cup white vinegar, wash them the next day, and see that the stench diminishes wholly removed.
To wash cutting boards, especially meat ones, use pure white vinegar. It eliminates the stench and kills bacteria that are trapped in the small dents of the cutting board and can generate cross-contamination.
Oven grease is the most difficult to clean, but you can clean it with a solution containing 1 cup of white vinegar and 1/4 cup of powder detergent, first heat the oven to 356°F or 180°C for 5 minutes.
Turn off and spread the solution, especially in the most challenging areas, rest for an hour, and then remove it with a soft spatula (silicone).
Finally, clean with a microfiber cloth dampened in pure white vinegar, this helps prevent the grease from sticking again quickly in your oven.
Vinegar is our best ally in the kitchen.
