Spring Clean the Kitchen

  • Wipe down countertops
  • Wipe down the exterior of all kitchen appliances
  • Clean stove top
  • Clean inside of oven (if your oven is self-cleaning, select the self-clean setting. If it is not self-cleaning, take the oven racks out and clean in the sink, wipe any loose food particles out of the oven, sprinkle a generous layer of this baking soda inside the oven then spritz with some white vinegar. Let it sit for at least 12 hours, then wipe out with a damp cloth. I recommend using these cleaning gloves while cleaning the inside of your oven.)
