1. Toss Out Old Sponges
Did you know that kitchen sponges are one of the dirtiest items in your home? Often tucked in a warm and moist corner of your sink, these sponges easily can keep germs and bacteria that may cause food poisoning.

Be sure to replace your sponges every 2 to 4 weeks for good hygiene.

2. Let the Blender Clean Itself
Tired of picking around sharp blades to wash away sticky residue? Here’s a tip: fill your blender with a small amount of dishwashing soap, warm water and some drops of lemon juice for a fresh scent. Turn it on for about 5 to 10 seconds, and then rinse out the suds until the water runs clear. No easier way to get your blender sparkling clean!

3. Clean Your Microwave Naturally
To remove leftover food smells in the microwave, fill a microwave-safe bowl with water, baking soda and a quick squeeze of lemon juice. Heat it in the microwave at maximum power for 1 minute.

4. Give Your Dishwasher a Wash
Over time, large food particles may clog up the dishwasher’s filter. Wash it under running water once a month to remove deposits. From how to load your dishwasher to choosing the right wash programs, follow these 8 tips to help your dishwasher run better!

5. Keep the Shine On
Stainless steel appliances are a stylish addition to many homes, but keeping the luster on over time requires a bit of work. In most cases, you only need to gently buff over the fingerprints and dirty areas with a soft microfiber cloth. Add a few drops of conditioning oil to build up a protective layer against scuffs and marks. To give your appliance extra shine, find the steel grain that runs either horizontally or vertically, and wipe in the same direction.
