Blend with washing up liquid!

If you use your blender often you’re probably aware of how tedious it can be to clean, however it need not be. Just take the blender container, fill it with hot water (not too hot) and add a little washing up liquid, dry off any water on the exterior and let it blend! After 15 seconds just empty the water into the sink and rinse it out, awesome!

Lemon-aid for the microwave

Of all the appliances that need cleaning in the kitchen there’s little more frustrating than the microwave. The high heats cause food to occasionally splatter on the metal sides and the heat makes it solidify, making it a nightmare to clean, however this little trick might help out. Just fill a heat proof container and squeeze in the juice of one lemon, put it in the microwave and heat for 30 seconds, the slight acidity of the steam makes any grime easier to clean, while not damaging the innards of the microwave.

So there you have it, 5 Cleaning Hacks for the Kitchen. These will save you precious time, just stay on top of cleaning otherwise it only gets harder!
