The days of scrubbing the grease out of this small appliance with all your might are over. Fill a bowl with water and vinegar and microwave it for a couple of minutes. The steam that will be created will make the dirt loosen easily and you can remove it with a cloth.

The oven and its trays

To clean the oven with ease, choose to create a paste based on baking soda and water, spread it inside, and leave it to act overnight. The next morning, wipe off the mixture with a cloth, spray the inside of the oven with a little vinegar, and turn it on for a few minutes to dry.

To clean the trays of this appliance we can mix hydrogen peroxide with sodium bicarbonate. Then we will rub this mixture and let it act for about an hour. Then we will remove the liquid with a cloth.
If your coffee starts to taste a little strange, before changing your coffee maker, try to clean it properly. Fill half the tank with water and the other half with vinegar and put it to work without coffee.

The food cutting board

The eaten cutting board is an everyday object that is of great help to us, but over time it accumulates a large amount of dirt and bacteria that are often difficult to remove. And, with a scouring pad, we can spend a lot of time to reach the most impenetrable corners. To fix this problem, we can rub half a lemon with a little coarse salt against the board. Then we must wash it with a little wheal and water so that it remains unpolluted.


It is important to start by remembering the importance of changing your toothbrush at least once every three months. Despite what many people believe, it is not enough to run the brush through the water to clean it. If we want to avoid dental problems, try putting the brush in a glass with white vinegar for several hours. Then you just have to rinse it well to enjoy a clean, bacteria-free toothbrush again.
