Q-tips in the Kitchen

The past few weeks I’ve been working my way through my home cleaning with a vengeance.

You know I really mean business if I break out the Q-tips for deep cleaning.

There is seriously no better, cheaper way to deep clean in the grooves and crevices of my kitchen cabinets than with a Precision Tip Q-tip.

It’s perfect for deep cleaning small kitchen appliances…

… and major appliances too.

Since everything in the kitchen is a little greasy, just dip your Q-tip in your favorite degreaser and go to town.

I try to use cleaning solutions that are earth-friendly, effective and easy, so I use vinegar and water as my degreaser.  I usually dilute 50/50 but if it’s really greasy, I’ll use straight vinegar on things like appliances.

I use about 20% vinegar to 80% water for my wood cabinets too.  Vinegar is a known disinfectant so it’s perfect for deep cleaning.  Give me vinegar and a Q-tip and watch out dirty kitchen…  before you know it, it’ll shine like the top of the Chrysler Building.

  • What a great idea! I have some nasty, hard ones (with one sharp end and one weird paddle end) that I bought in NZ out of desperation a while back. They are useless for drying my ears which is what I use them for most – they’d be perfect for leaning the kitchen though!

  • Lori:

    What do you use to clean/polish your stainless steel? This is my biggest frustration in the kitchen!

    Thanks :D

  • Sarah:

    Baby oil on a dry cloth or kitchen paper great to clean stainless steel and chrome. You then buff it with a dry cloth to polish.
