1.Grease on the Stovetop: If you use your stovetop a lot you will notice that you always have little rings of grease around the burner covers.

This can be very difficult to get off and you have to be careful what you use so you don’t leave ugly scratches.

Believe it or not, the easiest way to remove those grease rings is by using oil.

I know, that sounds crazy, but trust me it works. You just need to pour a few drops of mineral or vegetable oil on a paper towel.

Run that over the grease on the stovetop. The oil will take away the greasy mess.
A few drops of dishwashing liquid on a damp paper towel removest he oil.

2.Wax Your Stovetop: This is a way to prevent grease and other stuff from sticking to the stovetop.

Use some regular car wax, rub on the stovetop and then wipe it off. Your stovetop will have a nice shine and the wax will keep things from sticking to the stovetop.

You can easily wipe off any spills very quickly.

3.Cast Iron Skillets: For a very easy way to clean up a cast iron skillet all you need is some sea salt and a soft sponge or cloth.

Just sprinkle the sea salt in the damp skillet and wipe with the soft cloth.

The sea salt works as a soft abrasive and will remove oil and food residue and rust.

4. Cleaning the Microwave: Make your life a lot easier, combine about 2 cups of water, 2 tablespoons of white vinegar and a few drops of a favorite essential oil in a microwave-safe bowl.

Now “cook” in the microwave for 5 min- utes. Carefully remove the bowl and wipe the inside of the microwave clean.
