Video: Cleaning the kitchen can feel like a Sisyphean battle against a greasy stovetop. No matter how often you clean, there’s still more surfaces that need to be wiped down. But you can make effective cleaning solutions from common household items and skip the store-bought products. For example, you can mix hydrogen peroxide and bicarb soda to make a paste that will effectively clean grease stains. And you can clean a wooden cutting board by wiping it down with vinegar, covering it with salt and scrubbing it with a lemon. A little ingenuity and elbow grease and you’ll be on your way to a clean kitchen.
