Cleaning odds and ends in the kitchen

How do you clean salt and pepper shakers?

The ones left out on the stove can start to look really disgusting. Wiping them with a wet sponge when cleaning after cooking doesn’t do much to help, right? Well, have you ever noticed how much time restaurant staffs spend cleaning salt & pepper shakers? Sitting there on the stove at home, they’re collecting grease, grime, and splatters plus enough heat to harden them into a film that’s nasty to get off. However, Speed Cleaning™ Red Juice and a Speed Cleaning™ White Pad will clean them nicely and with minimum effort. Then clean the holes in the salt and pepper shakers with a toothpick. As good as new!

How do you clean a can opener?

Do you ever feel like your can opener is so dirty that you just want to throw it away and start again? Don’t toss your can opener in the can just yet. If it’s a hand-operated one, put the whole thing in the dishwasher. (First give it a quick scrubbing with a toothbrush and a shot of Speed Cleaning™ Red Juice.) If it’s electric, slide the cutting mechanism away from the body of the opening, and put only that part in the dishwasher. The body can easily be cleaned with Speed Cleaning™ Red Juice, a Speed Cleaning™ Premium Cotton Cleaning cloth, and probably a toothbrush. Any small appliance, with difficult to reach nobs, buttons, corners, and molded parts is an ideal place for a toothbrush to come to the rescue. Naturally, do unplug small appliances before you start bathing them in Red Juice or anything else.

How do you clean glass stove tops without streaking?

There can be streaks on porcelain stove tops also, it’s just that they don’t show up the way they do on glass. The streaks on your glass stove top are from two sources. The first is that you’re probably cleaning the stove top with a sponge and soapy water or with Speed Cleaning™ Red Juice or another general cleaner. Any of these products can leave a visible streak on glass. After first using one of these products to clean, respray the stove top with Speed Cleaning™ Blue Juice or another glass cleaner and wipe it dry with a Speed Cleaning™ Premium Cotton Cleaning cloth. The second reason it may be streaking is that you may be cleaning it while it’s still warm. In that case, the heat is evaporating the cleaner faster than you can wipe it all off, and the result it streaks. Let it cool thoroughly first.
