Gently brush away the residue with a toothbrush.

Kitchen Cabinet Tops

While you are cleaning the kitchen cabinets you often forget about the tops. Meanwhile the kitchen cabinet tops are the dirtiest, because they are usually out of sight.

While you might be cleaning your bathroom thoroughly, you might forget about the bathtub. The water that stays in the bathtub, breeds mold and fungus, so it is essential to dry the bathtub or a shower stall after using it. It is also important to use anti-bacteria detergents once in a while.


Container leftovers, as well as the long forgotten products can create a mess inside a refrigerator. It is important to check the refrigerator at least once in two weeks for the accumulating dirt. To clean the refrigerator you need to take everything out and wipe away any grease and dirt. Then, fill the sink with water, add a dishwashing detergent and clean the plastic containers and shelves that go inside the refrigerators.
