uncooked white rice to pick up lingering aromas. You can also use 1 tablespoon
baking soda and wipe thoroughly.
- Crockpot – spray a bit of fume-free oven cleaner on it in a
well-ventilated room or outside for the exterior heat pot. Let sit for five
minutes. For the crock itself use some Bar Keeper’s Friend will get the gunk
off. Create a paste on your sponge or rag and rub gently for about five minutes
- Oven Cleaning – clean your oven while you sleep by putting ½ cup of
ammonia in a cold oven overnight. Morning clean up is a breeze. Just wipe it
- Curling Iron – rub with a clean piece of steel wool.
- Dishwasher – before you start inspect the drain or the filter
unit. Remove the bottom rack. Remove any foreign objects or debris. Remove and
inspect the holes in the sprayer arm(s). You can use a toothbrush dipped in
vinegar or a toothpick to clean. Place rack and sprayer arm(s) back in
dishwasher. Set a small dishwasher safe bowl on the top rack of the empty
dishwasher and fill with white vinegar. Close door and run a cycle on the
Ring – make a paste using baking soda
and water and brush on with a toothbrush.
- Floor Grease – grab a bucket and create a solution of ¼ cup white
vinegar, 1 tablespoon liquid dish soap, ¼ cup washing soda and 2 gallons of warm
tap water. Mop as usual.
- Instant Pot
Silicone Ring – if the silicone ring
that came with your pot begins to smell, even after washing, add two cups of
vinegar or water + lemon rind to the pot. Place it on the “steam” setting for
two minutes. Allow ring to air dry when done.
- Microwave – set up a microwaveable bowl with water and sliced
lemons and microwave for 5 minutes. The steam will dissolve stuck-on stains.
Wipe out when done.

area restaurants are showing some flexibility in the outdoor dining arena
during this phased reopening. For those who are a bit timid about dining inside
eating outside is a good alternative. Diners are less likely to contract
COVID-19 eating outside than eating inside per the CDC.
