Clean gunk from appliances
Dip an old toothbrush in soapy water and use it to clean between appliance knobs and buttons, and raised-letter nameplates. If the appliance is electric, make sure it is unplugged from the wall.
Now discover 14 things you should never clean with water.
Scrub under your nails
It can sometimes be hard to remove the dirt and grime that builds up under your nails. If you don’t have a nail brush, put some soap onto an old toothbrush and use it to scrub your nails clean.
De-pulp your juicer
It’s easy to forget that electric juicers are traps for all manner of fruit (and therefore, food) particles. Keep it clean as a whistle to prevent bacteria build-up by cleaning it thoroughly: disassemble it, wipe out the pulp and discard it, and fill your kitchen sink with hot, soapy water. Soak everything but the motor casing for 10 minutes, remove the pieces from the sink, and scrub with a soft toothbrush. Dry well, reassemble, and juice for all you’re worth!
