The kitchen may be the heart of the home, but frequent use of the area equates to lots of cleaning. Not all stains have to be battled with copious amounts of cleaning agents and scrubbing however, just match the right cleaner to the stain and enjoy a spic and span kitchen in no time.

Oil and grease stains are an inevitable part of cooking in the kitchen, although removing them need not involve hours of scrubbing.

Food stains

Food stains on the stove or countertop are an inevitable occurrence in any kitchen. Electrolux cooking hobs such as the Brio and EHC326BA come with ceramic safety glass that makes it easy to wipe away any stain that accumulates after cooking. Simply use a cloth with warm, soapy water to clean such surfaces.

For countertops and other types of stovetops, wet a dish cloth or paper towels with hot, soapy water and place on the mess for a few minutes. This loosens the dried food so it can be easily wiped away.

Powerful cooking hoods like the Electrolux EFC926BAR can help to reduce grease stains in the kitchen by removing particles from the air during and after cooking.

Oil stains

Oil stains can accumulate on kitchen walls and cooker hoods over time despite your best efforts. Investing in powerful cooker hoods like the Electrolux EFC926BAR can help to filter out most of the grease before they start to coat your kitchen surfaces.

To clean the cooker hood of oil stains, simply dip a paper towel in mineral oil and use it to wipe off the stains. If they are particularly old and stubborn, add baking powder to the oil and rub it off. Take another clean paper towel to wipe off any excess oil. If possible, leave a thin coating of mineral oil to ease your next cleaning session.

For other surfaces such as cabinets, use a damp cloth with a mixture of warm water and white vinegar to clean off the oil stains.

Water spots

For unsightly water spots in kitchen sinks and on faucets, remove them with a soft cloth dampened with white vinegar. This also serves to disinfect the surface and remove odours from the surrounding area.
