No space for an overhead rack in your kitchen space? No problem. The best way to make space in small places is to stop stacking and start hanging. Simply place some corkboard on the inside of the cabinet and stick on adhesive hooks. You can hang all your pots and pans and have tons of space.
No need to drill holes or knock in nails. Sticking on wood is just as good and is completely hassle-free.
Scrub Produce With Baking Soda
Chemicals, huh? You can't live without them, but you also can't live with the vegan PTA mom going on and on about how your shampoo is basically poisoning you. Well, thanks to this hack, she will have one less thing to nag about. For years, baking soda has been touted as one of the most versatile must-have items for your kitchen.
By just adding a couple of teaspoons of baking soda to 1-2 cups of water, you will have yourself an all-natural produce scrub. Combine the mixture in a large mixing bowl, or add the ingredients into a spray bottle and shake well. Once mixed, you will have the perfect all-natural solution for ridding your produce of pesticides, dirt, and unwanted yuck from every nook and cranny. Once cleaned, make sure to rinse your produce thoroughly.
Hang Up Heavy Utensils Too
Once you've started sticking up hooks, you will find that you will have endless space. You can hang up bigger utensils like spatulas, strainers, larger spoons, and ladles even larger hanging knives like cleavers and chef knives.
This can really take away the frustration of a messy kitchen. It's also much easier to find. Just make sure you don't hang anything sharp in places children can reach.
Throw Dishwashing Liquid into Your Blender
Cleaning a blender can be a real headache. Not only that, but it can be potentially pretty dangerous. Sticking your hand into blades can cut your hand up into ribbons. No one wants that. There are safer ways though. You can try dishwashing liquid.
Add the dish soap to your blender, two cups of warm water, and blend it together until the food residue washes away. It's super safe and totally efficient.
Light Up Dark Cabinets with LED Lights
Unfortunately, not all of us can afford the fancy cabinet lighting that comes with our kitchen units. Some of us mere mortals have to put up with the shame of dark cabinets. This can be rather annoying when you're trying to rummage around for some cereal or a jar of peanut butter.
You don't need to walk through kitchen supplies with a flashlight or candle. You can just install some LED lights into the shelves so that you see everything clearly. They are pretty cheap and look pretty sleek if you ask us.
