one Do not wash the blender by hand, but turn it on with detergent
Washing household appliances is one of the most unpleasant activities in the kitchen, because very rarely its elements can be sent to the dishwasher. In particular, problems arise with the blender. However, it is not necessary to disassemble it and wash each part separately. Instead, pour dish detergent, warm water into the blender bowl and start one of the modes. An impromptu self-cleaning function will turn out — small adhering crumbs, fat, coloring pigments will be washed off. It remains only to rinse the container and elements.
5 smart ways to make cleaning easier and more efficient
2 Clean the soleplate with paracetamol
A layer of soot forms on the soleplate from time to time. It is important to remove it immediately, otherwise, with strong heating, the iron will leave stains on clothes, especially thin or light ones. This does not always work out — rarely at the right time there is a special cleansing pencil at home. Paracetamol will come to the rescue — one or two tablets will perform the same function, cleaning the surface almost to its original state. Heat the iron, clamp the tablet with tongs and rub the dirt until it finally comes off. At the end, you need to wipe the sole of the iron with a dry cloth.

3 Soak a plastic container with paper napkins
Plastic containers are used by everyone who takes food with them to work or likes to shift ready-made dishes from pots and pans. However, they are quickly salted, and a simple sponge with a product no longer helps. In this case, soak a container of hot water, dish soap, and a couple of paper towels for an hour or more. They will absorb stubborn fat, as well as color — some containers also turn yellow over time.
four Use lemon oil for sticker marks
Peeling children’s stickers from walls or furniture, ridding store packaging of flashy labels, removing stickers from new household appliances — lemon oil can handle all these tasks. First you need to remove the top glossy layer of the sticker, then apply lemon oil to a cotton pad and apply it to the remaining layer. The best thing, of course, is to hold the disc for a couple of minutes so that the adhered layer is completely saturated. Then pry off the paper and gently pull it off the surface. Oil marks may remain on it — remove them first with a damp cloth, and then with a dry cloth.

5 Do not drain grease down the sink
The kitchen sink is one of the dirtiest places in the apartment, which is not very pleasant to clean. Therefore, it is better not to aggravate the situation. For example, you should be careful with fat. Immediately after frying, do not drain it into the sink. A little oil will remain on the sink itself, which will then complicate cleaning, and in the drain, fat, frozen, can cause blockages. The first option is to soak the pan immediately with hot water and detergent, and when the fat begins to dissolve, it can be drained. Or, if you have already missed the moment after cooking, wait until the oil has completely solidified, scrape it into a bag or an unnecessary plastic jar and throw it in the trash. So you do not have to clean the sink and drain immediately after washing the dishes.
6 Don’t throw away your old toothbrush
Of course, in stores you can find special brushes for cleaning, but they are usually at least 5 cm in size. In cleaning, sometimes you need to get into hard-to-reach narrow places — then a toothbrush will help out. The «working surface» is very small, and the handle is long. It will be easy to clean tile seams, corners and joints of plumbing with walls, recesses on furniture or household appliances. And two different types can come in handy — with soft bristles and hard.
