Stainless steel appliances seem as though they were designed specifically with cleaning in mind. A single stainless steel wipe has them looking brand new in about 30 seconds flat. But if you have those older white or black appliances? It’s a whole different story. Thankfully, we’re about to share some tips that will have those older appliances looking sparkling clean again.

The first course of action? Get out some baking soda! You already know that baking soda is a magical household cleaner, and it will definitely work some magic on your stove. If you have an electric stove that’s covered in stains and burnt-on food residue, sprinkle some baking soda all over the surface. Take an old toothbrush or small scrub brush dipped in distilled vinegar, then use it to scrub at the marks. Wipe off the residue with a damp cloth when you’re done.

Now this next kitchen cleaning tip might sound odd, but it truly does work wonders. Many people swear by cleaning their appliances with Pledge. Yes, Pledge as in the wood polisher. However, using a microfiber cloth or old cotton t-shirt to wipe down your appliances with Pledge will remove grime, make them sparkle, and repel food splatter. It’s that simple!

Now that you know these simple cleaning hacks, you can get to work on making your kitchen and its old, grimy appliances look brand new again. Happy cleaning!
