Introducing Kitchen Quick Tips


I came up with the idea of doing a weekly Kitchen Quick Tips back in November but didn't follow through on it until now. Over the years I've picked up a lot of little tips and tricks that make cooking a bit easier. While some are sprinkled throughout the regular posts and will continue in that fashion I thought it a separate label of quick tips would help you find these little tidbits easier and making it easier for you to collect them. The quick tips will not be limited to just cooking. They will be short, sweet and to the point likely averaging one sentence. You will be able to identify these tips by the banner I made just for them and searching the new label kitchen quick tips. Kitchen Quick Tips will appear each Thursday. I hope you enjoy these quick tips and find them useful.

Here's your first Kitchen Quick Tip:

Wipe your counters with hydrogen peroxide to kill germs just as effectively as chloride bleach without the harmful nature of chloride bleach. Hydrogen peroxide will keep your counters stain free as well.

Interesting! I don't know why I never thought to use peroxide. Now that you mention it, I do remember some of it's properties! Great tip! I'm looking forward to seeing more.

Thanks so much for sharing the tip! Peroxide is so much cheaper than normal kitchen cleaners. I'll have to try it out.

The nice thing about using hydrogen peroxide is it does everything chlorine bleach does without irritating the lungs. Chlorine bleach is a common trigger for those with asthma. It also is not as damaging on your clothes like bleach is.
