1. Dry Dishes the Finnish Way
Drying dishes has always been a cumbersome issue for many people. One of the easiest ways to dry dishes is to embrace the Finnish way. Install a cabinet above the sink, and instead of shelves make use of slotted dish racks, so that the water drains onto the sink, directly.
2. File Serving Dishes
Kitchen items like trays and chopping boards tend to make the cabinet space appear cluttered. Instead of storing them the usual way, keep them in place by using a file organizer. This way, you won’t have to struggle to get the chopping board out, when you need it.
3. Flip Your Wine Glass
The tall and broad shape of a wine glass makes it difficult to store them all in one place. Here’s a trick: Flip the alternate glasses upside down. This way you will be able to fit more wine glasses on the shelf.
4. Polish Brass with Ketchup
We all have one of those brass artifacts that we have either inherited or bought from a flea market sale, that we love to flaunt. However, after prolonged use, brass tends to wear down and starts appearing old and dingy. To clean: Take a dollop of ketchup on an old cloth and rub the surface of the brass piece. Once done, clean the residue with the help of a damp cloth.
5. Use Foil as a Scrub
The usage of foil is multifaceted! So, the next time you run out of the dish scrubber, make use of foil to clean up dirt from the dishes.
6. Use Towel Bars as a Lid Rack
If you have a tiny kitchen, where space comes at a premium, then you need to put on your creative hat! Just because, a place was meant for something, doesn’t mean that you cannot use it for something entirely different. Pot lids are weird in shape and don’t seem to fit anywhere in the kitchen. Hence, instead of using tension rods to hang towels from, use them to keep the lids in place.
