Unbelievable easy way to Spring Clean Greasy Stove Burners and Gross home fridge

Happy Spring Cleaning To all…

Yesterday when I was browsing through the web and I found this article in This is very nice article for spring cleaning your home.

Part 1-Why Spring cleans your home?

A cluttered home does not just look terrible: according to scientists, it can damage your mental health.
A recent study conducted by David Tolin, founder of America's Anxiety Disorder Centre at Hartford Hospital's Institute of Living in Connecticut, confirms what most of us knew instinctively: clutter is not only bad for our physical health - breeding mould and bacteria - it also plays havoc with our mental health.
While merely being disorganized is not a medical condition, it can weigh down on a person's wellbeing. I've seen people in depression because they feel they can't even do the simple task of keeping their house clean," says Sue Kay, spokeswoman for the Association of Professional De-cluttered and Organizers and author of clutter-busting books like Hoarder To Order ( "It is why a thorough spring clean has a definite feel-good factor. It not only clears space, it helps wipe that 'to do' list that constantly accumulates in your head and keeps you awake at night."

Part 2-Why we Clutter?

The reasons people clutter up their lives vary. It can spring from being simply disorganized - but in more extreme cases, hoarders have formed an emotional attachment to their possessions. These people are likely to be unfazed that their mess disturbs others or puts unnecessary strain upon their relationships.
Clutter can stem from erroneous beliefs about possessions," says Dr Liz Forrester, a consultant clinical psychologist at the South London and Maudsley Institute of Psychiatry. "Some people believe that if you discard something, it reflects on your feelings for someone. An example would be keeping a bus ticket you used to visit someone. The person may feel that if they discard the ticket, it means they didn't respect or love the person they'd visited with the ticket."

Part 3- Unbelievable way Cleaning Stove Burners

They are very hard to clean. But after reading this blog you will have fun time to clean them.
grease, dirt, stove grate, stove burner
Remember ammonia?  Yes Basic ammonia?   Take about 1/4 cup of ammonia and seal it up with one of the burners in a large Ziploc bag.  You only need a little ammonia in the bag.  You are not trying to soak the burner… you just want to seal it up with the ammonia fumes.
I leave it outside on a cookie sheet overnight.  (You can leave it inside, but I move it outside just in case the bag springs a leak or something.  Stinky)  It is the fumes from the ammonia that dissolves all of the grease and hardened oil. You don't need to soak it; it just needs to be sealed up with the ammonia fumes.
When it’s done sitting, it should wipe clean with a sponge.
See how amazing?  It’s the same burner.  Easy peasy, no more greasy.

Part 4- Easy Refrigerator Cleaning

I'm about to show you the grossest thing you've ever seen. You will fall out of your chair.  This is what my fridge looked like yesterday morning.

Okay, now that you've picked up your jaw from off the floor, allow me to explain.
That spilled milk? It leaked out of Judah's bottle during the night. The rest? I'm afraid I have no excuse. My fridge has been in desperate need of a cleaning for a while - it's just not on my list of favorite things to do, I guess. The spilled milk was the last straw before I got a scrub-a-dub-dubbing. And now?
Dun-dun-da-dun. Let's just say the results from a little bit of elbow grease are so, so worth it!
If you're fridge looks like mine did, here are a few tricks to make the dreaded job easier:
How to clean?
Step 1-Take out all the food. If you're worried about spoiling, store the perishables in a cooler while you clean.
Step 2-Remove all the drawers and any shelves that can fit into your sink.
Step 3-Fill your sink with steaming hot water, vinegar, baking soda, and a bit of dish soap. Using a dish brush, scrub away the grime from the drawers and smaller shelves.
Step 4-Once the drawers have been dried, pass them off to your two-year-old and watch her imagination soar! Apparently they make fantastic beds for stuffed bears and dogs. Not to mention they're great for keeping a wee one occupied while you finish cleaning.
Step 5-Sprinkle some baking soda on the larger shelves. Add a splash of vinegar and real lemon juice before putting all you might into scrubbing away the residue with a dish brush. Don't forget the sides of the refrigerator too.
Step 6-Use paper towel or a microfiber cloth to wipe away the wet mess and leave a streak-free shine.
