No matter how great at cooking you are, your kitchen always has to be spotless and organized—you can’t expect to replicate all those wonderful recipes you see on TV unless you work in such a kitchen, can you? Kitchens are usually small, but they still deserve attention, so trying to keep them clean, healthy and fabulous should be high on your list of priorities. And if you don’t know how to do so, here are five tips that might help you.

Clean Tile with Baking Soda

Most of us use baking soda in cooking quite frequently, but have you ever considered cleaning with it? Probably not, but you’d be amazed at what half a cup of soda mixed with two gallons of water can do. Cooking usually involves a ton of mess, especially with inexperienced cooks, and baking soda isn’t just one of the cheapest ways to clean your tiles, but also among the most eco-friendly and efficient methods to remove those stubborn stains. Besides tiles, you can clean other areas in the kitchen using baking soda—from cups and cookware to ovens and countertops!

Learn How to Freeze Food

Remember all those leftovers you don’t know what to do with, so you just stack them in your freezer instead of throwing them into the trash? Well, if you too like saving food for later, be sure not to use plastic containers and opt for eco-friendly solutions instead. Glass-, metal- or ,even, silicon-based storage solutions are much better in the long run and will keep your food just as fresh and tasty as those nasty plastic containers that are slowly destroying our planet.
