Natural Cleaning Methods for the Kitchen

Martha Stewart Living, June 2012

Hone the forces of nature and put them to work in your kitchen with these natural cleansing remedies. Everything you'll need (aside from a little elbow grease) is probably already on your kitchen shelves.


Swirl coarse salt and ice around the base of a narrow-neck decanter to loosen mineral deposits, and then rinse.


To remove residue, pour 1/2 cup warm water and 1/3 cup baking soda into the jar. Run blender 30 seconds; rinse.

Glass Baking Dish

Sprinkle coarse salt on stuck-on areas, rub with a damp sponge, and rinse to remove food remnants.

Coffee Grinder

Pulverize uncooked white rice in the grinder to pick up lingering grounds. This works for spice grinders, too.
