Spend more time making delicious meals and less time cleaning
No matter how much of a pro you are in the kitchen, there's always something new to learn about navigating your way in a cooking corner. After all, it never hurts to have a few more tricks up your sleeve that make life easier. Here are a few new ideas you can try:
1 Keep fruits fresher for a longer time by wrapping them tight in plastic wrap.

If you love baking but you hate cleaning up batter spills, try making an improvised lid for your mixer by poking two holes into a disposable plate. You'll never make a mess on your kitchen counter again.
3 Use vinegar to clean grimy pans
Here's another vinegar hack! Add equal parts of this wonder solution and water into the grimy pan until it boils. Turn off the heat and allow to cool completely before washing as usual with a powerful dish detergent.
4 Reheat food with less mess
