Use plastic and foil liners religiously
From pans to refrigerators to ovens, lining just about anything with plastic or aluminum foil is a lazy person’s key to a tidy kitchen. The secret? Just peel away the liner after use, and your bowl, plate or baking sheet is instantly clean again. (Use plastic wrap for cold foods and aluminum foil or parchment paper for the oven.) Here are 10 easy ways to clean your microwave, stovetop and oven.
Take advantage of your dishwasher
A dishwasher is a lazy person’s dream: without lifting a finger, you suddenly have clean dishes again! But dishwashers can clean so much more than pots and pans; try throwing in shoes, car parts, plastic toys, and tools, too. Some say you can even clean your crusty, Cheeto-stained keyboard in there, as well. (Proceed at your own risk!)
Walk around the house wearing fluffy socks to avoid dusting
Dust mites, no more! Turns out, fluffy socks are a magnet for dust and hair. Walk around with that comfy chenille on your feet for a weekend, and you’ve just dusted the entire house—no effort required.
