Why You Should be Using Baking Parchment on Your Kitchen Cabinets

I love my kitchen. I love cooking in my kitchen. I love hanging out in my kitchen. It’s only about two-years-old having been installed as part of an extension to my house.

However, I hate cleaning my kitchen, so anything that makes that onerous job that little bit easier gets the thumbs up from me.

So, here we have a quick kitchen tip that will keep your cabinets in tip top order. And all you need is a roll of baking parchment. Simply place some baking parchment on top of your kitchen cabinets (cut to size) and leave. The parchment will collect any dust or grease that collects on top of the cabinet. To clean: remove and replace every few months.

It could not be simpler. Has anyone tried this yet? I’m definitely going to give it a go.

Chalk – the cheap way to dehumidify your closet

If you have problems with humidity in your closet – or indeed dampness that leads to mould developing – why not give this old tip a go? Place a bundle of chalk in your closet (keeping it away from your clothes!), it will act as a sort of dehumidifier and is a lot cheaper than an electric dehumidifier.

There are lots of tips on the internet about home-made humidifiers and I like the ideas presented here. Please note: I have not tried any of these methods, so don’t know if they really work. However, I would probably give at least one of them a try before buying an electric one. It’s up to you.

Let me know how you get on.
