Spring Cleaning Tips: Start by Organizing Your Coffee Corner
Before you embark on your spring cleaning checklist, you’ve got to get organized. The key to coffee corner and kitchen cleaning is making sure everything is easily accessible.
Storing your K-Cup® pods in a glass container is a simple spring cleaning tip that lets you see what you’ve got on hand. However, if you love having a wide variety of K-Cup® pods, a specially-designed storage solution like the Keurig® Rolling Storage Drawer could be the perfect choice. It fits underneath your Keurig® coffee maker and holds up to 35 K-Cup® pods!
After you’ve organized your pods, it’s time to check any ground coffee or flavourings that you may have in your coffee corner, such as ground cinnamon, chocolate powder or syrups, to make sure they’re still fresh. The freshest ingredients give the most delicious results.
Finally, take a look at your coffee mugs to ensure they’re all in tip-top condition. A chipped or cracked cup has no place in your coffee corner!
Spring Cleaning Tips for a Sparkling & Stain-Free Coffee Corner
Coffee stains: when you think about it, they’re a reminder of moments spent enjoying a perfectly-brewed cup of coffee. But there comes a time when you need to start with a clean slate in your coffee corner. Learn how to remove coffee stains from cups and countertops with these kitchen cleaning tips and tricks.
For coffee-stained tea cups and mugs, we suggest this spring cleaning tip: simply sprinkle in some baking soda and add a little water to form a paste. Then gently wipe away the stains with a sponge or dishcloth.
For coffee rings on butcher block countertops and cutting boards, try cutting a whole lemon in half and squeezing some juice onto the surface. Then use the lemon half to scrub at the stain. Let the juice sit until the stain is gone, rinse the surface with water and dry thoroughly.
