How should you clean spilled cooking oil in your kitchen?

While working in the kitchen there are many times when we face trouble in the kitchen, one of those times is when the cooking oil gets spilled. It is very common that the oil gets spilled no matter how carefully we work and cleaning of the spilled oil is found difficult by many and if you don't know the proper method of cleaning up the oil it turns into a bigger mess than before.

House Cleaning Bothell has some tips on how you can clean up the spilled oil with ease.

1. Soak up the excess oil with paper towels 

When house cleaning, there are many times that the oil gets spilled in the kitchen no matter how careful we are while handling it. Now since the oil has been spilled it is no time to panic about. So instead of thinking what to do, grab some paper towels or newspaper and lay it over the spilled oil. Use dabbing motion to soak up the oil, don't wipe it or else you will spread it further. During house cleaning, if a glass bottle has been broken then collect the pieces in a brown paper before tossing them in the bin.

2. Sprinkle cornstarch on the remaining cooking oil 

When house cleaning, after soaking up the oil you will still find some oil of the floor, for removing that oil you can sprinkle generous amounts of cornstarch over the oil and let it sit for a while. The cornstarch will soak up the remaining oil from the surface. 

3. Vacuum the cornstarch 

When house cleaning,once the oil has been soaked up by the cornstarch, you can either use a broom and a dust collector to gather the cornstarch from the floor or you can use a hand held vacuum and clean up the sprinkle cornstarch from the floor.

4, Wipe the surface 

When house cleaning,even after picking up the oil using cornstarch you will still find traces of oil on the floor, for a complete clean floor from the oil you can wash it. During house cleaning, you use some dishwashing liquid and water to clean the residual of the oil from the floor, scrub it using a brush and wash it. To dry the surface then wipe it with a clean mop.

When house cleaning if the oil gets spilled onto your clothes then sprinkle some cornstarch onto the surface,once the cornstarch sets in and soaks up the oil then wash it off as the clothing direction says.
