Love to cook or spend time in your already green kitchen, but want some more green ideas? Check out Martha Stewart’s Website for more tips and ideas. Below are a few of the tips:
Say Yes to Convection – Because it continually circulates heated air, thereby reducing cooking time, convection uses 20% less energy on average than a conventional oven.
Green Dish Washing Liquid – For greasy pots and pans, try scouring with salt. For burned saucepans, fill the pan half full with water, spoon in baking soda, let it soak overnight, and bring to a boil.
Unclog Your Sink Naturally – Don’t worry, it sounds more complicated than it actually is. Boiling water converts baking soda to sodium carbonate, a more effective drain cleaner. Pour 1 cup of baking soda down the drain, followed by 3 cups of boiling water, and let science take over. It’s a much safer choice than commercial drain cleaners, which can harm skin, eyes, lungs, and the water supply.
Fill Up the Freezer – The more full it is, the less energy it uses to keep food frozen.
Try Reusable Towels – Paper towels cause waste, even if you stick to the recycled brands. Microfiber towels grip dirt and dust like a magnet and don’t let go. After use, toss the towels into the laundry and reuse over and over.
Hopefully these tips can help you out in your kitchen but also give insight into the many ways to go green.
