It’s best to clean up oil spills in your kitchen drawer without delay to prevent ugly stains. If left unattended, oil spills can also lead to bad odours. These simple steps, including cleaning tips, will help you clean up the oil spill in your drawer with ease.
Step 1: Remove Containers
Remove all the masala containers from your drawer as soon as possible. This will prevent oil stains on the containers and hasten the cleaning process.
Step 2: Spread Paper Towels
Spread a few paper towels to soak up the oil. Make sure you replace the used towels with fresh ones to remove the oil as best as possible.
Step 3: Sprinkle Cornstarch
Sprinkle cornstarch over the affected area of the drawer and let it sit for a few minutes. Then, wipe it away using a clean cloth. Repeat this process a few times.
Step 4: Rub
To get rid of the remaining oil stains, take 3-4 drops of dishwashing gel on a sponge and rub it on the affected part.
Step 5: Wipe
Wipe your drawer with a damp cloth to clean any soapy residue. Then, use a clean, dry cloth to wipe the area again to remove moisture from the drawer. This should also get rid of any unpleasant odours in the drawer from the oil spill.
There you go! Follow these easy steps to rid your drawer of oil stains as well as lingering odours.
If you do not have cornstarch you can use baking soda, salt or flour to soak up the excess oil.
