Dirty dishes, sticky stovetops, messy microwaves… This week on Ask a Clean Person, host Jolie Kerr is taking on kitchen disasters with guest Kristin Appenbrink, freelance writer and contributing editor at The Kitchn. As it turns out, cooking oil is a big culprit in disgracing anyone’s kitchen and as it becomes airborne, it settles, and attracts dust. But never fear! Jolie and Kristin dish out a few tips and tricks, some eco-friendly and some not, to scrub down the grime. Ever wondered how to clean your cast-iron and stainless cookwear? Tune in for answers and to hear Jolie wax poetic on Crystal Light! This program was brought to you by The International Culinary Center.
