6 Fixes for Kitchen Spills and Slip-Ups
Spill That Seeped Under the Oven or Refrigerator
For wooden floors, mix 1/3 cup white vinegar and 1/2 gallon warm water. Note: If your wooden floors are waxed, avoid vinegar and use a waxed-floor cleaner, such as Parsley Plus All Surface Cleaner ($6 for 22 ounces, ecos.com). If your floor is tile or stone, use only plain hot water or a special cleaner, like StoneTech Professional Stone & Tile Cleaner ($7 for a quart, stonetechdirect.com). Dip a microfiber cloth in the mixture, wrap it around a ruler, and slide it under the appliance. Rinse and repeat until the cloth emerges clean.
