Pantry Cleaning Tips

1. Put anything you don’t need (non-food related) in clutter buckets first (these are simply empty boxes/containers you fill in order to free up space in a hurry).
2. With all non-essential items out you can then clean shelves by sprinkling them with bicarb soda and vinegar and rubbing with pantyhose.
3. If you have a problem with pantry moths, simply place dry bay leaves every 60 centimetres along the shelves, or you may use bay oil and rub along the shelves with a pair of pantyhose. Note: The leaves must be pungent because they contain lauric acid which repels moths and stops them breeding. The leaves can also be crushed on ants nests to repel the colony.
4. Next, clean the floor by covering a broom head in pantyhose and sprinkling it with bicarb soda and a squirt of white vinegar and giving the floor a good rub.
5. After this, sort your food into logical groupings ie: proteins together, carbohydrates together, sweets together and so on – that way you’ll know where all your foods belongs and won’t have to mess everything up searching for what you're after.
6. Make sure all contents of opened packets are immediately transferred into containers, or the packets folded 3 times and then closed with a bulldog clip.
