I’m a huge fan of the Misto, an oil dispenser with a spray nozzle. It’s just like Pam only it’s refillable and you can control the type of oil used. These days I’ve been using grapeseed oil for its neutral flavor and high smoke point. I use it for everything—whether preparing sweet or savory.  However, from time to time, it will get clogged. Unscrew the device and place the nozzle in hot water to soak. Rinse and dry and you should be back in working order.

Ditch your chemical cleaning products and pick up a handle of cheap vodka at your corner liquor store. Put it in a spray bottle diluted with a little water and go to town on anything (except for wood) in your kitchen. Vodka is naturally antibacterial and non-toxic. Caked on grime on the stove? Vodka. Scratches all over the sink? Vodka. Hot pepper oil on your hands? Vodka. It burns through everything safely. It works a lot like vinegar except it has no scent. Yay! No more chemicals in the kitchen!
