Childproof Kitchen?

One of the topics we feel is important to talk about is how dangerous kitchens can be when you have children playing around. Considering  children walk on a ground level you will need to store away toxic cleaning products, garbage bins and any sharp items that can cause harm.

Here we put together a few tips on how to turn your kitchen childproof.

Childproofed hob top

Your hob can be extremely dangerous when children try to reach the hot surface, although the hob tends to be higher than children can reach, it’s always a risk leaving it unprotected.

If you have an electrical hob try getting into the habit of using the back hot plates instead of the front ones. Most of the electric hobs nowadays have a lock button that needs to be pressed before switching off the hot plates, making it safer.

However, if you have a gas stove you will need to be more careful with the stove knobs. The most secure way to keep your children away from accidents is to remove the stove knobs as soon as you finish cooking as most of the stove knobs are easily removable coming straight off when pulled. If you want to be extra safe or you don’t like the idea of having knobs laying around the kitchen risking losing them, you can opt by getting stove knob covers. This is especially useful when the stove knobs are by the front of the appliance instead of beside the hot plates.

 

 

Childproofed Dishwasher and Microwave:

Children love playing with microwaves, buttons that beep and a plate that spins around, it seems like it is one of their favourite toys.

To avoid your children opening up your microwave and dishwasher in mid-cycle and having to double wash your crockery you can obtain childproof straps.

Childproof straps are particularly useful around the kitchen, the adhesive bottom can get a good grip to your cabinets and almost any type of appliance .

Also keep in mind that having child locks spread around your kitchen don’t necessary mean it’s completely safe to leave your child unsupervised in the kitchen.

Having guests over can also mean they forget to lock the straps back in.

The best way to keep your kitchen as childproofed as possible is to get into the habit of:

  • Keep cleaning products and garbage bins out of reach. Store them in an upper cabinet.
  • On your dishwasher place your knives downwards. In case your child does manage to open the dishwasher or while loading it avoids them grasping the sharp end or being poked.
  • Don’t keep items over the edge of cabinets or worktops as they can be pulled and fall over.
  • Keep the kitchen floor swept and clean. If you have pieces of food laying around the floor your child might put it on the month.
  • Store potentially dangerous items such as cutlery and sharp utensils on an out-of-reach drawer or cabinet.
Idea:
A way of keeping children from getting themselves into danger is to keep them occupied with something else. If you buy animal magnets and stick them to the bottom of your fridge your child just might get entertained with them while you do the cooking.
Children cooking activities is also a good way of keeping them engaged and out of trouble.
Remember that there are 1001 childproof solutions out on the market to make you lock, buffer and cover all the potential dangers in your kitchen.
As much as you want to protect your children from getting harmed the solution is not on childproofing every single appliance(as this can also become extremely annoying for adults).
Stick with only a few latches and try putting the tips above into practice. If you know you’ve stored away all the child harming products then your mind will be at ease.

 

 

How to keep your kitchen organised

kitchen_organisation

We all struggle to keep our kitchens tidy and neat…

With all the rushing around on weekdays we see ourselves obligated to tidy up the kitchen cabinets on the weekends.

Here are some easy tips for an orderly kitchen!

Tip #1  Group your items

Start by Emptying all your cabinets and drawers and deciding which products you use more frequently, then group them together in  quick-access deep drawers or cupboards.

Tip #2 Hang cooking utensils vertically 

Instead of having all your utensils rammed into a drawer try hanging them on the vertical by hanging a rack on the countertop. This way not only you can find utensils quicker you free up an extra drawer.

Tip #3 Make usage of containers 

Containers are an excellent way to organise your cabinets, by storing your items into different sized containers you can avoid having loads of different packagings laying around your kitchen and it will also give a stylish look to your kitchen.

When transferring your products into containers or perhaps mason jars don’t forget to label them. Labelling will save you loads of time looking for ingredients in your cabinets or pantry.

 

Organise your cabinet by product type

 

Tip #4 Try to keep lids and containers together 

Reserve one of the drawers to store all the containers and respective lids. Nothing is more frustrated that not finding the lid to the right container.

Tip #5 Keep products with the closest expiring date on the front!

What we all tend to do is buy new products and when storing them pushing the others down to the back of the cabinet, well that’s not a particularly good idea! Then when we realise all the other products gone past the expiring date… always try to keep the oldest products on the front and store the new ones behind.

                            Clever Idea!!

Hang corkboards on the inside of your cabinet door to take advantage of every bit of space.

You can hand a corkboard on the inside of your cabinets so they don’t look as bare and use it to pin recipes, notes or even your shopping list!

These autonomous vacuum cleaners are growing in popularity as it reduces household cleaning time. With rechargeable batteries and long lasting hours of performance they are becoming extremely sophisticated.

Miele has launched their very first own robot vacuum cleaner back in 2014,Scout RX1. The brand offers the same features as it competitors but with a more extended battery life and sensors that map where it has to clean.

Between the features, Scout XR1 has a smart Navigation system which allows it to clean in parallel lines throughout the room, an extended battery life that lasts up to 120 minutes at a time without needing to be recharged.

Miele also took time investing in a furniture protected system and a smart corner cleaning setting so obstacles can be avoided and prevents it from getting stuck in furniture and walls. Scout RX1 is able to recognise objects in the path and clean the surroundings.

The corner mode allows Scout RX1 to reach edges and difficult corners where the dust tends to build up.
