A spoonful of sugar can sweeten up a day, but if it accidentally spills into sugar crumbs then it can really sour your morning as well.
There are many easy steps you can follow to clean up sugar spills around the house. In this blog, we’ll talk about a few such examples:
Start with a Dry Sweep
Grab a broom or a handheld brush and gently sweep the affected area.
Be thorough and make sure you remove as many crumbs as possible. This will prevent the sugar from spreading further depending on where you spilled it.
Dissolve with vinegar
Vinegar is a versatile cleaning agent that can effectively dissolve sugar and leave surfaces sparkling clean.
Create a mixture of equal parts vinegar and water in a spray bottle. Spray the solution onto the sugar-crusted area and let it sit for a few minutes.
The vinegar will help break down the sugar, making it easier to wipe away.
Use a Damp Cloth or Sponge
A damp cloth or sponge can be used to gently wipe surfaces with sugar crumbs on them.
Dampening the cloth or sponge will help to dissolve the sugar and make it easier to remove. But make sure they’re not too wet, as excessive moisture can damage certain surfaces.
Pay close attention to areas where sugar might have melted, such as countertops or floors near ovens or stovetops.
Finish with a Thorough Rinse
Once you’ve successfully eliminated the sugar crumbs, it’s important to give the affected areas a thorough rinse.
This step is especially crucial for surfaces that typically come into contact with food, such as kitchen countertops or dining tables.
Rinse the affected and treated areas pat the area dry with a clean towel or allow it to air dry naturally. Do this as often as necessary to get rid of sugar crumbs for good.
