YOU no longer have to spend hours working to clean your kitchen.
Instead, you can slash your cleaning time in half with seven easy tips from Do It On a Dime's cleaning pro, Kathryn Snearly.
CLEAN UNDERNEATH SINK
Snearly said when organizing underneath her sink, she likes to line her cabinets to keep them neat.
Though she said many people use contact paper for lining, she prefers to use peel and stick floor tiles.
"You can actually put these underneath your sinks," she said.
The tiles are easy to apply and are even renter-friendly.

She advised cleaning the surface of the cabinet before sticking down the tiles.
To fill in smaller spaces on the cabinet surface, she said to just measure and cut the tiles to fit the designated area.
She then used caulk from Dollar Tree to seal the cracks between the floor tiles to prevent any water damage from leaks under the sink.
A 10-pack of the floor tiles can be bought on Amazon for just about $13.

Snearly said she uses Murphy Oil Soap (which can be bought on Amazon in a pack of two for about $13), to easily clean her cabinets, whether they're painted, wood, laminate, etc.
She filled up a Dollar Tree bucket with water and a squirt of the soap and then used it to separate her clean mop water from her dirty.
The cleaning pro used the O-Cedar mop to clean her cabinets, which can be bought on Amazon for just about $32.
"It does it so fast it even cleans the molding in your house," she said.
To dry the cabinets, she threw a rag on her Swiffer mop and swiped it across the surfaces.
To help fight stubborn stains, Snearly said she uses LA's Totally Awesome Cleaner, which is about $10 on Amazon.
She then uses a grout scrubber to work the product into the tile.
"Remember when the tile is wet it's going to look a bit darker," she said.
"But after you clean it, it dries perfectly and looks great."
The easiest way to make your kitchen smell better is to clean your oven, according to the cleaning pro.
"I'm talking about pulling your oven out," she said.
She said she uses the SteamShot (about $36 on Amazon) to remove any grime and guck from her oven.
"The SteamShot does really well with sticky residue," she said.
After using the steamer, all you have to do is wipe off the surface with a paper towel.
"You can do this so quickly," she said.
To clean the inside of your dirty, smelly, garbage can, Snearly said you can also use the SteamShot.
Similar to the oven, after cleaning all you have to do is wipe down the surface as no extra products are needed.
RANGE HOOD FILTERS
"If you have range hood filters on the top of your oven, these get dirty SO fast," she said.
She said to take one scoop of LA's Totally Awesome Oxygen Cleaner Powder (about $9 on Amazon) and put it in a gallon of water.
She placed her range hood filters in the water mixture and advised letting them soak for about 30 minutes.
After they soak, she scrubbed them with a scrubber and placed them back in the range hood.
"Works like a charm," she said.
