Olive oil is healthy in salads and useful in the household! Here is what you can clean perfectly with it, without other special solutions

Olive oil is not only a healthy type of oil that we use in cooking, but also a great cleaning agent that can remove stains and grease. We detail below five things from the kitchen that you can easily clean using just a cloth and a little olive oil.

Stainless steel appliances

You can clean the grease from the stainless steel with the help of vinegar, but after that you can wipe the surfaces with a paper towel or a cloth on which you put very little olive oil (or other oils, such as coconut oil), for extra shine.

Leather chairs

With the help of olive oil (or other cold-pressed oils, such as walnut oil), you can restore the color and luster of leather seats and more. You can use this trick even for your favorite leather shoes. All you have to do is put a little olive oil on a soft cloth and gently wipe the leather objects.

Wooden choppers

Olive oil also maintains wood very well. You can mix it with lemon juice (one measure of lemon juice to two measures of oil) and you can use the resulting solution to clean wood choppers, tables or chairs.

Cast iron pans

If your food has stuck to the cast iron pan and you don't have any lemons on hand to clean it, you can scrub with coarse salt and olive oil. Thus, you will remove any traces of dirt and you will keep the surface of the pan seasoned.

Silver objects

Did you know that silver objects get harder to get dirty if they are greased with a layer of oil?

Put a little olive oil on a cloth and wipe the silverware.

How to choose the best olive oil. 5 things you need to know

A good olive oil makes a difference in the kitchen, so invest carefully in one. It is important, first of all, where you buy it, and then it is good to take into account a few tricks.

1. What should it taste like
An extra-virgin olive oil must have a fruity aroma. What exactly does that mean? Simon Field, a specialist in the field, explains: you have to think about the taste and smell of fresh fruit. A good oil can also have a bitter or spicy taste, two characteristics that denote freshness and polyphenol content.

2. Choose the right bottle
When looking for an olive oil, avoid assortments that are sold in light bottles. Instead, choose the darkest ones, which protect the oil from light and keep it fresh longer.

3. Check the data on the package
Most olive oils have a date written on the bottle, which you should check for two reasons: first, to see the year of production - make sure it is produced in the current year or the year before (whichever is more close to the date of manufacture, the fresher and better the oil, then check its shelf life and do not buy an oil that has an expiration date of more than two years.

4. How do you know it's a top olive oil
Read the label carefully, and if you find the inscription "Protected Designation of Origin (PDO)" or "Protected Geographical Indication (PGI in Italian), it is a good sign.

5. Do not buy it in large quantities
Because it is a perishable food, it is best to buy a little, more often.
