Chances are, you don’t think too much about your knife block. You pull out a serrated number, slice a bagel, then go about your day. But over the months and years, that guy can actually collect a lot of dirt, crumbs and germs (especially if you’ve ever been guilty of slipping the knife back in without washing it). Here’s the easiest way to clean yours. 

Step 1: Turn on your Dustbuster. 

Step 2: Run the Dustbuster over the knife block slats.

Step 3: Behold as all sorts of gross crap gets sucked up out of the knife block’s horrifying depths.

Step 4: Long for a simpler time when you didn’t know what was hiding in your knife block.
