Maintaining your kitchen clean keeps the dirt, smells and ants away. A wipe down here and there and a bit of brooming won’t solve anything long-term. Cleaning your kitchen the proper way takes a little bit more of attention to detail and going above and beyond. After you are finished you will feel very accomplished and feel the soothing satisfaction of having your kitchen 100% clean.
Things you will need are:
- All-purpose cleaner
- Clean cloths
- Abrasive cleaner
- Microfiber cloth
First things first, clear the counters. Papers, boxes, utensils and things of that sort can clutter your counters throughout the week. Put things away or throw them accordingly.
Hot Water and Soap
Fill the sink with hot water and soap so you can toss things like racks from your oven, grill and dishes as well as the dish from your microwave.
The third step is to clean out the refrigerator. Empty out all the old stuff and use an all-purpose cleaner to clean the shelves and holders.
Dust doesn’t only accumulate in your living room. To get rid of all the dust from your kitchen completely, target upper corners, the exterior of the sink, top of cabinets, top of the refrigerator and light fixtures.
The cabinets are where things can get messy with crumbs and such, and attract the unwanted insects. Hit the top cabinets first and leave the lower cabinets for last
Spray your microwave with an all-purpose cleaner and let it sit for 3 minutes and then wipe it all off with a clean cloth.
To begin on the stove, spray an all-purpose cleaner and let it sit for about 5 to 10 minutes and then with a clean cloth wipe off all the grease and pieces of food.
Keeping your sink clean eliminates any unwanted odors. First drain your sink and rinse it with hot water. Apply an abrasive cleaner and wipe with a microfiber cloth. Finish off by wiping the faucet and handles.
The Other Kitchen Items
The coffeemaker and toaster are easy items to let time pass on without cleaning. If you don’t forget to clean these items on every kitchen cleaning you are prolonging their life as well as keeping the quality of your coffee and toast high.
The Final Steps
Empty out all the trash. Sweep the floors and mop.
This is the right way to clean your kitchen effectively.
