Most people agree that the kitchen is the heart of the home. It’s the place to prepare a great meal and spend some quality time with your family. But, that is also the place most prone to mess, so you might need a few tips for keeping your kitchen sparkling clean. To ensure your kitchen gets a deep clean, gather all of your supplies in one place. Storing the cleaning supplies in the room you use them will make your job much easier. Here are a few more tips that will help you keep your kitchen sparkling.
If you have a dishwasher, doing the dishes shouldn’t be a problem. However, you might need to give your pots and pans a thorough scrub. Then you can move on to #cleaning the sink itself and, in order to keep your disposal smelling fresh, toss half a lemon down it.
Now that your sink is clean and all the dirty dishes are in the dishwasher, move on to the countertops and all of the kitchen surfaces. Gather everything that doesn’t belong in the kitchen to make this job easier. Don’t forget the walls and the exterior of your cupboards. Do it thoroughly and you won’t have to do such a deep cleaning for some time.
A deep cleaning involves getting inside your #appliances. Start with the refrigerator – empty it completely and wipe each shelf. To neutralize odors, keep an open box of baking soda in it. To clean your microwave, microwave some water with lemon for a couple of minutes to soften grime and then wipe it with a cotton towel. Soak oven racks in warm, soapy water and wipe the oven thoroughly.
Shake off your #floor mats and give the floor a good sweeping. Find a good floor cleaner that can safely break down grease, food and dirt. Pay attention to the spaces below your sink and oven.
