When it comes to your kitchen, it’s the centerpiece of your house, serving as both literally and metaphorically a food source. The kitchen is often seen as the first step toward a clean house because of this. Cleaning our kitchens goes a long way in achieving mental peace for those who find it difficult to keep our entire homes in pristine condition.
What to wash, how to tidy it, then in what sequence are all laid out here. But first, here are a few pointers to help you get the most out of your kitchen cleaning.
Make sure your counters are free of debris
You can’t adequately clean around garbage that doesn’t fit in the kitchen. The best place to begin decluttering is in the back of the kitchen or on a single part of the counter. The house cleaning basket approach could be a good idea at this point. Putting stuff away one by one will just make you more distracted. Remove them off the counter as soon as you’re done using them. After all the countertops have been cleared, or the kitchen has been thoroughly cleaned, you may place everything where they belong.
Wash dishes and clean the washer
You may avoid blockages by beginning with empty locations to put the fresh, clean dishes, regardless of how neat and tidy your kitchen is to start with or whether there are some lingering unclean dishes or pans. Dirty dishes that remain in the washer should be washed first, then put in a load of dishes and run the washer to finish the cleaning. Disinfect anything lying around, and even the water bottles usually left on the countertop beside the sink.
Clean the refrigerator and cabinets’ tops with a soft cloth
It doesn’t matter what area you’re cleaning if you tidy from top to bottom. Cleaning the next surface area will ensure that dirt and dust don’t accumulate. Start with cleaning your kitchen’s lighting, refrigerators, and cupboards’ tops, then proceed to the lower parts of the room.
Remove and discard any food waste
Cleaning small appliances should be the next priority. Clean and polish your oven, coffee machine, toaster, microwave, or stand mixer while you can. You wouldn’t want that to take too long, or you’ll be wasting your time. Begin by cleaning the interiors—removing particles from household appliances, and cleaning your coffee maker with a lemon cycle. Cider may be used to clean the interior of your oven. Wipe down along the outside of each little gadget to complete the task. Use a soft cloth moistened with a peroxide mixture or a little all-purpose cleaner to wipe down your counters and appliances.
Ensure that everything else on your countertops is well cleaned
You might have a pan of oils or an oiled rack on the countertop and other frequently used kitchen items. Please make certain that they are free of odors. Think about what you’ve been putting on the countertops that you can always place in a cupboard or cabinet instead of on the countertops. Also, this is an excellent time to clean your dry mat and dish rack.
Make sure your counters are spotless by wiping them down
When you’ve finished washing the dishes, dusting, and wiping down all of your household appliances, it’s time to lavish some attention on your countertops. Divide your countertops and remove everything, even the items that reside there, like your cutlery, frying oils, and more. A pan scraper may remove crumbs stuck between the worktop and oven. Use a soft cloth and a mild cleanser suitable for the type of countertops you have to give your countertops a thorough wipe down. To make the countertops sparkle, use a dry buffing cloth. Continue with the next segment of the counter in turn.
Wipe off any cockroach killer gel, and fly traps you may have placed.
Thoroughly clean the sink
It’s fairly simple to thoroughly clean your sink. Rinse it off first. Make careful to clean all the cracks and crevices with a thorough surface cleaner after using an abrasive cleaner. Disinfect your faucet, sponge hooks, and dishware by scrubbing them down. Everything should be washed thoroughly. To finish, run a hot tap and add a cup of bleaching to the liquid in the sink. Drain after ten minutes of letting it settle.
