The kitchen is essentially one of the most heavily trafficked rooms of any household, inevitably prone to harboring dust, bacteria, and filth buildup. As such, keeping your kitchen counter-tops, cabinets, and appliances clean is critical to maintaining the nutritional properties and hygiene of your food. With the cold and dark winter months becoming a bleak memory and the sprightly summer on its way, it is the right time to kick start your kitchen spring cleaning with these simple tips from the experts.
Show your counter-tops some love
While regular wiping will serve to keep the empty spaces of your counter-tops clean, you need to get into the dark corners, within the crevices and below the coffee jars to ensure proper deep cleaning of your kitchen. Depending upon what works best with your particular brand of counter-top, you can scrub it with a solution of a mild soap and water or use homemade cleaning remedies such as vinegar and baking soda to get rid of stubborn stains.
De-clutter the cabinets
The best way to go about this is starting by removing all the items from the cabinets on the kitchen counter-top or floor, and discarding any additional items that you might not have used in over a year or so. Wipe the insides of the cabinet clean with a damp cloth. Reassess your inventory and arrange the items according to the frequency of their usage, with the regular use items placed well within reach at the front.
Clean up your refrigerator
While most people would like to do it more often, refrigerator cleaning is often postponed for until you have absolutely no room for any more storage inside. You can start by retrieving all the items from the fridge and discarding the expired goods in the trash can. Wipe the inside walls and trays with a solution of water and lemon to remove food spill stains and foul odors. Always rinse the jars and cans before returning them to their designated spots inside the fridge.
Scrub the sink
One of the most commonly neglected parts of the kitchen, the sink is a major hotspot for harboring bacteria in your bristle pads, dish soaps, kitchen sponges and so on. It is a good idea to get a small tray to organize your cleaning equipment and prevent them from falling off into the gunk of unwashed utensils in your sink. Scrub the sink with a mild soap solution for best results.
