The kitchen is one of the rooms in your home you visit every day and that’s why it ought to be the focus of your house cleaning efforts. The tasks involved aren’t exactly typical and you have to first understand how to cope with them effectively.
The best way to take on this job is to create a routine and follow a certain process to cope with it. The order is of big importance, because it can mean a simple cleaning process, or one that is difficult and requires more time. Just follow the step-by-step guide and you’ll be fine:
– Declutter – every cleaning session should start with decluttering the space first. You will never be successful in cleaning if there are many items that don’t belong in the kitchen. For this reason, clear the counters from cookbooks, magazines, papers and toys that the kids have left there. Only then could the real cleaning begin.
– Fill the sink – fill the sink with hot water and a few drops of dish soap. This will serve to clean some items in need of proper soak: oven racks, the dish rack, crisper drawer and microwave turntable for example.
– Inspect the fridge – take out the food stored there and check if there’s anything past expiry date. Wipe out the stains and spills inside. You might utilise an all-purpose cleaner of vinegar/water mix for this task. Toss any dirty containers in the sink.
– Dust high areas – get a chair or something else to help you gain access to high areas – top of the fridge as well as the countertops. Knock down dust and other debris from these areas. The spoils will later be swept away.
– Clean the cabinets and microwave – by using an all-purpose cleaner, wipe down all cabinets. Don’t forget to pay special attention to pulls, which you touch often. In addition, you need to clean vent grates, frames and hooks. Get a clean cloth and get it to a soapy condition to wipe down the backsplash if there is one in your kitchen.
– Tackle the stovetop – an all-purpose cleaner does well in tackling stains and spoils on the stovetop. Before wiping, let the detergent stay for a few minutes so it can degrease the area and make it easy for cleaning.
– Clean small appliances – small appliances have to be your next target for cleaning. These include: coffee maker, mixer, toaster and more. One detergent with a multi surface formula does very well against accumulated grime. You can leave crumb catchers, drip trays and any of the like in the sink to soak.
– Drain the sink – nearing the end of the kitchen cleaning process, you have to drain the sink and rinse with hot water. Wipe the handles, faucet and any other sink element.
– Wipe the floor – as a final task, clean the floor of all the dust, crumbs and any other debris that have made their way there.
Good job – the kitchen cleaning round is complete and you may park yourself on the sofa. Now you know how to effectively deal with this responsibility.
