The kitchen is one area of the home that generally needs the most consistent attention. In the kitchen, it’s not just about tidy but clean is always the order of the day. Here’s our quick guide to keeping your kitchen clean and looking and operating at its best:
Cleaning as you go
One of the simplest ways for keeping on top of kitchen chaos is to clean as you go. This means packing away items as soon as you’re finished with them and stacking the dishwasher or washing up as you go.
Pre-treat the stove top, oven, pots and baking dishes
Before sitting down to enjoy your dinner, get in the habit of spraying any baked-on stains or spills and soaking pots and pans so they have time to break down. They will be much easier to clean.
Clean benchtops and cabinets
Once meals are devoured and all surfaces are free of clutter, grab your microfibre cloth or spray n’ wipe and give the benchtops and sink a thorough wipe down. Bacteria can live in moist environments so finish off with a quick buff using a dry cloth. And don’t forget to spot clean any cabinets that may have food splatters too.
Keep your fridge clean
Every day or so remove items from the fridge that are no longer useful. Remove anything that is out of date and be sure to reorganize your vegetable crisper every few days to ensure the longevity of remaining produce. Wipe down the shelves and pop in a box of baking soda at the back of the fridge to capture any odours.
Cleaning floors & skirting
The finishing touch for your kitchen clean should be vacuuming the floor to clear away any loose food, dust or pet hair. Empty the bins and if needed, give the kitchen a quick clean with the mop/steam mop. You’ll be surprised what a difference mopping the kitchen floor after a big clean makes to your room’s overall appearance.
