To keep your home clean and healthy, you need to keep your kitchen clean. On the other hand, stubborn dirt and grease can be difficult to remove, even after several cleanings. This is where a thorough kitchen cleaning comes in handy. Here we’ll show you how to give your kitchen a deep cleaning by checking each item on your list.

1. Kitchen cleaning

If you want your kitchen to be free of dirt, grease and bacteria, it’s time for a thorough cleaning. This means tackling all your equipment and cleaning every surface. If you want your kitchen to stay clean and your appliances to last a long time, you need to give it a good scrubbing every few months.

First things first

Before a thorough cleaning can be carried out, all necessary materials must be collected and prepared for the kitchen.

  5. Vinegar or white
  6. Fabric made of microfiber

Closet and drawer organization

Organize your drawers and closets every chance you get. Throw away perishable food, remove unnecessary cooking utensils and rearrange your kitchen so everything is easily accessible.

3. Cleaning equipment

Microwaves, ovens and refrigerators are three of the most common kitchen appliances that can become dirty over time. The appearance and functionality of these devices will improve with a thorough cleaning.

Make sure all shelves and drawers are empty before removing food from the refrigerator. Mix baking soda with water to remove odors and stains from interior surfaces. Disinfect the door handles and wipe the exterior surfaces with a damp cloth.

To clean the oven, remove the racks and soak them in hot, soapy water. Cleaning the inside of your oven is as easy as using baking soda and water paste or a commercial oven cleaner. Use a brush to remove stubborn stains, then wipe with a damp cloth.

Cooking in a microwave

4. Wipe the surface

To prevent the spread of germs, it is important to clean your countertops, sink and backsplash regularly.

Surface Apply all-purpose cleaner to the countertop and let it sit for a few minutes to remove dirt and grease. Wipe the surface with a microfiber cloth, taking care not to get into cracks and edges.

Put the sink

To remove odors and stains, scrub your sink with a solution of baking soda and water. Rinse well and pat dry with a clean towel to remove any traces of water.

Clean the floor thoroughly

Although often overlooked, kitchen floors still require regular scrubbing to remove dirt, spills and food particles.

Vacuuming and sweeping

First, clean up any debris or dirt on the floor by sweeping or vacuuming. Be sure to wipe down hard-to-reach areas such as baseboards and corners.

Clean up spills

Put some dish soap or floor cleaner in a bucket of hot water. Clean floors with a mop, scrub small areas and rinse regularly. Just let it dry naturally or use a clean towel.

Once you’ve completed your deep cleaning, it’s time to go back and fix any little things you may have missed.

To clean small kitchen appliances such as a toaster, blender or coffee maker, simply use a damp cloth. Follow the manufacturer’s instructions for cleaning removable parts.
