Spring Cleaning in The Kitchen Checklist

by Victoria Baker

It may sound stupid, but you can pre-clean before you begin the actual cleaning. Starting with clean countertops and an open workspace would allow you to properly plan as you go. It’s the ideal way to kick off a project of this size.

1. Do a thorough pre-cleaning

First, do with the latest batch of dirty dishes. They should be washed, dried, and stored.
Remove all unnecessary garbage from the kitchen so that you have enough room to function.
Wipe off the countertops quickly to provide a clean slate and clean the kitchen cabinets.

Now that you have a workspace, the fun will really begin. Choose a point for beginning at the top and making your way down. Since you’ll be uncovering all the built-up grease and grime along the way, the floors can be the last thing you wipe. Mind to remove all curtains and wash them while you function. do the rest. To ensure proper washing, you must remove any speck of dust. Your sinuses will be grateful!

2. Organize and Deep clean

Put on the latex gloves when it’s time to use the soaps and suds. Cabinets and drawers can be the most difficult places to work on. This can be a time-consuming and tedious operation, but when you’re done, you’ll be able to relax knowing you’ve brought your kitchen the respect it deserves.

Small appliances and countertops
Clean the countertops. Wipe off and clean small appliances such as the toaster, coffee machine, and any other things on the table. The sink should be rinsed and disinfected. Be certain that all stains and calcium residues are removed. When you clear out the cabinets, you can reorganize and determine what can be visible and what should be tucked away.

Drawers, cabinets, and a pantry
Wipe down the shelves and go through each area, removing all the contents. Check the labels of goods and spices, and discard those that are out of date. Re-arrange the remaining products and mark them, or re-purpose some storage bins to optimize shelf space. Make a list of what you have and what you’ll need for upcoming shopping trips. 

Large appliances
Wipe off the inside and outside of the oven. Remove the spinning plate from the microwave and scrub it to remove any sticky food or spills. To clear all the burnt-on liquids and crumbs, use the oven’s self-cleaning function or manually clean the interior of the oven. Clean, de-grease, and polish the oven and range’s exteriors (for stainless steel, try buffing with baking flour to get the sparkling shine). Your oven should get expert care at least twice a year. Professional oven cleaning entails disassembling the oven and soaking the doors, shelves, and glass in a dip tank. Wash and deodorize your dishwasher.

Some other things to do
Mind to wipe down any pictures or hanging objects before rehanging the clean curtains. Wipe off the baseboards and the floors. Empty the garbage and clean out the can to get rid of any lingering odors. For a gleaming, refreshed appearance, polish and dust some furniture.
