Always messy and never neat? The kitchen is often the heart of the house, where we use the maximum time. How to clean it? Where to start? Quickly adapt a few daily habits, and you will never need to resort to great means again!
The kitchen is the room dedicated to the preparation of meals, and therefore hygiene must be irreproachable to avoid food poisoning and ensure good conservation of food.
1. The Dishes
If you don’t have a dishwasher, attempt to do it after every meal and invest in a dish rack so you can store it correctly and develop visible satisfaction. If you have a dishwasher, use the knife edge of loading it up behind every food and clearing it before you start preparing.
Another Tip: Learn to use downtime when planning feeds to rinse utensils, knives and boards. Don’t forget to wash the sink from time to time: use the old dish sponge one last time to clean it with white vinegar and a little baking soda, then throw in the sponge.
2. The Work Plan
Hold a small spray jar with white vinegar nearby and sprinkle the worktops before cleaning them with a clean microfiber. If they are very dirty, you can sprinkle a little bit of baking soda on them and use a dab of dish soap or black soap.
3. The Baking Sheet
Like the dishes and the worktop, cleaning the hotplates is a must after a meal if we want to check dirt from becoming encrusted and more complicating the cleaning.
- A drop of dishwashing liquor and a few rinses before cleaning with microfiber is enough to keep them spotless.
- In case of burnt or stuck debris, add a little white Meudon to the drop of dishwashing liquid on your dishcloth. This pottery has a very gentle cutting effect which unclogs without damage. Rinse several times and finish with the microfiber.
- Some grids are dishwasher safe, unhook them and soak them in a bowl with boiling water, black soap and soda glasses.
Wipe a microfiber cloth over the top of the cupboards to rid them of the dust that has accumulated. This method must be done before cleaning the tiles and cupboards themselves. Then empty the cabinets one after the other. Take chance to throw on what is out of date and highlight the burden of funds to be finished. Using a cloth or dishcloth slightly damp with a drop of dish soap or black soap, clean the inside of the cupboards and the doors. Rinse and polish with a microfiber. If the furniture is oily, add a little white vinegar or household liquor.
5. The Fridge
For quick cleaning of the fridge, run a clean cloth soaked in white vinegar over the shelves. When clean your fridge completely, empty the fridge and remove racks, bins and racks that you will wash both in the dishwasher or by hand in foamy water. Then clean with a clean cloth and dipped in white vinegar. Do not forget the holes, the handle, the gate and the gasket all around. Clean with clean water and wipe dry dry cloth.
6. The Microwave
Start by removing the crumbs. For more thorough cleaning, place in the microwave a bowl containing water with lemon juice or white vinegar. Activate the microwave to bring this liquid to a boil. Then move a dry cloth over the spray that has grown. Don’t ignore the turntable and the door.
7. Garbage Cans
To keep them the most beautiful, remember to clean them from time to time! Take advantage of trash day, to use a dishcloth that has already been used well before throwing it away. White vinegar and a drop of dish cleanser, clean the surface of the dustbin, the lid, and the middle. Line the base with newspaper to check residue from sticking. You will suddenly just have to throw away the newspaper the next time you clean it.
8. The Kitchen Floor
Adopt a small broom with a long handle to sweep up crumbs every night and once a week, mop. Hot water with a knob of dish soap, black soap or any other detergent is sufficient. You can also add a little white vinegar or household alcohol to thoroughly degrease and shine the floors.
