The kitchen is often the room we spend the most time in. With all the cooking and eating happening, things can quickly get messy. Although you clean your kitchen regularly, a good deep-clean every so often helps tremendously.
Here are some steps to make the process more manageable so that you can finally start!
Before you tackle any deep cleaning in your kitchen, make sure you’ve finished all the basic tasks so that nothing gets in the way. Wash the dishes lying around in your sink, put them away, take out the trash, and clear the countertops. You also want to check that you have all the necessary cleaning supplies. Make sure you have cleaning gloves, a duster, surface wipes, an all-purpose cleaner, cleaning cloths, and anything else you might need. You don’t want to have to stop halfway through because you don’t have your supplies.
Now that it’s time to start, the best way to tackle deep-cleaning your kitchen is to break it down into sections. Consider the fridge, freezer, cabinets, pantry, and drawers as their own separate, small tasks. Once you’ve finished one area, move on to the other. Often, knowing where to start is the hardest part. It always feels easier when you have smaller, more manageable tasks rather than one generic, overwhelming task.
