Cleaning the Kitchen
The kitchen is one of the most used rooms in the home. We cook, eat, and congregate there everyday. All this activity leads to dirt, germs, and messes that need constant cleaning. To make kitchen clean up easier, buy products that can be used on multiple surfaces. For cost and time savings, look for a multi-purpose concentrate that mixes with water to make several bottles of cleaner.
Kitchen cabinets accumulate grease, food, and liquid spills. A mild soap and water solution works fine for most cabinet surfaces including those made from wood, metal, and laminated plastic. Or, try a multi-use kitchen cleaner. Make sure the cleaner is non-abrasive to avoid scratching the surface. Remove greasy buildup on cabinets by using a degreaser.
Use a nonabrasive cleaner for refrigerator doors. Don't forget to wipe fridge door handles. Hands, both dirty and clean, use the door handle daily so it needs to be cleaned regularly. Continue kitchen clean up with a multi-purpose cleaner on the stove, sink, and countertops. Keep your degreaser spray handy for greasy spots on these areas.
For those without a self-cleaning oven, oven cleaning can be unpleasant. Reduce the elbow grease needed to tackle this chore with a foam oven cleaner. The self-scouring action of the foam cuts through oven messes to make clean up easier. Oven cleaner also works on tough spills and baked-on food on grills, baking dishes, and stove tops.
Keep the kitchen floor in good condition by sweeping and mopping regularly. Use a mild cleaner made for your floor type when mopping. Clean the inside and outside of the kitchen garbage can to eliminate germs and odors. Spray on a kitchen cleaner and wipe with a paper towel.
For appliances, use a multi-purpose kitchen cleaner. Pots, pans, and baking dishes with stubborn, baked-on food may need a scouring pad. Buy stainless steel coiled pads that can handle indoor cookware as well as the outdoor grill.
Treat area rugs in the kitchen like those elsewhere in the house. Spray on a rug or carpet cleaner and vacuum. Clean up spills on the rug with a spray spot/stain remover.
Eliminate kitchen cooking odors with natural plant-based extracts. Look for a long lasting air freshener that leaves a fresh, clean scent.
There's a lot of stuff in the kitchen but cleaning it is not difficult. A good, multi-purpose product that cleans and disinfects can be used on almost everything including the kitchen sink.
