What are the 5 steps of cleaning the kitchen?

Getting rid of dust and dirt from your kitchen is as important as the rest of your housework. Just as you want to be detailed when freshening up your cozy living room with the right tools, tidying up a neglected bedroom, and cleaning the bathroom from top to bottom, you need to be thorough when tackling the kitchen.

Follow these 5 steps to ensure a flawless room:

1. Declutter 

The first thing you should do is declutter your kitchen. Go through the ridge, freezer, cabinets, and drawers, and remove any items you no longer use. Also, get rid of expired food before it develops an overpowering odor that’s hard to deal with. Once you take care of the mess, you’ll be able to clean each surface more easily.

2. Dust 

The area is now clutter-free but don’t grab your mop just yet. You still need to dust the place because it interferes with various cleaning products and minimizes their effectiveness. Start at the top and work your way to the bottom, making sure your door frames, stovetop, cabinet tops, and countertops are dust-free.

3. Vacuum and wipe down the inside of cabinets

You should now turn your attention to the inside of your cabinets. Vacuum any crumbs and lingering dust or wipe them with a cloth. From there, rinse the cloth and dip it in some soapy water before giving the cabinets a final wipe-down.

4. Freshen up appliances 

Appliances are the centerpiece of your kitchen, which is why you want them to be pristine. To rid them of impurities, you can use a sponge or cloth combined with a suitable cleaning agent. Here are a few options for each device:

  • Oven: ½-cup of baking soda and 3 tablespoons of water 
  • Fridge: ½-cup of vinegar, 1 cup of clear ammonia, and ¼-cup of baking soda
  • Microwave: 2 cups of water and 2 tablespoons of white vinegar 
  • Dishwasher: 1 cup of white vinegar placed on the top rack 
  • Sink: 1 cup of baking soda, 1 tablespoon of hydrogen peroxide, and ¼-cup of castile soap

5. Sweep and mop the floor 

By the time you get to the floor, there will already be lots of crumbs and dust from wiping different surfaces. Sweep or vacuum the area to clear them all away. For hard-to-reach areas, use a brush and a long-handled dustpan or a vacuum extension wand. 

From there, fill a bucket with water and dip your mop. Wring it out to remove excess moisture and avoid swishing dirt around the floor. Go back and forth, rinse frequently, and let the surface air dry when you’re done.
