The kitchen might not be the busiest area in our house but it is an area with a regular visitor as we prepare meals for ourselves or for our family. Therefore, maintaining the cleanliness of our kitchen is a must but that doesn’t mean we need to be hard on ourselves to keep everything in order.
Here are some of the kitchen cleaning tips everyone should know to keep the kitchen is hygienically clean and safe.
- KNOW THE NECESSARY CLEANING AGENT YOU SHOULD USE
For non-wooden cupboards, it is safe to use heave-duty cleaners mixed with warm water. Leave the solution for a few minutes especially the greasiest parts. While for the wooden kitchen cabinets, make sure to use lighter cleaning detergents diluted with water. There are oil soap solutions designed for grease and stains on wooden surfaces. It is also helpful to use a microfiber cloth to wipe wooden cabinets to avoid damaging the wooden surface. You can also apply furniture polish to bring out the shine and rejuvenate the look of your wooden cupboards.
- DEAL WITH THE KITCHEN SINK WITH CONFIDENCE
Removing the limescale deposit in your sink can be intimidating or may seem impossible especially when discolouration starts to look too obvious. But believe it or not, some of the best cleaning solutions for our sink issues are inside our kitchen.
Lemon, for example, is one of the best cleaning gear against limescale deposits. Cut your lemon in half and rub it over the surface, leave it for few minutes and then rinse thoroughly with clean water.
Another option is distilled white vinegar. Soak a cloth or paper towel in the distilled white vinegar, wrap it around the taps and leave it for few hours or overnight, then rinse thoroughly with clean water.
- APPLY CLEAN AND GO WHENEVER YOU USE YOUR STOVE, OVEN AND MICROWAVE
To wipe down your hob, oven or microwave after each use may sound pretty basic but not everyone does it. Doing so will help you keep your appliance hygienic and more efficient. Because grease and spillages can ruin not only the taste of your food but they are also considered as fire hazards. If you are too busy to wipe them after each use you can try to put a layer of tin foil below grills or at the bottom of your oven then replace it every few days.
- KEEP YOUR FRIDGE ON CHECK
Make it a habit to clean out your fridge before you go shopping. That way you will avoid hoarding food items that you don’t really consume. Plus it is better to store fresh foods in a clean fridge. Warm water and soap are best to use when you clean drawers and shelve. Avoid strong detergents especially ones with bleach as it can damage your fridge.
