Cleaning and organizing the kitchen

Deep cleaning of the kitchen

Get busy organizing your kitchen. Focus on having drawers and cabinets clean and well arranged, where chaos usually reigns. By following these tips, it’ll be easier for you to achieve your goals of order and cleanliness.

The golden rule of order

Remember the first and most important rule of order – a place for everything and everything in its place. This seems easy, however, the more spaces that are used, the more difficult they are to maintain.

The kitchen is one of the most used environments in homes. Everything takes place there, from cooking to family get-togethers, so it’s common for the countertop to become a place to leave anything. Try to keep these clear.

Hand in hand with this rule comes the advice not to accumulate. You don’t have to have that many pans, especially if you don’t use them. They only use valuable storage space and incite clutter.

Start with cleaning and organizing the kitchen

The first thing you should do before you start cleaning is to remove everything you have in the cabinets and drawers and leave it all on the counter. Classify the household items by categories and take the opportunity to throw away what is broken and donate everything that you don’t use.

The interiors

Now that you’ve emptied the cabinets, it’s time to get down to business. It will be easier for you to clean their interiors without obstacles in the way.

Clean the shelves and all the sides. We recommend that you first use a dry cloth to remove dust and then a degreaser. Don’t forget to dry the interior well before putting everything back.

Good placement

Perfect cupboard.

Take advantage of the fact that you have taken everything out to do a review and create a method to keep the pantry up to date. The expired packets go in the trash and the food that has a short expiration date should be at the front.

Save tall cabinets for appliances you use less often. Finally, use protectors when storing pots and pans to prevent scratches.

Doors and fronts

Once you have finished with the interiors, it is time to clean the exteriors of the cabinets. To do this, you should look at the material which they are made of. They can be of wood, lacquered, laminated…

There are specific products for each, however, vinegar water works wonders with all of them. Take special care with the areas closest to the stove, since they are more likely to be covered in grease.

Be careful with display cabinets

If you love display cabinets, they’re great in a kitchen as they break the monotony. Glass doors make them a decorative element and, therefore, they must always be perfect.

On the one hand, it’s essential to maintain order inside them, since everything is on show. The glass on the doors should also sparkle, so use a specific product or a natural remedy.

Cleaning and organizing the kitchen is not an easy task, but with a little perseverance and a method like the one we’ve suggested, you can keep it impeccable for longer.
