Roll up your sleeves and let’s get this cleaning started. The first thing on the list is to start the dishwasher. Put all the dirty dishes into it and by the time you are done with the whole cleaning project, it would be finally done with its programme. Then let’s move to the counters. Clear them of anything which should not be there like pens, mail, recipe books and whatever else is standing on your way to apply proper cleaning. Soak a sponge or a cloth into a cleaning solution and wipe down the surface. Simple as that.

Fill the sank with warm water and several drops of detergent (dish soap can work as well). Dip the oven’s racks and trays into it along with the microwave turntable. Let them sit for a couple of minutes till the grease and grime are completely gone. Then rinse them and put them back in place.

Throw away everything from your refrigerator that has already expired. Start to clean the shelves from top to bottom. You can wipe them down with a cloth soaked into a universal cleaning detergent. If there are any food-storage containers which are also dirty you can put them into the filled sink as well.

The golden rule is to always start dusting from the highest areas, remind us Spotless Cleaners London. This way the dirt and debris fall directly on the floor, where they can be easily swept or vacuumed. Move to dusting around the kitchen, cleansing the light fixtures, cabinets and counter tops. Most people forget to clean the top of the refrigerator which is probably one of the dirtiest zones in the kitchen as we can never see it due to that it is too high.

As we use the microwave very often, it tends to get dirty very easily and quickly. Fill up a spray bottle with mix of vinegar and warm water and spread it all over the exterior and interior of the microwave. Next, polish the doors and handles of the cabinets. If there is a backsplash wipe it down with a soapy sponge.

Clean all the small kitchen appliances again with an all-purpose cleaner. Spray the cloth with it and then clean mixers, coffermaker machine, toaster, blender and etc. Get rid of all crumbs or just let them fall on the ground to handle them later. Once you tossed all the expired food, now it would be way much easier to clean the refrigerator. Make sure to clean the handles and the edges which can be most efficiently cleaned with a toothbrush since there are tight spots which are hard to be degrimed.

Clean the lower surfaces and drawers again with a soapy cloth or sponge, or even a paper towel can work. When you are done with dusting and wiping all possible areas, it is high time you drained and rinsed the sink. Wipe the faucet and the handles with warm water.

One of the last things you should do before putting the end of this kitchen cleaning project is to empty all the trash bins and clean the interior before changing the bag. The next step, the final step, is to sweep all of the collected dirt on the ground. Remove furniture and kitchen appliances if necessary. Then vacuum and mop all the floors.

Happy cleaning !

  1. This is an awesome quick guide to cleaning up the mess. I feel so much better when my kitchen is sparkling!my favorite trick is to put vinegar in the microwave for a minute and then wipe it down- gets even the stuck on goop off!!

  2. Out of all the places in the house, I cannot stand my kitchen to be a mess. My only complaint is the dishwasher! There are 6 of us and boy would it make life easier.
