It’s winter, and that means the holidays are coming! It’s a special time when family and friends are coming over and gathering together. Everyone gathers together for a traditional meal, desserts and wonderful appetizers! Which means that your kitchen has to be ready…
Entertaining takes a toll on your kitchen! This is where the magic happens and after the holidays you can see why you may need to schedule some time for a deep clean. You can do this yourself or you can hire a professional company. Before the holidays it’s a great time to make sure the kitchen is clean and organized and then once the holidays are over you will want to do this again to keep it organized.
Inventory your tupperware, spices and condiments. Clean your oven, hood fan, fridge, microwave and cupboards.
Whether it’s burnt on grease making your stove top a mess, or a baking cupboard that looks like it’s seen better days, even a dishwasher that doesn’t run as well as it used to, now is the time to get your kitchen back to clean and organized. And this can be a challenge!
Start with a list. Prioritize what needs to be done and make sure that you have the necessary cleaning products. There are great tips online on how to make this job run as smoothly as possible.
Follow the directions on how to use all cleaning products properly, particularly if you’re using chemical products. Always read and follow the instructions on any cleaning products you buy and test the cleaning products if you are using a new one.
Stock up on paper towels if needed and microfiber cleaning cloths are also a great option.
Scrub brushes come in handy especially with hard to remove dirt and grease and a toothbrush works great for those hard to reach areas.
There are many great natural cleaning products that you can use that are also cost efficient. Vinegar and baking soda work great! Baking soda removes tough stains in kitchen sinks and can help to make it shiny and vinegar makes a great cleaner and disinfectant.
Research storage options to help to keep things organized. There are many available options that are very cost efficient.
Once your kitchen is organized and deep cleaned you can move on to another room and start again… Your house will be organized in no time!
