1. Remove the clutter
You need to first sort through the pile of rubbish in your kitchen including the newspapers, toys, etc. which don’t belong in the kitchen and keep them in a separate basket. Throw any food item which has gone bad and makes sure there is not a single item left on the floor or the countertops.
2. Put the dishes in the sink
Then, gather all your dirty dishes and put them in the sink with a soap solution so that while you clean the kitchen, the soap solution can loosen the dirt from your dishes.
3. Spray the countertops
Next is to spray your countertops and stovetops with a cleaning solution so that it does its job while you clean the remaining part of the kitchen.
4. Clean your fridge
Now you need to empty your fridge of any unnecessary food items or anything that has gone bad. Make sure that you have only good or required food items in the fridge and throw everything else into the trash can.
5. Clean the top of the kitchen
Now, start cleaning from the top of the kitchen. Clean the ceilings and the top of the doors. You can use long-handled dusters of vacuums to do this job. Don’t worry about the floor getting dirty as you will clean it in the end.
6. Clean your microwave and cabinets
Then, clean your microwave from the inside and the outside and wipe down the upper cabinets with a damp cloth.
7. Wipe down the countertops
Now, you need to wipe down your countertop and stovetop which was earlier sprayed with a cleaning solution and make sure that there are no stains left behind.
8. Clean the vertical surfaces
Once you have cleaned all of those surfaces, it is time to clean the kitchen tools and equipment which have a vertical surface, like the refrigerator’s surface, microwave’s surface, oven, and so on. Make sure you clean the handles and the outside properly.
9. Clean the lower cabinets
Then, you need to wipe clean the lower cabinets and drawers with the help of a warm soapy solution.
10. Wash the dishes
Once every surface is cleaned, it is time to wash your dishes and clean your sink. Rinse your sink with water and let it dry.
11. Empty your trash bin
Throw all the trash outside in the trash container and clean your trash basket once before putting a new trash bag inside.
12. Clean the kitchen floor
Finally, it is time to dust the floor and then mop it with a damp mop. Once you have done this, you will notice that your kitchen looks very clean and tidy today.
