If you have a kitchen, you know how tedious keeping it clean can be. With all the food waste and cooking being done, it’s no wonder that the kitchen gets messy fast. You’re probably aware how important having the proper cleaning tools are. A study mop and broom, a multipurpose cleaner or Clorex disinfecting wipes for stubborn stains, Glad Force Flex garbage bags to ensure food waste is properly disposed of, are all vital to a clean home. So if you want to keep everything from your kitchen floor up to your kitchen cabinets clean, here are some cleaning tips and tricks for you:
1. Use multipurpose cleaners
Using cleaners like Lysol antibacterial kitchen cleaner can be a lifesaver when cleaning up messes as they pop up in your kitchen. Multipurpose cleaners are versatile and are good at cleaning up a wide range of mess. You can save money buying multipurpose cleaners by not buying multiple more specific cleaners.
2. Schedule cleaning weekly
By scheduling yourself to clean the kitchen every week you can make sure it stays clean and doesn’t become dirty to the point of being unmanageable. Kitchens are full of germs and bacteria as well, so it’s important to clean often and kill bacteria before they have a chance to cause problems.
3. Set oven cleaning to automatic overnight
Some ovens have a self cleaning function which causes them to heat up to a very high temperature for anywhere from two to four hours. By getting your oven to clean itself you can save time on cleaning it yourself. Just be sure to remove oven racks and anything else that may be in the oven and wipe down any loose dirt before setting your oven to self clean. You can even run the oven to self clean overnight when you won’t be using it so it will be clean in the morning.
4. Clean up spills as they happen
By cleaning up spills and messes as they happen you can save time by not having to clean them later once they become dried or caked onto the countertops. It also saves money on any expensive deep cleaning that would have to be done to clean the messes once they become stains.
5. Use wax paper to keep high-up surfaces clean
Another kitchen trick you can do to keep your kitchen in top shape, is placing wax paper sheets on top of your kitchen cabinets and fridge. By doing this you can easily remove the dust and grime that builds up on top of those surfaces that we don’t see often and prevent you from having to brush the dust down onto your counters while cleaning.
