Even while keeping the kitchen neat and tidy on a daily basis is essential if you want it to always feel wonderful to be in, a more thorough kitchen cleaning once in a while is also recommended. By "regular thorough cleaning," we mean more than just a quick wipe down after dinner, but less than a comprehensive overhaul (wherein you wet the greasy oven hoods and dust your fridge's condenser coils). Cleaning your kitchen this way will leave it appears spotless.
What you should clean, how often you should clean it, and in what sequence are all detailed below. First, however, here are a few pointers for keeping kitchen cleaning quick and efficient.
A Few Things to Remember While Cleaning Your Kitchen At Your Office
For a more satisfying and productive kitchen cleaning experience, keep the following in mind:
1. Don't Go Crazy With This Cleaning
The goal is not meticulously clean each and every object. If you feel the want to clean the inside of the office's oven, run a deep cycle on your dishwasher, disassemble your toaster, or scrub the grout, resist the urge for the time being and schedule these tasks for another time.
2. Use Correct Kitchen Cleaning Equipment
Having a thorough and efficient cleaning toolkit on available improves the quality of any task. If you have a glass stove top, you may find that a razor blade scraper is useful for removing burned-on grime. White vinegar is a great cleaning tool, but the acid in vinegar may etch away at several types of natural stone, including granite.
Kitchen Cleaning: A Step-by-Step Guide
Employee use office's kitchen everyday, thus, the schedule laid out in this article is meant to be followed once per week or every other week.
In the space of an hour, this is how to get a spotless kitchen:
1. Clear Clutter Off Your Counters
Discarded items that have no place in the kitchen cannot be cleaned around effectively. Remove anything that doesn't belong on your kitchen countertops, starting with one corner or one part at a time. It might be a good time to employ the laundry basket method. Don't slow down or increase the likelihood of being distracted by putting things away one by one right now. Take them out of the way and put them somewhere. After everything on the countertops has been put away or the kitchen has been cleaned, you may put everything back where they belong.
2. Empty Dishwasher and Dish Drainer
Discarded items that have no place in the kitchen cannot be cleaned around effectively. Remove anything that doesn't belong on your kitchen countertops, starting with one corner or one part at a time. It could be an excellent moment to apply the laundry basket approach. Don't slow down or increase the likelihood of being distracted by putting things away one by one right now. Take them out of the way and put them somewhere. After everything on the countertops has been put away or the kitchen has been cleaned, you may put everything back where they belong.
3. Dust The Fridge And Cabinets Top
It makes sense to clean a space from top to bottom, no matter how big or little it is. In this manner, you can keep on top of cleaning as dirt and dust are displaced and fall to the next lower level. The best place to start cleaning the kitchen is at the very top, with the ceiling fixtures, the refrigerator, and the upper cupboards.
4. Clean Small Appliances
In the next step, you should quickly wipe out your electronic gadgets. It's not something you should spend too much time on, but it is an excellent chance to give your microwave, coffee maker, toaster/toaster oven, or stand mixer a thorough shine and remove the trash. Get started on the inside by removing crumb trays from toasters and putting coffee makers through a vinegar cycle. Clean the microwave's inside by spraying it with vinegar to create steam, then wiping it down. Complete the task by dusting and cleaning off the outside of each small appliance. To clean, just moisten a microfiber cloth with a white vinegar solution or all-purpose cleaner. However, stainless steel should not be cleaned with vinegar since it may dull the metal.
5. Clean Anything Else That Stays Out On The Counters
You may also have a rack of cups, an urn with cooking utensils, a tray of cooking oils, and other small gadgets out on your kitchen countertops. Be sure that these things are spotless. Clean any bottles or containers you have out, dust or wash the trays, and see if there's anything you've been storing out on the countertop that may go in a drawer or cabinet. Cleaning the dish rack (after emptying it, of course) and washing the drying mat are also smart ideas.
6. Scrub Down The Exterior Of The Stove And Oven
Again, you may want to wait until another time to give your oven a full cleaning, but a quick wipe-down on the outside will go a long way toward giving your kitchen that showroom shine. From the very top: To clean a gas stove top, take out the grills (soak them first if they're very dirty) and wash the surface with an all-purpose cleanser. To clean electric burners, use diluted dish soap and do the same thing as above (wipe the surface below with an all-purpose cleaner).
After the top has been scrubbed, use a mixture of dish soap and water to wipe off the front of your oven. The buttons and screen must not be overlooked!
7. Wipe Down The Counters
After you've finished washing the dishes, dusting, and cleaning the small appliances, you can turn your attention to the countertops. Remove everything from your countertops, including fixtures like your oil tray and utensil urn, and clean each region separately. When required, use a credit card or a pan scraper to remove crumbs from the space between the counter and the oven. Use a microfiber cloth and some cleaning made for your countertop material to thoroughly wipe off the countertops. Dry-buff the surfaces to a brilliant shine. Iterate the process for the rest of the counter.
8. Deep Clean The sink
It's less of a chore than you would think to give your sink a thorough cleaning. It has to be washed first. Scrubbing cleaners such as Bon Ami or Bar Keeper's Friend should be used, with special attention paid to cleaning the crevices with a special brush. Clean not just the faucet but also the soap dish and any holders for sponges. It's a good idea to wash everything. Once you're done, fill your sink with hot water and bleach. Ten minutes later, drain it.
Garbage disposals may be kept smelling fresh by periodically running the disposal with a few pieces of citrus, such as lemon (or lemon peel) or another citrus (with water running).
9. Clear Out The Fridge
Even if now isn't the time for a thorough cleaning of the refrigerator as a whole, you should at least go through the shelves and throw out any perishables, clean up any spills, and return everything to its proper spot.
10. Clean Outside Of Large Appliances
Clean the outside of your fridge and dishwasher. Use a stainless steel polish if needed.
11. Empty And Wipe Down Garbage Can
Taking out the trash if it's full, vacuuming up any crumbs in the bottom of the can, and cleaning it down inside and out with a disinfectant wipe will get your kitchen trash can as clean as possible until you can give it a thorough washing. Similarly, empty your compost and recycling containers.
12. Sweep, Vacuum, And Mop
Pick up bigger crumbs and debris on the floor with a brush and sweep them into the trash, paying specific attention to the area around the toe kicks of your cabinets. Sweep beneath the stove and refrigerator as well. Use a vacuum to remove the tiny dust and grime that remains after sweeping. Then, clean the floor well to remove any remaining filth.
13. Add Finishing Touches
After you've finished cleaning the kitchen, put the finishing touches on it by lighting a candle and placing a vase of fresh flowers on a nearby surface.
