How to Clean the Kitchen
We all know how dirty a kitchen can get, especially when it’s not cleaned for weeks. If you have a white kitchen and want to maintain its pristine look, then this article is for you.
This article will teach you how to clean your kitchen in the most
efficient way. So that you can save both time and effort, while also
keeping your kitchen looking great!
Gather your Cleaning Supplies for the Kitchen
The first step is to gather all the necessary cleaning materials like: microfibre cloths, scrubber, plastic scraper, stove top cleaner, dish soap, vacuum, and mop (not a flat mop). We always clean top to down to ensure we do the floors last for all the dust, crumbs, and hair that settle on the counters, then the floor. First, start by clearing the surfaces of any clutter and dishes. Put them in the dishwasher or wash them by hand if they are dirty enough for this level of cleaning.
The second step is to clean the upper cupboards with a thicker micofibre cloth especially when there are smudges on it. Dust will fall onto the counters, stove top and floor. Remember that the most important part of cleaning is making sure that you have cleaned every surface thoroughly so that there are no traces of dirt left behind, including corners, cracks and crevices which may be hard to reach, but can still collect dust.
Next, clean the stove top and the backsplash. You can put the stove top cleaner on the stove top and gently rub it with a non-scratching scrubber to remove all the burnt food or marks. For the backsplash, if there are harder food stuck on the surface, try using a bit of dish soap to scrub it off. Make sure to avoid bleach or vinegar (vinegar can cause damage to the grout if your backsplash is made of tiles and the grouts are getting old with possible cracks)
Cleaning the countertops is one of the most important parts of keeping a kitchen clean. The first step to cleaning a countertop is to use soap and water on the top of the countertop. If you have any dried up food, use a spatula or scraper to scrap it off and then rinse it with water again. Nothing acidic as granite, marble are not good with acids. Polish it nicely with a microfiber cloth. It is also important that you polish the backsplash nicely after you have finished scrubbing and cleaning it.
Top to Bottom is Always Important, even in the Kitchen
Clean the lower cupboards, as dust and debris from counters would fall on it. This will fall onto the floor and get cleaned when the floors are completed.
It is also important that you polish the backsplash nicely after you have finished scrubbing and cleaning it.

Cupboards are Next!
Now, the cupboards. Wipe off any food stains or grease with microfibre cloth on the cupboards doors as well as the inside of the cupboards. Make sure to wipe every corner, cracks, and crannies which may be hard to reach, but can still collect dust. Next to your stainless steel appliances. If you see any heavy food stuck on the surface, don’t scrub it as it could scratch the surface, but gently apply water with dish soap for a short amount of time to gently remove. Then polish with stainless steel cleaner using a microfibre cloth. When wiping stainless steel surface, make sure to follow the grain to clean. It is important to wipe with a dry cloth after polishing to complete the final finish.
Kitchen Floors are Last
Finally, the floors. Vacuum the floor first. This will remove any loose dirt and debris that might be on the floor. The next step is to use a very small amount of Dawn soap and water in a mop bucket. The soap will help break down any grease or food residue on the floor while the water will help rinse it away. After this, you can do a general mop and microfibre for the corners which should remove any remaining residue from your kitchen floor. If you put too much soap, be prepared to do a water mop.
