Home maintenance is a tedious task that rewards you only long term, but it does make the family appreciate the one doing the maintenance more. It is a responsible job that keeps the house clean and the family healthy.
But what are the specifics on home maintenance if we try and break it down to one room at a time? What if you have only one room to maintain and that room is the kitchen?
Well, here are some tips for keeping the Kitchen a bright, shiny and healthy place:
Kitchen cleaning is simpler than home cleaning, so don’t overburden yourself with equipment.
All you need is a microfiber cloth or paper towels, a sponge, and cleaning products. You should, however, pay special attention to the products you will be using. Make sure it’s not a chemical-filled product that will make your counters poisonous, or that could start eating through some surface. Use simple cleaners generally used in the kitchen, or invest some more money for green house cleaning products to keep the kitchen clean, fresh, healthy, and eco-friendly. Or, you can always use the “magnificent four” of home cleaners: baking soda, vinegar, salt, and lemon juice. They can replace any other cleaning product and do the same job.
Organise while cleaning the kitchen.
You will take out all the things from cabinets and drawers anyway, so why not put a better order from them when putting them back. Install some space savers like racks and shelves for pans, pots, spices, and herbs so that you don’t have to go through all the cabinets once you start looking for something. Cooking is much easier when knowing where everything is, and spotting what you need with one glance rather than having to rummage through the whole place for a single pan.
Oven cleaning is vital if you want fresh and well-cooked food every time you use the oven.
Open up the lid, and look inside – if not cleaned recently, it is bound to have grease and grime all over the inside. Take care of that with a sponge and a proper cleaner – use something less chemical-filled as all the toxins that stay in the oven will vaporise into your food next time you cook something inside.
Clean all the kitchen appliances.
Everything in the kitchen needs your attention and you should do well to keep the gadgets in a working condition. While cleaning, you can also make sure that everything in the kitchen is still working. Test out even the appliances you are not regularly using. You never know when you will be needing something, so better play safe.
Alternatively, you can always get a cleaning company to do all the maintenance for you. It will cost you a bit, but then again, you will have Regular Cleaning, and you will not have to worry about the quality of your kitchen anymore.
