Having a clean kitchen isn’t a right, it’s a privilege. You need t be aware of how dirty your kitchen can get if you’re looking to have the most sanitized area of your house where you eat the food (which only makes sense, right?). Cleaning a kitchen is always nice, but giving your kitchen a very deep scrub down is a completely different story. There’s always going to be specific kinds of bacteria that can stick around if you aren’t careful, and clearly that’s a situation none of us need to be in (nor deserve to be). We’re going to go over a few techniques you can make use of in order to get your kitchen situation sorted out, but don’t think that reading them alone is going to get the job done! You’re going to have to get up and start cleaning if you really want a sanitized eating area, so don’t be lazy. The tips are going to be straightforward, so don’t expect an extravagant list (after all this is cleaning the kitchen we’re talking about here!).
You should always try and use the minimal amount of cleaning products as possible, because more isn’t exactly better in this case. The more chemicals you’re making use of, the more you’ll have to wash off when it comes to the rinsing portion of it all. You also need to focus on cleaning out your pantry, because pantries are often crowded and leave little room for new foods to be put in. Most of the time the pantry is filled with stuff you wouldn’t even eat, which is why you should be cleaning it out monthly (or even bi-monthly). Ammonia is a very powerful compound that’s used to blast away those grease stains in your kitchen, so even though its quite pungent you should always be using ammonia to de-grease everything. Dish soap will be your best friend when it comes to kitchen cleaning, because we all know what comes along with cleaning the kitchen; dishes upon dishes. There will be dishes that need to be washed and you will need to wash them, so just get it over with.
Glass shards are a very big no in any kitchen, so if you’ve broken something just bust out a piece of bread. You can use the bread to pick up the shards and make sure that nobody gets hurts! It’s a win-win situation!
