Keep reading for the last article of this series and learn how to clean and maintain that cleanliness as long as possible.
Always do the baseboards first, (with a rag mop) and make sure that the mop is wet enough to actually clean the baseboards.
The most used parts of a kitchen are the tools that contain food—the fridge and ovens—so, those are the utensils that need most of your attention.
For the fridge, wipe the door panel, handle, and the top of the fridge.
In a previous article, we’ve covered how to clean your oven and your oven racks. However, a good and easy way to clean your oven is to spray its interior ahead of time (remove the lower drawer, place about 4 or 5 sheets of newspaper on the floor to catch any drips) and then, when grease and food crumbs are easy to remove, remove them.
For small appliances, after cleaning, remember to polish them.
The mopping part
Use your cleaning product of preference, having in mind your floor type: wood, tile, etc.
A great option to clean your floor and avoid using commercial products is to use vinegar and water a couple of times.
Mop your way out of a room, and it helps to keep the mop head going in the same direction as the grain of the hardwood floor – this reduces the chance of streaks forming.
- Stainless steel appliances: take a microfiber cloth and wet half of it, clean the door, and then dry with the other half of the cloth. If you want to use Stainless Cleaner, wipe in the direction of the grain of the stainless.
- If you want to get your refrigerator looking really clean you’re going to want to pull it out. There are two things to remember. Do you have an ice maker? If so there’s a direct water feed and you don’t want to pull this line away from the wall. A refrigerator is heavy and may scratch your floors, so have help and keep an eye on the floor.
- Sit on the toilet, what do you see? Be sure that the sight line is clean.
If you are able to complete all the tasks described in this 3-part series, your house should look cleaner than it ever has before!
