There’s nothing worse than suddenly being caught out by a text or call saying someone’s around the corner and popping in for a cuppa when you know that your kitchen needs a speedy kitchen clean! Here are some tips for a cleaner kitchen.
Stack the dishwasher
If you haven’t stacked the dishwasher from the night before, now is the time to quickly stack the machine and get the dirty dishes out of the kitchen sink. Let’s face it, no one likes an eyesore in the kitchen! This shouldn’t take you more than five minutes or so to contribute to your speedy kitchen clean.
Clean the sink
Whilst stainless steel sinks tend to show more soap grime than porcelain or traditional sinks, they both need a good, hygienic clean. Use some bicarbonate of soda on a cloth and gently rub the sink with it. Then use your normal disinfectant and kitchen cleaner to rinse the sink. It should produce a sparkling result!
Wipe the Counters
Depending on the material of your kitchen counters, you can either use an all-purpose cleaner or a specific cleaner for the material of your counter wipe down your counters. The end result is a clean surface … all in a matter of one minute of your speedy kitchen clean. The quicker you notice a stain or mark the more quickly it will come out, if you have left or unnoticed a stain and try to remove it later it maybe harder and more work to get out later.
Wipe the Appliances
If you have stainless steel appliances, purchase a stainless steel cleaner. If you don’t have stainless steel appliances, then use any all-purpose cleaner and spray the cleaner onto the surface of your appliances and wipe them clean with a microfibre cloth.
Clean the hob
Simply wipe down your hob with a small amount of bicarbonate of soda if you don’t have a delicate hob, if you do, wipe with an all-purpose kitchen cleaner for sparkling results.
A vacuum can make a much cleaner and difference to the overall look and it doesn’t take that long over the kitchen floor to pick up any loose crumbs, pet hair, general dust and dirt. Its also great for getting into the tiny spaces that you cant quite mop up underneath and in between the fridge, oven etc.
