Top-to-Bottom Kitchen Cleaning: Part 2

The kitchen is often the busiest part of any home. We use it and visit it for a snack or a drink of water so many times in one day that regular cleaning is a must. Thoroughly cleaning your kitchen, from top to bottom, is also mandatory at least once a month, to keep it hygienic. 

Look no further than this guide to give your kitchen a thorough, general cleaning. Once you’ve accomplished the tasks detailed in Part 1, move on to your stove, oven, and sink, as well as the rest of the kitchen. 

Stove and Oven Cleaning
Clean and tune up your stove and oven. Take off the stove top to clean underneath; open up your oven so you can wipe it down. Clean those pesky grease, grime, and soot stains with an extra-strong mixture of water, vinegar, and baking soda. For the stubborn stains, use a steel mesh pad or an old toothbrush. Sprinkle baking soda onto the stain and scrub until clean. Wipe down your stove and oven afterwards. 

Sink Cleaning
Using water and dishwashing liquid, scrub the faucets, nozzles, and the rest of the sink with the rough side of a sponge. Use an old toothbrush for the nooks and crannies. Get rid of mold, mildew, and grease stains by scrubbing at them with a solution of lemon juice or vinegar.

General Cleaning
Once everything else is clean, organized, and stored away, clean the rest of the kitchen, starting with dusting the top of cupboards and the fridge, then moving down to counter- and table-tops, and finally giving the floor a good sweep and polish. As with before, you can use homemade, all-natural cleaning agents like baking soda, vinegar, and lemon juice for wiping down surfaces, and then polish them afterwards with a mixture of oils and lemon juice.
