Clean the Kitchen

Clean out the refrigerator

Remove all products from the fridge, dispose of expired food, then wipe down the interior with two tbsps of baking soda and a quart of water.

Scrub the stove

Clean the surface of the stove with warm water and soap, removing the grates and cleaning them as well. Don’t forget to clean the interior too.

Wipe the cabinets

Using a wet rag, wipe down the exterior and interior of your cabinets. Check any food for expiration dates and dispose of when necessary.

Keep your countertops shining

Sweep the floor

A final step in cleaning your kitchen is to sweep the floors and mop when necessary.
