No matter how messy the rest of the rooms in your house are, nothing can compare to the kitchen. I think that everyone will agree with me that stains are constantly appearing as if out of nowhere when you look at your kitchen. If you are looking for an easy and quick way to tackle the mess, I have a few tips for you which I believe will make the burdensome kitchen cleaning much easier and faster.
Clean while you are cooking
I believe that it is much easier to deal with the mess right away rather than leaving it for later. The more you postpone the cleaning, the messier and more tiring the cleaning becomes. This is why it is always a good idea to start with a clean sink and empty dishwasher. This way you will be able to rinse or load the dirty dishes immediately after you are done using them. Just think how much time and effort this simple step can save you.
Tackle the stains on the walls
Oily stains are the worst and they can make your kitchen walls look disastrous. Luckily for you, it is actually not that hard to deal with them. All that you need to do is mix a mild dishwashing soap with some water and use this solution to wipe off the stains. Once you are sure that every stain is gone, you can rinse with water and your walls will look as good as new.
Clean the sink after every dishwashing
Once you acquire the habit of washing your sink after every dishwashing routine, you will notice the change in the look of your kitchen. By doing this step you will make sure that your kitchen sink is always clean and it smells nice. This will not only bring some freshness to your entire kitchen but it will also prevent a lot of bacteria and grime.
Take care of your cutting board
Once a month it is a good idea to oil your cutting board. This exercise will take you only about five minutes but it will maintain the good condition of your cutting board and you will be able to use it for a long time. You can do the same for your wooden spoons as well. After all, five minutes once a month are definitely a reasonable price for the good look of your wooden kitchen tools.
Clean your kitchen countertops regularly and properly
To make sure that your kitchen is always spotless and ready for the next cooking task, you should take care of your countertop. Pay attention to the material it is made of and use the proper technique to clean it in the most efficient way.
Using a mild soap is the best option for plastic laminate countertops according to this cleaning site. You can also use a solution of three parts baking soda and one part water to tackle tough stains. Using a crushed chalk is a great trick to shine marbled countertops. Dampen a clean cloth and dip it in the powder of crushed chalk. Scrub the marbled surface and rinse with water once you are done with the cleaning. For stainless steel, you don’t need any special products. You can use a mild soap for tougher stains and clean with a wet cloth afterwards. To prevent any fingerprints, you can polish the surface of the countertop with a white vinegar.
And there you have it. If you follow these few steps, your kitchen will look amazing in no time. Not only are those steps great for the quick and easy clean of your kitchen but they will also help you maintain its good look for a long time.
