Spring is finally here, a great time to start thinking of ways to freshen up your home. One of the best ways to do this is by spring cleaning your kitchen. As the heart of the home, the kitchen is the most important room to keep clean and organised. But where to start? We’ve compiled some helpful tips from Derbyshire Kitchen experts to help you get your space sparkling this spring.
- Clear out your cupboards and pantry
Start by emptying your cupboards and pantry of all the food items and cookware. This will allow you to clean and reorganise the inside of the cupboards and pantry. Check expiry dates on food items and disregard anything that has expired or is no longer edible. Donate any items that are still good but won’t be used by your family.
- Clean your appliances
Your kitchen appliances, such as your oven, microwave, and fridge can accumulate dirt and grime over time. Use a specialised cleaner to scrub away any stains or debris. Pay special attention to the fridge, which should be cleaned inside and out. Remove all the items from the fridge, wipe down the shelves and drawers, and remove any expired food.
- Deep clean your sink
The sink is one of the most used areas in the kitchen. To deep clean your sink, start by scrubbing it with a gentle cleaner, then disinfect. Finally, shine taps and handles with a specialised cleaner.
- Organise your worktops
Worktops can easily become cluttered with small appliances, dishes, and cooking utensils. Take a few minutes to declutter and organize your worktops. Store away any small appliances that are not frequently used and create designated areas for frequently used items like cutting boards and utensils.
- Clean your floors
Last but not least, don’t forget to clean your kitchen floors. Sweep or vacuum up any debris, and then mop the floors with a cleaning solution. Pay attention to the grout lines and any hard-to-reach areas.
