How To Tackle Cleaning Your Kitchen


No home clean up is complete without going over the kitchen

Better not avoid this for too long, the grease can build up on appliances

Here are a few things to consider when cleaning your kitchen



Start at the top and work down

Now that is my number one top tip for cleaning the kitchen

Main reason for this is the work tops

While using the kitchen, you will find the work top harbours all the dropped food and bacteria from cooking

If you begin working with the floor and work your way up, chances are you will have to re-do the floor again

It can take some time but it is worth emptying your cupboards to clean them

The bits of dirt and dust can build up in there too

You put clean cups, plates and bowls in your cupboard, surely putting them into a clean cupboard is best

Use a disinfectant cleaner on the inner cupboard and the shelves, I like to use diluted Zoflora

Always make sure the shelves are dry before restocking as tins can leave ring marks if put on to a damp shelf



The cooker can been the toughest item to clean, especially inside the oven

Your hob too will have a build up of grease

Gas hobs being more of a jigsaw puzzle to put back together after cleaning, but take them apart to clean properly

A simple way to clean your microwave is to put a bowl of water with lemon in there for a minute, and then wipe clean

Sweep the floor and then mop it

Lots of dirt and food debris can get stuck between the corners of the lower cabinets, so make sure you check twice before mopping

If you have a steam mop, the steam will help get into those harder to clean corners


Hope my way of tackling a kitchen clean is of help to you

Starting from the top and working down has always worked best for me

    I quite agree with you – a steam mop is excellent and I use it on the cupboard doors, the fridge and dishwasher sides and doors too.

    Great Post. The kitchen actually generates the largest volume of dirt in the house. Without proper cleaning of the kitchen the whole house would become infested with bugs . A clean Kitchen also leads to a healthy family.

    I also start at the top and work my way down. I clean the cooker hood, dismantle the rings on the stove top and put them in to soak, then clean the stove top itself. Then walls and countertops, followed by wiping the fridge, cabinets and shelves. Empty bins, spray with disinfectant and wipe outside and in. Lastly I clean the floor. I don’t like using a mop as I always feel they just kind of move dirt around rather than lifting it, so I do the floor the old fashioned way, on my knees with a bucket of diluted cleaning fluid and a scrubbing brush, and lots of floor cloths to pick up the loosened dirt and wipe the floor dry. It’s shocking how much dirt you lift up from a floor cleaned this way, even though we have a no-shoes policy in the house. Possibly to do with the fact that we have 4 cats who don’t wipe their paws when they come in from the garden!
