When we think of cleaning the kitchen, the first thing that comes to mind is wiping down stoves, surfaces, and counter tops. Some of us might even think to include wiping the appliances and gadgets sitting on the kitchen counter. But how many of us think about wiping down the fronts of our cupboards? We touch those surfaces multiple times a day, and sometimes we forget to sanitise them.
Professional cleaners and our personal cleaning routines can be enhanced so much by regularly wiping down grungy cabinet surfaces! The grease, handprints, fingerprints, and smudges gradually build up. They can leave an unsightly mess; we might not notice it until it’s wiped away and clean, but it doesn’t mean it’s not important to think about. And once we’ve taken the time to wipe these surfaces, we will absolutely notice the difference!
What You Will Need
Whether or not you intend to use this advice for yourself and your home or cleaning homes as a maid service, these tips will transform the appearance of a kitchen and get it much cleaner than it was before! But to clean and sanitise the cupboard you’ll only need a few, common cleaning objects:
· cleaning rags
· a degreasing and sanitising cleaner
· a scrubbie
It’s incredibly easy to wipe down the kitchen cupboards. It doesn’t take a lot of physical strength, nor is it time consuming. Just use your chosen cleaner (we heartily recommend using an all-natural, green cleaner!) and thoroughly spray the surface of the cupboard. Let the cleaner soak into the grease and grime for a few seconds to loosen it.
Once the grime and dirt has loosened just enough, take one of the rags and wiping down the surface of the cupboard. Work up any visible stains and dirt. It’s also important to wipe down the entire surface so that it’s sanitised and free from germs. Even if you can’t visibly see dirt on the surface, it doesn’t mean that there aren’t germs and various bacteria lurking there. Wiping down surfaces to kill germs in the kitchen is important, especially since food and drinks are prepared there on a daily basis!
If you find any particles of food that don’t want to wipe up easily, a scrubbie can be used to gently work these spots up. If the cabinet is painted, be sure to scrub it off gently so that you don’t pull any of the paint off. Continue cleaning all of the cabinets in your kitchen with this method; it even works for bathrooms, too!
