We’re nearing the end of the Clean and Organized Kitchen series and moving on down…to the floors!


Step 27 :: Deep Clean Floors

I don’t know about you, but at the end of each day my kitchen floors look like a mini trash can. Apparently half of everything I cook ends up there. Can I blame it on the kids? Yes, I think so because I don’t rembember the floors being nearly as dirty pre-babies. Then again, I didn’t cook as much back then.

Even if your floors are less of a dumping ground than mine, we all should deep clean our kitchen floors every once in a while. Here are a few tips to make that happen:

  • First, grab a broom and sweep your floors. Or, if you want an easier first step (and who doesn’t?!), grab your vacuum and use the hose attachment to suck up all of the food and dirt. Make sure to focus on all the crevices and under the cabinets.
  • Next, get on your hands and knees with a scraper and damp cleaning rag. Use the scraper to remove dried food and use the damp rag to wipe up spills.
  • Finally, mop as usual.

I deliberately made this a short post with 3 easy bullet points so I could trick you into thinking this was a quick and easy task. Okay, it may actually be quick and easy for you. For me, though,  it will probably take all night!

Are your kitchen floors reasonably clean? Or do you somehow end of up with gobs of food under the cabinets like I do?

    I find that the floor around my stove and dishwasher are the dirtiest, so when I’m cleaning the kitchen after dinner each night, I quickly spray the floor around these two with Lysol Kitchen Spray, then wipe with a paper towel. It saves me time on Saturday mornings, when I steam mop the whole kitchen floor.
