If you’ve been following along, the bulk of your kitchen should be spotless. Right?! Now, we’re on to a smaller cleaning task, but one that you’ll notice when you least expect it.
Step 28 :: Detail the Kitchen
I’m sure you know the benefits of a washing and vacuuming a vehicle. A clean vehicle makes it fun to drive your old car again. But have you ever had your car detailed? The paint is polished. The trim and wheels are shined. Tiny crevices you rarely notice like door hinges and cup holders are deep cleaned. It makes a vehicle look brand new!
The same is true for your kitchen. Take some time today to focus on the details. Here are some ideas to get you started:
- Pot holders and oven mitts. Food can easily stain and stick onto these items causing them to look old and worn. Wipe them down if they are rubber. Throw them in the washing machine if they’re cloth.
- Spatulas and cooking utensils. The dishwasher doesn’t always remove everything from cooking utensils. If you happen to have debris stuck on these items, give them a good hand scrubbing today.
- Floors of cabinets and drawers. We’ve already organized cabinets and drawers but I want to make sure you’ve wiped them all down. Remove crumbs easily by using the hose attachment to your vacuum.
- Sink and faucet. Pay attention to the base of your faucet and sprayer. Use an old toothbrush to get rid of any build up that may have accumulated.
Those are just a few top of mind ideas. Can you think of other areas in the kitchen that should be detailed?
