Since most kitchens aren’t usually that big, keeping them clean and beautiful isn’t really that hard at all. In fact, there are some quick ways you could make your kitchen looking bright and organized without doing much at all. Here are some of the tips you should try out.
Keep the Countertops Clean
Having clutter over kitchen countertops is a normal scene. However, it makes your kitchen look less appealing and messy. After cooking or preparing food, be sure to store away the things that you’ve used in their proper places such as spices, utensils, kitchen appliances, and many more. Aside from that, take away all those things that don’t really belong to the kitchen to lessen the things you need to clean up. You could use some trays, baskets, or organizing shelves to keep everything in its right place and make your kitchen look tidy and neat.
Wipe Down Surfaces
After clearing the countertops, make them look cleaner by wiping them down. You could use an anti-grease countertop cleaning solution to spray on all the greasy surfaces and wipe it down with a sponge to remove all the stubborn dirt and oil. Aside from countertops, don’t forget to clean the stovetop, sink, and other dirty surfaces. If you need to remove stubborn dirt between tiles, use quality tile cleaners and a brush to clean those dirty grouts.
Store Away Dishes and Utensils
In many cases, you probably have a pile of dishes or utensils left to dry on the countertops or beside the sink. It’s pretty tempting to just leave them there since most likely you’ll be using them again within the day. However, if you want to make your kitchen look more spacious and brighter, wipe all those dishes and other utensils and store them away on the dish cabinet. It will definitely make your space look less cluttered and fresher than before.
Sweep the Floor Thoroughly
Although sweeping the floor is a regular chore, we do to maintain cleanliness at home; there are some hard-to-reach areas where dirt and dust can accumulate. In the kitchen, these spots are usually those areas that aren’t really that visible such as under the tables, chairs, and near the toe kick of the cabinets. Even if they are not that apparent, this accumulated dirt can make your kitchen space look dull and dirty. Be sure to sweep thoroughly and reach those corners to maintain a bright and clean-looking kitchen.
Those tips are so easy to do and you can even finish them in just a few minutes. Spare some of your time every day to follow those steps and maintain the beauty and cleanliness of your kitchen.
