quick kitchen cleaning tips

The kitchen is one of the areas in your apartment home that needs the most cleaning. From food preparation to foot traffic, this part of your home can end up with grime and dirt without regular cleaning. Fortunately, there are several simple and fast ways to make sure that your kitchen stays as clean as possible on a regular basis.

Clean Your Refrigerator Doors

The handles and doors of your fridge can get dirty easily from all the times they’re touched. Wipe these down daily or every few days using a damp cloth to remove grime. With just a couple of minutes of cleaning, you’ll have a fridge that looks clean and shiny.

Clean Inside Your Microwave

The inside of your microwave is easy to overlook, but it can be covered in food stains that are hard to remove when you let them sit. Take a few minutes a day or every other day to spray a bit of cleaner inside your microwave, then wipe it down with a cloth. This should remove food particles and stains before they have a chance to harden.

Make Dry Dishes Disappear

If you tend to have dishes sitting out on your counter for days after they’ve been washed, make a habit of putting them away once they’re dry. If you don’t want to wait, you can dry them with a towel, then put them where they belong. This helps keep your countertops from looking cluttered.

Clean Your Sink

Your sink’s surface can be coated in grime when it’s not cleaned regularly. You can stop this from happening by wiping it down on a daily basis. Use a cloth and multi-purpose cleaning product to quickly get rid of any grime that’s starting to build up.

Sweep Messy Areas

Do a quick sweep in areas that are usually the messiest places in your kitchen, such as near counters where you prepare food. This is a fast and convenient way to get rid of crumbs and other food particles on your floor, so they won’t attract bugs.

Put Items Back Promptly

When you’re preparing food, don’t leave all the ingredients sitting out on the counter until you get around to cleaning up later. Instead, put them back immediately after you’re done using them. This makes it easier to keep your countertops clean.
