Lots of moms would agree that the kitchen is one of the busiest parts of the house. And while cooking and preparing food alone is already a daunting task, cleaning the kitchen would be a lot more challenging. Not to mention also your kitchen fixtures, furniture, and kitchen walls that need cleaning as well. To help you with some useful cleaning tips, below, I have listed some fantastic ways to clean your dirty kitchen quickly.
Clean your kitchen from top to bottom
It is still best to follow the old rule when it comes to cleaning your kitchen by cleaning it from top to bottom and front to back. This approach has already proven to save you time and avoid doubling up your cleaning. For example, cleaning the counter without cleaning the top of the stove would only cause you to clean the counter again since debris will most likely fall. I recommend cleaning your ceiling and corners of walls first with a dust mop. Don’t forget to clean the wall against grease, grime, and spilled food.

Use hot water to clean your dishes easily
Having a sink full of dishes can be tiring to look at, but the real challenge is when you try to scrub the food out from them. Scrubbing the food and grease off the dishes is both challenging and time-consuming. To make it easier, fill your sink with hot water together with a squirt of liquid dishwashing soap. Let your dishes soak for at least 15 minutes, so the food and grease would lose its grip. Using this cleaning tip, you can easily wash your dishes with ease.
Use baking soda and vinegar to make your sink shine again
Having a shiny kitchen sink is an excellent motivator for most moms since it makes your kitchen look very clean. To easily remove stains from the sink, apply baking soda on the sink’s surface using a damp sponge. It can effectively remove stains without the need for scratching the sink’s surface. Thoroughly wash the sink with water to remove the baking soda then spray vinegar all over the sink to dissolve calcium deposits. Rinse the sink again with water, and you’ll be surprised to see that your sink will shine again like new.
Use baking soda and vinegar to clean your kitchen tiles
A lot of cleaning experts say that you can clean your entire house as long as you have your baking soda on your side. And that also includes not just your bathroom tiles but your kitchen tiles as well. The grout between the tiles will become discolored and look dirty as time passes by, and it will start to become sore to the eyes. To clean it easily, combine your baking soda with a little bit of water to create a paste and apply it all over the tiles and the grout. Let the paste sit in for at least 10 minutes before spraying the vinegar. Scrub the tiles and grout using a toothbrush to remove all the stains to make it look clean and fresh.
