Even if you think it’s clean, kitchens hide more dirt than you might imagine, as well as germs. Correct cleaning is essential to avoid any type of contamination in the food that we handle and that we later consume. Therefore, if you want your kitchen to be really pristine, take note of these tips.
The first thing to keep in mind when cleaning a kitchen is that the elements you are going to use are specific for this room.Both in terms of products and utensils, since a product that you use in the living room to clean dust is not the same as a degreaser to remove grease from the kitchen hood. In the same way, a cloth that you use for the bathroom should not under any circumstances be used for the kitchen.
In this sense, it is important that you have products such as: disinfectant, grease remover, specific gel to clean steel, specific cleaner for the oven or microwave, detergent, bleach and ammonia.
When starting the cleaning we recommend that you do it from up to down, leaving the ground for last.
For a thorough cleaning you should clean from the first closet to the last drawer. Start on the side of the kitchen to follow an order.
Empty all drawers, cabinets and pantries. To clean these spaces, use a disinfectant and a microfiber cloth. Remember to remove the product well before putting the food back in its place.
It is advisable that as you go emptying and cleaning, you also go ordering those spaces throwing away everything that is expired, correctly closing packages that you have improperly opened, classifying food by typology, cleaning and filling cans, etc.
Once you are done with the interior it is time to move on to the exterior.
Our advice is that you start with the tiles. To do this, use grease remover or ammonia. Then clean the doors cabinets, drawers and, especially, the worktop, as it accumulates a large amount of germs.
