*BONUS DAY*
One member who replies to this post will WIN a CafeMom Water Bottle!

Welcome to Day 4 of the Spring Cleaning Challenge!

When is the last time you really cleaned your kitchen? Start with the fridge, then move on to other appliances before focusing on counters, cabinet doors, etc.

  • Appliances: Toss out old food. Scrub the fridge, microwave, stove, etc., inside and out. Place an opened box of baking soda inside the fridge to remove lingering odors and keep it smelling fresh. Now is also a good time to change the water filter or clean out the drip pan underneath.
  • Clutter Centers: Counters, drawers, cabinets, sink area, and pantry should all be cleaned out, scrubbed down, and reorganized to maximize storage and help you take inventory of what you have.
  • Wipe Everything: Wipe down cabinet doors, tops of cabinets, ceiling fans, light fixtures, etc., and then sweep and mop the kitchen floor.

When is the last time you cleaned under your fridge?
Have you ever cleaned under your stove?
What's your favorite kitchen cleaning solution?

 i clean out my fridge every tuesday, trash day is wed and i have a major phobia of eating spoiled things so things get two or three days and they are gone.

i have to really clean my kitchen almost weekly, i have white cabinets and a two yr old and eight month old so they dont stay white for very long so i end up doing a good scrub weekly, the counters and such get cleaned daily, i HATE a dirty kitchen, and its the first thing you see when you walk into my house so i dont want it trashed. i just went thru all the cabinets and threw things away and donated things we weren't using anymore last weekend.

This shouldn't be too hard since the kitchen gets cleaned every day and I just reorganized last week. LOL Ds has been cleaning the kitchen for me to get extra TV time so I'm sure he will pitch in and help me out with this.
