Spring Cleaning Challenge Day 4: Clean Your Kitchen

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.

I cleaned under the refrigerator last week. :)  Under the stove... a year.  I just got some everywhere wipes and haven't tried them yet. Usually I use a diluted cleaner such as mr clean. Vinegar is supposed to be good, but I don't know about using it on granite.

I haven't deep cleaned my kitchen yet. I just moved in, about 3 weeks ago. I need to get under the fridge and stove.

I like my cleaning wipes. It makes clean up easier :)

Under Stove/ Fridge once a year. I have been using Mr. Clean (blue-green color), I love the way it smells so fresh.  I am almost done with spring cleaning my kitchen, inside of fridge is all that is left.
