After the holidays, it becomes apparent that your kitchen has gone through the holiday war zone and cooking bake-offs. You might have noticed that all the appliances, dishes and kitchen gadgets are either not where they were and/or not working the way they were a couple months prior. Here are some to-dos to get your kitchen back into pre-holiday working condition and looking brand new!
3 Must Do’s for Your Kitchen:
1. Microwave Range Hood Filter
If you have an over-the-range microwave, it is important to clean your filter and fan regularly. By cleaning it regularly you prevent built-up grease. You can clean the filter by soaking it in warm soapy water or put it in a dishwasher for one cycle! If you are able to access your microwave fan, turn off the power source to the microwave and wipe down the fan with a dampened cloth. A simple and easy fix.
2. Oven and Stove Top
Your stove probably had the worst damage done to it from the holidays. First step in cleaning your oven is taking off the stove burner, drip pans, and knobs. Soak the drip pans in warm soapy water and baking soda. From there you use a damp sponge with warm water to scrub it clean. Using the same sponge you can clean the knobs. And lastly, with your favorite grease cutting cleaner (prefer citrus-based) spray and scrub down your stove top. Then return the stove burner, drip pans and knobs to their rightful place.
For the oven, an easy way to clean it is to sprinkle baking soda on the bottom and add a little bit of water. Let the mixture sit overnight and scrub clean the next morning. Your oven and stove should sparkle like new.
3. Kitchen Cabinets
Kitchen cabinets get neglected from a kitchen cleaning because the grime is not always visible, especially on wooden cabinets.
With a citrus-based cleaner spray down your cabinets and let the cleaner sit for a few minutes. Next, use a warm damp sponge and scrub down each cabinet. Then with a dry towel, wipe down the cabinets to reveal them fresh and clean.
