The holidays require you to clean and sanitize a number of areas around your home. One of them, in particular, should be given the most attention since it’s where much of the action happens to come to the Yuletide Season.
The kitchen will need a lot more cleaning than you realize. It is bound to house a lot of messes from making breakfasts, lunches, and dinners for the holidays. Worse, a lot of food waste can be left lying around.
Fortunately, we’ve got you covered on a few handy tips for cleaning your kitchen for the holidays:
Clean those appliances
How long has it been since the last time you cleaned your appliances?
Kitchen appliances need cleaning and maintenance so you can make the best holiday meals.
To keep your stoves and ovens from being a fire hazard, make sure to rid them of grease and oil by scrubbing them thoroughly. For your microwave, use a paper towel to wipe away any stains. Lastly, sanitize and organize the contents of your fridge, mainly the ingredients for the meals you are going to prepare and leftovers.
Polish the utensils
You’ll be washing a lot of plates for the holidays as much as you’ll be using them, that’s for certain. But you shouldn’t forget to polish up the utensils as well.
Never forget those spoons, forks, knives, and anything you’ve used for Christmas dinner the night before. They need cleaning just as much as your platters do.
Wipe down that counter
Of course, the kitchen counters will be used to prepare your meals and the last thing you would want is to cook with germ-ridden ingredients.
Don’t just clean your counters of dust and grime. You should also remember to remove any clutter such as spare ingredients and kitchen tools.
Finally, don’t forget to clean the handles of the cabinets and doors, especially if you touched these with unwashed hands. Just wipe them down with a warm, wet towel, and use vinegar or a potent cleaning solution to disinfect them.
Don’t forget the floors!
You might have been focusing too much on the previous items that you’ve forgotten to give your kitchen floors the sweeping that they need.
Much of your kitchen’s messes can be found on the floor, and it would be foolish to leave so much of it unswept throughout the holidays.
Sweep your kitchen floor clean of dirt and small traces of food. Then, vacuum thoroughly to ensure nothing remains.
