If there was ever a room it was important to deep clean, it was the kitchen. After all, that is where your family’s meals are prepared! The thing is that deep cleaning a kitchen can seem pretty overwhelming, especially when it hasn’t been done in a while. The good news is that by using the guidance below you can make giving your kitchen space a thorough clean easy. Read on to find out more.
The sink and surrounding area
One of the areas that get the most intense use in the kitchen is the sink. It’s where we wash vegetables, pots, and pans, and fill up kettles and jugs. With that in mind, you must keep the sink and the area surrounding it clean.
When it comes to the sink itself baking soda is your best bet on stainless steel, although a scrubbing sponge and a bit of elbow grease will work wonders too!

Get your cabinets clean
Not only can you make your kitchen look clean by taking some time to wipe down your cabinets but you can ensure that it is as hygienic as possible as well. Indeed, as we tend to touch the outside, inside, and handles of the cabinet all the time, making sure they get a deep clean on occasion is vital.
The most straightforward way to do this is to use a 1:1 cleaning vinegar solution and a microfiber cloth. Although before you begin it’s a smart idea to take some dry kitchen roll and get rid of any dust or grease first. Also, remember when using cleaning vinegar you must never combine it with bleach as it can create a dangerous gas!
Tackle the oven
To many, the oven is the Mt Everest of the kitchen as it can be one of the most difficult areas to get truly clean. Usually, the best way to address this is to use an oven cleaner kit that has separate bags in which the oven racks can soak.
However, you can do your future self a favor and put a system in place where you clean down the oven or hob immediately after any spill. Then your deep clean won’t be so painful when it comes time.
Scrub that floor!
While getting down on your hands and knees to scrub the kitchen floor doesn’t sound like a lot of fun, this area of the kitchen must be clean and hygienic. This means that a quick wipe-over with a mop isn’t enough when you are doing a deep clean.
Instead, why not try using a steam mop that will sanitize as well as clean. Finally don’t forget to pull out your appliances and move any kitchen furniture to clean underneath as well. Tomatoes, crumbs, and other kitchen scraps do have a tendency to get knocked onto the floor and under appliances after all.
