4 Tips to Incorporate Spring Cleaning in Your Kitchen

by Waverly Wilde

Clean out those cabinets and wipe down your appliances with these easy tips this spring!

1. Declutter your Kitchen

Spring cleaning is all about getting into the deep, dark corners that never get washed, and thoroughly cleaning them. But it also means purging your home of unnecessary items you don’t need anymore. Start your mission off by opening each cabinet and kicking out the Tupperware, cups, and other utensils that clutter your space.

2. Make a DIY Cleaner

From glass cleaners to wood cleaners, when it comes to your kitchen, all you need is one to do the job. Make your own organic, all-purpose spray with only a few simple ingredients: vinegar, baking soda, lavender or lemon essential oil, and water. Use this concoction on everything from your oven to your walls and wipe off with a microfiber washcloth.

3. Use Your Dishwasher

Obviously, you already use your dishwasher, but you probably only use it on things like your dirty dishes. It’s time to think outside the box for this spring cleaning, and throw in a few unorthodox items that could use a good washing. Soap dishes, pet dishes,  sponges, microwave trays, drip pans, spice containers, fridge shelves, and more!

4. Look for Expiration Dates

While the milk may be able to go a day or two longer than its expiration date, it’s important that you throw out everything that has already moved past its “best if used by” date. Remember that canned goods, pasta, and other nonperishables may last longer, but they still have a date they expire by.

Keep the place you eat spotless by using these tips while spring cleaning. And if you are looking to add pristine new appliances to your kitchen, stop by to see what we have in store for you!
