  • Spring Into Action: Kitchen Cleaning Checklist

    [caption id="attachment_6122" align="alignleft" width="300" caption="Spring Into Action: Kitchen Cleaning Checklist "]Cleaning[/caption]

    Spring is here (knock wood)!  It's time to start making your "Spring Into Action" checklist. Here are some ideas for getting the kitchen clean and decluttered.

    1. Begin with a 15 Minute Kitchen Cleanup.
      This will clear out the clutter and dirty dishes, and give you room to do the actual spring clean up. Don't worry about cleaning the floors in the 15 minute clean up. We will do this later.
    2. Dust down the ceiling and corners of walls.
      Determine if the walls need washed in dirty spots. Spot wash, remembering air vents, doorknobs, doors, switch plates. Walls will likely need to be washed more often in this room than in others. You may not have noticed that the hand mixer or blender sloshed goop all over the wall. Take your spring cleaning time now to clean the grease, grime, and spilled food from your walls.
    3. Dust and clean all art and photographs along the wall.
      Be careful when cleaning framed art and photographs. Never spray cleanser or water onto the frame. The liquid can seep behind the glass and damage the pictures. Instead lightly wet a clean cloth to wipe the frame and glass.
    4. Dust and clean the ceiling fan.
      You may need to use a gentle cleanser like Murphy's Oil Soap. Take down any light fixtures and gently wash and dry them before replacing.
    5. Take down draperies, curtains, and blinds to wash or have cleaned according to the manufacturer's directions.
      Vacuum and clean windowsills and corners. Wash the insides and outsides of the windows. Take down and rinse off screens, before replacing.
