Remove Kitchen Grime for a Germ-Free Spring

Spring is a time of renewal and fresh starts. As the weather warms up, it’s the perfect opportunity to tackle deep cleaning your kitchen and removing layers of grime to reveal a sparkling, germ-free space. Here are some tips for how to deep clean your kitchen this spring.

Clean Inside Cabinets and Drawers

Take everything out of your cabinets and drawers. Remove shelves and drawers if possible. Use a microfiber cloth dampened with an all-purpose cleaner to wipe down the inside surfaces. For tough grease spots, use a degreasing cleaner formulated for kitchens. Don’t forget the undersides of shelves and insides of drawers! Allow to dry fully before replacing items.

Scrub Kitchen Appliances

Oven: Remove racks and wash with hot, soapy water. Use a store-bought oven cleaner to coat oven interior according to product instructions. Let sit, then scrub off grime with a steel wool pad. Wipe clean and allow to dry fully before replacing racks.

Refrigerator: Take out shelves, bins, and drawers if possible and wash with hot, soapy water. For the interior, use a baking soda paste to scrub off stubborn spots. Wipe down exterior with a microfiber cloth and all-purpose cleaner.

Dishwasher: Run a hot cycle with 2 cups of white vinegar to remove grease and odors. Use a toothbrush dipped in baking soda to scrub around the door. Wipe down exterior with a stainless steel cleaner.

Microwave: Mix together 1/4 cup baking soda and 1/2 cup vinegar in a microwave-safe bowl. Microwave for 5 minutes, allowing steam to soften grease and grime. Wipe clean with a soft cloth.

Deep Clean the Sink

For a stainless steel sink, make a paste of baking soda and water and use a sponge to scrub the basin and faucet fixtures. Rinse and dry with a soft cloth. For an enamel sink, sprinkle with baking soda and scrub with a soft cloth and hot water. Use a toothbrush to clean around the faucet.

Eliminate Germs

Sanitize your kitchen with these steps:

  • Wash countertops with a disinfecting solution or diluted bleach. Rinse and allow to dry.

  • Disinfect handles, knobs, switches, and pulls throughout kitchen.

  • Clean major appliances like refrigerator, oven, and dishwasher.

  • Wash any kitchen linens and towels in hot water.

Check Exhaust Fan and Hood

Remove the filter and soak in hot, soapy water if it’s a grease-absorbing mesh filter. Allow to dry fully before replacing. Use a small vacuum crevice tool to remove dust buildup around fan edges. Wipe down surfaces with an all-purpose cleaner and microfiber cloth.

Deep Clean Floors

Sweep then mop hard surface floors like tile or vinyl with a disinfecting cleaner. For wood floors, use a wood floor cleaner and microfiber mop. Get into corners and along edges for a germ-free clean.

With a thorough deep cleaning this spring, you can reveal a fresh, sanitized kitchen ready for all your spring and summer cooking. Don’t let grime build up – maintaining cleanliness is easier than tackling a major deep cleaning all at once.
