Spring is in the air after a long and gloomy winter, and that tends to get people in the mood to start cleaning, organising, and even redecorating different rooms in their house.
Spring is a time of renewal, so it makes sense to want to spruce up your space, and there’s no better place to get started than in the kitchen. For 31% of homeowners in the UK, the kitchen is where they spend most of their time. It’s the central hub of any home. So, giving it a good cleaning this time of year can make it even more inviting.
If you’re not sure where to get started, that’s okay! Let’s go over a few easy Spring cleaning tips for your kitchen. With just a little bit of time and effort, your favourite space can look and feel like new.
1. Clean Out Your Pantry
Most people have the best of intentions for the pantry, but it often gets over-filled with snacks, food staples, and spices. One of the easiest things to do to start cleaning your kitchen is to re-organize your pantry.
Take everything off of the shelves, give the shelves a good wipe-down, and then put things back with some kind of order or theme. If certain items are expired, throw them away. If you have nonperishable food you know your family won’t eat, donate it. It doesn’t take long to create a beautifully-organized pantry that will make it easier to find what you’re looking for.
2. Disinfect the Countertops and Sink
Chances are you use your countertops and sink every day. While you might wipe them down each day, too, it’s important to make sure they’re thoroughly cleaned as often as possible.
Try completely clearing everything off of the countertops. Then, spray them down with a cleaner/disinfectant spray and wipe them off. You can wipe off each small appliance that might be sitting on the counter as you go, too.
The same goes for your sink when it comes to using a disinfectant. It’s also a good idea to soak drain stoppers in a disinfectant solution so they don’t grow mold.
3. Clearing Out Cabinets and Drawers
Do you have cookware or utensils you simply don’t use anymore? Are they taking up space and making it hard to get your drawers open?
Sometimes, doing a “purge” of the kitchen tools you don’t use can help you to quickly feel more organized. This also applies if you have cookware or tools that you don’t use because they’re old or ineffective. Now could be the perfect time to invest in new pots and pans. You can find some great prices on quality items at LatestDeals.co.uk. If something in your kitchen doesn’t work the way you think it should, you won’t use it. So, either get rid of it or donate it, and invest in something that will fit your needs.
A clean and organized kitchen feels good, and it will make you want to spend more time there cooking delicious meals for the whole family, or just enjoying your morning cup of tea in silence.
None of these cleaning tips have to take a lot of time. By committing yourself to each one for an hour or so, you can make a big difference in the way your kitchen looks and feels.
