The kitchen always seems to be the one room of the house that never stays clean for too long! Whether you are cooking with oil, making coffee, or getting the kids lunches ready for school, as soon as you clean it up it seems to get messing just as quickly again.
If you leave it for too long you’ll notice those kitchen smells start to emerge, insects appearing in the draws, hard to remove splatter marks in the microwave, and of course the streaks down the oven door is a never ending battle.
But there are some helpful tips which can not only make the chore of keeping the kitchen clean much easier, but also much less painful on the pocket.
Kitchen cleaning supplies can be expensive, and when you add up all the different detergents, polishes and cleaning fluids you need, it quickly fills the house and empties the purse!
While a professional cleaning service such as Austclean can help you overcome the need for all the cleaning products by coming in regularly and giving your home and kitchen a thorough clean regularly, there are many things you can do to save some time and money for when you need to clean the kitchen yourself.
Cleaning the fridge
When it comes to cleaning the fridge, you don’t want to go wiping down the shelves with chemicals so close to your food. A great cleaning alternative to sprays and detergents is a little vanilla essence and water. Leaves the fridge sparkling, and smelling amazing!
Cleaning around the hotplates can be hard work when you’re dealing with baked on food, but a little bicarb soda onto the surface and a light scrub with damp VIVA paper towel will have it looking new in seconds.
Cleaning the kettle
You don’t want to go using detergents or sprays on the kettle or you risk contamination, so instead try a little white vinegar and water boiled up and this will clean the scale away safely.
Cleaning the microwave oven
The microwave can be a challenge, but not with this simple trick….fill up a bowl of boiling water, add a little squeeze of lemon juice to it, microwave it for 2 mins and it will wipe away the food easily.
Sparkling oven doors
Get those oven doors shining like new by soaking a VIVA paper towel in brown vinegar and rub it over the glass, leave it for an hour and then wipe it dry.
At Austclean we know all the handy cleaning hints to get your kitchen looking great, but for a real professional job, make sure you talk to us and we’ll do it for you!
