One of the most important cleanliness practices in your home is keeping your kitchen clean and sparkly. As the place where you prepare food and spend most of your time with your family, keeping the kitchen germ free is a necessity than a luxury. Haven’t you ever had that feeling of calm and being worry free when you know that you can eat off your kitchen floor? I know I have. Of course to keep your kitchen germ free and clean, you need to have the right tools and cleaning supplies to make the job easy and efficient. Having the wrong or no cleaning materials to keep your kitchen floors sanitized and your sink disinfected is a nightmare of bacteria and disease waiting to happen. Start the job with the right kitchen cleaning supplies to get the perfect and impeccable clean that your food preparation area requires.
For starters you need a space to store all your kitchen cleaning supplies. Do not mix your kitchen cleaning materials with your conventional ones, as you may require special and highly corrosive chemicals that are kitchen-only use and putting them together with the general cleaning lot may be dangerous. A good plastic carry-all with a label is a good way to put them all together. This makes your kitchen cleaning supplies easy to manage and grab every time you need to sanitize or clean. A fresh rag, sponge and rubber gloves should also be in handy in case the one you use wears out or breaks. There are many new kinds of kitchen cleaning cloths available in the market and are affordable as well. Polyester cleaning rags are highly recommended as they can easily remove dirt and stains but are delicate enough not to put scratches on delicate surfaces such as your kitchen counter or glass fixtures in your kitchen décor.
When cleaning the kitchen, you want to start from the top shelves, cupboards and sink then work your way to the floors and bottom cabinets. You will have to do the wet disinfection and sanitation first before going to the dry cleaning parts such as removing leftover dust and debris from the initial clean. Use special cleaners for specific parts of the kitchen such as a disinfectant spray on the sink and an antibacterial solution for the counter to make sure that no harmful bacteria is leftover. Another overlooked part of your kitchen that barely gets cleaned is under the sink- this is one of the dirtiest areas and should be disinfected from all parts from the edge of the cabinetry to the pipes.
The same principle applies to cleaning rags and cloths you use for the kitchen. Each area of the kitchen will require a cloth with various textures from brittle scrubbing tools for the sink and dishwasher opening to more refined cloths such as polyester rags for wiping and polishing the granite counter top and putting a shine on the kitchen floor. Using the right kind of tools and cleaning supplies will not only get the job easier but preserve the quality of your kitchen items.
