I usually clean my kitchen good once a week, and then just wipe down little messes in the meantime. I think the most important rooms in the house to keep clean are the kitchen and the bathrooms, so if I don’t have time to clean the whole house, I at least clean those rooms. When my kitchen is sparkling clean, life just feels so much better! I don’t always deep clean my kitchen because I don’t always have time, but when I do have time, it is one of the best ways for me to feel like I accomplished something really good! When my house is a dirty mess, I swear it affects my mood, big time!
Today I am going to tell you step by step how I deep clean my kitchen. Miss 16 year old has chores to do around here, and I have found that if I make her a detailed list of exactly what to do to clean each room in the house, she does a much better job! Seriously people, I worry about what her own house is going to look like one of these days! She is such a pig! Please tell me she is going to grow out of it and care about how her house looks! PLEASE!!! When I have cleaned a room and am feeling so good about it, she will walk in, and I will say doesn’t this room look so much better now? She will respond by saying, “I don’t even notice”. Seriously??? She swears that she does not notice a difference when the house is dirty or clean. That is worrisome!
First I want to show you the basic necessities that I use to clean my kitchen. Be forewarned, I am a cleaning product junkie! Seriously, I have a problem. I also use microfiber rags to clean with (not pictured), and hot water.
