Open the windows, let the fresh air in, roll up your sleeves and let’s get cracking on Spring Cleaning your kitchen. First things first: Get a good pair of rubber gloves, soft cloths, and your favorite cleaning supplies.

~Wipe the outside and top of the fridge as well
~ Put an old sock on the end of a broom handle to clean underneath the fridge.
Other Appliances to Wipe down & Clean:
~Oven, stove, microwave, toaster oven, & blender. Don’t forget to pull out the crumb catcher tray in your toaster..
Toss all expired items, wipe down shelves, re-organize spice and canned goods. Put things in logical order-baking items together, alphabetize spices, canned goods together, dry goods in glass storage containers, etc.
Sterilizing your garbage can, compost bin, & sink with either a baking soda /white vinegar solution or good old fashioned water and bleach.
I usually use natural cleaners like white vinegar, lemon, baking soda. I also use diluted bleach and a powder called Bar Keeper’s friend. There are numerous products out there, I’d love to hear what works for you.
