We do not forget anything, we believe that we have everything controlled and organized. Or is it not? When it comes to cooking, not everything depends on what to cook and cook our recipes, we must always take into account if we have clean the center of our kingdom: the kitchen.
It may be the case or make the mistake of not giving importance to this matter and leaving it as secondary or trivial. We think: “one of these days I have to clean the kitchen.” It is not a trivial subject, on the contrary, it is really important and as necessary, or more, than cooking a good dish. We must not forget that all the food we cook will be tasted by people and that we cannot play with their health. This is where the vital importance of keeping our kitchens clean lies.

The first thing we should know is that to clean the kitchen we have to separate it into two areas that must be well differentiated: the room itself and all the appliances we use to cook.
Let’s start with the appliances …
The oven is one of the most used appliances when cooking, which is why it has a special place in this post and an importance that other appliances in the kitchen do not reach. I leave you my best tricks to clean the oven . First of all, you have to remove the grills and clean them thoroughly, the best thing to completely remove the dirt is to leave them for several hours and finish by rubbing them well with an abrasive sponge. Now it’s time to clean the inside of the oven, for this it is best to use a mixture of water, a little salt and baking soda. To clean it, it is best to use a toothbrush, scouring pad and a plastic spatula.
And the microwave? Have you ever asked yourself to imagine that such a small and simple appliance could help us so much in the kitchen? That is why it deserves the silver medal within our kitchen appliances. To clean it and leave it as it deserves it is very easy, we just have to dip a cloth in a warm solution of soapy water and pass it both inside and outside the microwave. It will be like new; It will seem that we have a new appliance. If the circumstance arises that there is a difficult and resistant stain, nothing better to remove it than to use a solution of lemon juice in a container and heat it until it evaporates, it will soften the fat and we can clean the stubborn stain without difficulty. .
When we have to clean the glass ceramics, we must always do it cold. My advice is that when cleaning these appliances it is best to use ammonia or soap to wash clothes and let them act for at least one hour, then clean them with a well-wrung cloth and dry them with a kitchen towel.
Now is the time to clean the refrigerator. The first thing is to remove all the food, the shelves and containers. The next thing is to clean the entire refrigerator and its components with warm water, mixed with vinegar and two tablespoons of baking soda. When we are done, we must dry everything well and return all the shelves, containers and food. If you want to keep your refrigerator odor-free, it’s better than putting a lemon inside in a small bowl.
To finish with the appliances, we must take care of the extractor hood. To make it totally clean, the first thing to do is remove the filters and let them soak in warm soapy water for an hour, after that time we take them out and put them back after having dried them well. To finish, we clean the outside of the hood very well with a cloth soaked in water and soap.
It’s time to clean the room …
Clean the tiles. To make this task as easy and comfortable for us, the best option is to wrap a broom with a soft cloth and use it to remove all the dust accumulated on the tiles and walls. To remove all the accumulated fat, obtain a mixture of water with liquid detergent and vinegar. Clean them with a sponge soaked in this solution to finish rinsing all the walls.
All the countertops that you have in the kitchen must be cleaned every day; do not forget that most of the food we use to cook is handled in them. The easiest way to clean them? Hot water and soap, wiping a cloth all over the countertop and its corners. Before starting the cleaning, do not forget to empty all the pots and pans and utensils and collect all the crumbs and remains of food.
Finally, we are going to clean the floor in our kitchen. Before scrubbing, you must sweep to remove all surface dirt and crumbs that exist on the surface. Before scrubbing the floor, take into account the surface it is made of; It is not the same to scrub parquet or flooring as stoneware. Fill a bucket halfway with warm water and add the recommended amount for the scrubbing. Scrub the entire floor in long, circular motions. To rinse the entire surface, change the water in the bucket for cold water and wipe the entire floor again with the mop.
And that’s it. The result is sure to be surprising; It will seem that you are opening new kitchen. You will be proud of how shiny and shiny it has been. Invite one of your friends or neighbors to have coffee in the kitchen, when they see it, without a doubt they will ask you what you have done to have such a clean kitchen.
