Spring is a time for new beginnings in nature and in life. One way to encourage new beginnings for your home is a good deep clean. I focus on the kitchen, especially since it is where my family spends a lot of our time. From the appliances, to the cookware, to the floors, spring cleaning the kitchen is a great start to the season. Here are some tips for spring cleaning the kitchen.
Spring Cleaning Tips for the Kitchen
Spring Cleaning Tips for the Refrigerator and Freezer
Many people forget how important it is to deep clean the refrigerator and freezer. First, pull out the food from the fridge and freezer. Second, throw away any old or expired goods. Third, clean every surface and drawer with a cleaner void of harsh chemicals. Bon Ami Powder Cleanser is a safe and effective kitchen cleaner with simple ingredients. The natural soft abrasives (feldspar and limestone) in the cleaner remove old food and dried liquids when sprinkled on the soiled surface or a wet sponge.
Spring Cleaning Tips for the Cooktop and Oven
It is incredible how filthy the cooktop of your stove can become in a short amount of time. I wipe down the cooktop after each meal, but deep clean the cooktop once a month. I use Bon Ami Power Cleaner on my stovetop to remove caked on food, liquid stains, and residue. Bon Ami is safe to use on glass-top stoves without scratching, too.
My oldest daughter loves to help me clean the kitchen. Bon Ami Powder Cleanser is safe for children and pets, so Annabelle can wipe down the stove top right alongside our kitty, Muffin.
Note: When it comes to cleaning the inside of the oven, its easiest (and safest) to leave the house and run the self-cleaning cycle.
Spring Cleaning Tips for Kitchen Surfaces
Remove everything from the kitchen surfaces before you start to clean. Empty out utensil jars and wash everything inside. Store any appliances that are used infrequently. First, I wipe crumbs or dust right onto the floor (it will be vacuumed later). Next, I clean the counters using products that are safe for our granite counters.
The sink in my kitchen sparkles best when I use Bon Ami Powder Cleanser. I sprinkle Bon Ami on the faucet and inside of our recessed sink and then scrub the surfaces with a wet cloth. Annabelle likes to help me clean the sink, too, since she loves the way it shines when she is done.
Don’t forget to scrub your pots and pans! Food can become caked on the inside and outside of your cookware over time, but Bon Ami easily removes the crusty food.
Bon Ami Removes Permanent Marker too!
Annabelle and Ailey have a little white table where they eat their meals in the kitchen (and play, too!). Unfortunately, little sister has colored all over the table with permanent markers. While spring cleaning our kitchen, I tried using Bon Ami Powder Cleanser to remove the stains. With a little bit of scrubbing, the white table is as bright and white as when we first bought it four years ago!
