The multitude of messes in the dining room are from food. When dealing with dried food stuck to the floor or table, position a warm, damp rag over it for one or two minutes to loosen it up.
  • Sweep crumbs from tabletops and seats and pay attention to stickier areas.
  • Clean the backs and legs of chairs.
  • Polish a wood table or make use of a glass cleaner on a glass-top table.
  • Use a feather duster to address open shelving with glass or dishware.

Cleaning Checklist for Your Apartment Kitchen

Kitchens are often sticky and smelly from all that cooking. You might go with standard cleaning products to cut through those greasy stains, but a few everyday materials work great as well.
  • Wipe off cabinetry with a cloth dampened with soapy water and follow with a another clean cloth.
  • Wipe down counters with an appropriate product for the type of counter you have or you can treat with white vinegar.
  • Wash out sinks with a paste of baking soda and a bit of water. A few shakes of baking soda sprinked down the garbage disposal will aid in removing odors. Follow it with water after it’s had time to work for 5-10 minutes.
  • Run the dishwasher with a container of vinegar in the top rack. Once complete, wipe it out with a clean cloth.
  • Heat a cup of water to a boil in the microwave to let the moisture loosen up burned-on food debris. Remove any mess with a damp sponge or cloth.
  • You can remove and wash stove drip pans in the sink. Spray the stovetop and oven door with a store-bought cleaning solution or equal parts vinegar and water and use a little elbow grease.
  • Act in accordance with the oven’s self-cleaning instructions or you can utilize baking soda and water to wash it out.
  • Use a food-safe cleaning product or vinegar and water to take care of the fridge inside and out; follow with a damp cloth. After that’s complete, roll the fridge forward and sweep the floor underneath.
