Cleaning Checklist for Apartment Kitchens

Kitchens usually are messy and sticky from your daily meal prep. You could use off-the-shelf cleaners to remove those greasy stains, but a handful of everyday options are great choices too.
  • Give the cabinets a wipe with a cloth dampened with soapy water and quickly follow behind with a clean, slightly dampened cloth.
  • Clean off counters with an appropriate product for the counter material or simply use white vinegar.
  • Clean the sink with a mixture of baking soda and a bit of water. Some baking soda down the garbage disposal will help in eliminating foul odors. Rinse it with water after about 10 minutes.
  • Run a hot water cycle on the dishwasher with a shallow food storage container of vinegar on the upper rack. Wipe out inside and out with a clean cloth.
  • Get a cup of water boiling in the microwave to let the steam work on any hardened food scraps. Wipe out with your choice of damp cloth or sponge.
  • Wash stove drip pans in your sink. Spray the oven door and stove with a store-bought cleaning solution or equal parts household vinegar and water and scrub.
  • Act in accordance with your oven’s self-cleaning instructions or just use baking soda and water to wash it out.
  • Use a food-safe cleaning product or an equal blend of vinegar and water to take care of the the fridge shelves and interior; follow with a damp cloth. Once done, move the fridge and use a broom to sweep the floor.
