Cleaning Checklist for Your Apartment Kitchen

Kitchens can get sticky and smelly from all that cooking. You can choose off-the-shelf options to deal with those greasy stains, but a handful of everyday supplies are great choices as well.
  • Give the cabinets a wipe with soapy water on a cloth and quickly follow behind with a clean, slightly dampened cloth.
  • Wipe off countertops with an appropriate product for your specific material or you can treat with white vinegar.
  • Scrub sinks with a paste of baking soda and a bit of water. Some baking soda sprinked down the disposal will help in eliminating foul odors. Follow it with water after about 10 minutes.

  • Utilize a mild soap or an equal blend of vinegar and water to clean the the fridge shelves and interior; follow with a wet rag. After that’s complete, roll the fridge forward and get the floor below with a broom.
