The kitchen is arguably and undeniably one of the messiest places in the home, next to the bathroom. While house cleaning may not be the highlight of your week, it still needs to happen. There is an undeniable science behind cleaning and many mistakes that you can avoid. If you want to avoid common house cleaning mistakes, you could hire Misty Clean, Inc. In the meantime, here are some kitchen cleaning mistakes that will make your life easier if you avoid them.
Not Cleaning the Kitchen from the Top to the Bottom
Top-to-bottom cleaning (which is one of our services) makes a lot of sense. If you sweep and mop your floor first, you’re going to end up doing it all over again, which wastes time. Clean your countertops and other places in your kitchen before your floors. If not, cleaning will take twice as long.
Only Using Disinfectant Wipes
Disinfectant wipes are very convenient and quick to use. This solution helps to sanitize surfaces within a matter of seconds. However, disinfectant wipes aren’t useful when deep cleaning surfaces.
Never Cleaning Your Kitchen Sink!
Think about all of the gunk that sits in your sink day after day. Sinks need cleaning as well. It helps if you scrub out your sink immediately after washing dishes so that the germs and bacteria don’t pile up.
You Never Wash Your Dish Towels
Dish towels (just like the towels you use to dry off your body) require a washing machine cycle. You use these towels a lot, making them prone to germs. If you haven’t washed your dish towels in months, it’s safe to say that you should throw them in the wash right after reading this blog.
Avoiding Cleaning the Kitchen Altogether
We understand that after preparing a meal, you want to watch your favorite show, soak in the tub, or do anything but clean the kitchen. If you’re like many people, you might agree that it takes a lot of energy to cook. Still, house cleaning is less exhaustive when you chose periodic cleaning versus waiting until the end of the week.
Forgetting to Clean Coffee Makers, Ovens, and Yes, Dishwashers
It’s safe to say that anything you touch or use, you should clean. Coffee Makers, ovens, and even dishwashers too can be germy. We also recommend cleaning mixers, blenders, and toasters. Many appliances come with removable parts that make cleaning much more manageable.
