  • Wipe crumbs off tabletops and seats and pay attention to tacky places.
  • Clean chair legs and backs.
  • Rejuvenate wood tables by polishing or use glass cleaner on a glass-top table.

Cleaning Checklist for Apartment Kitchens

Kitchens are often messy and sticky from your daily meal prep. You might choose standard options to deal with those greasy stains, but some chemical-free options are great choices too.
  • Give the cabinets a wipe with soapy water on a cloth and quickly follow behind with a clean, slightly dampened cloth.
  • Wipe off kitchen counters with the right cleaning solution for your specific material or simply use white vinegar.
  • Wash out your kitchen sink with a paste of baking soda and water. A few shakes of baking soda sprinked down the garbage disposal will help in eliminating foul odors. Wash it away with water after it’s had time to work for 5-10 minutes.
  • Turn on the dishwasher with a shallow food storage container of vinegar inside. Once complete, wipe it out with a clean cloth.
  • Get a cup of water boiling in the microwave to let the dampened air loosen up burned-on food debris. Wipe out with a dampened cloth or sponge.
  • Carefully remove and clean stove burner parts in the sink. Spray the oven door and stove with an appropriate product or a one-to-one mix of household vinegar and water and use a little elbow grease.
  • Follow the self-cleaning instructions for your oven or just use baking soda and water to scrub it out.
  • Employ a a little dish soap or an equal blend of vinegar and water to clean the fridge inside and out; follow with a damp cloth. After that’s complete, roll the fridge forward and sweep the floor underneath.
