Today is day two of week 1. We’re still in the kitchen and today the main task is to clean under the appliances and clean the floors. It may seem strange to clean floors before you get the entire kitchen clean, but what I am talking about today is cleaning all those cracks and crevices so that at the end of the week all you will need to do is to give the floor a cursory swoosh and it will be clean!
The picture to the right shows a special tool that cleans out from under appliances.
You probably don’t have one of those, I don’t, so we will need to clean out from under those appliances in a different way. Don’t hurt yourself today! I have a big strong 14 year old boy here, so I will use his muscles and my own to move the frig and clean under it. I can move the stove myself.
Once I have the frig moved, I will sweep and then mop. I will be sure to get the corner clean and the baseboards behind the frig. Oh, and don’t forget the wall. The walls behind an appliance can get dusty and sometimes greasy.
When I get all the appliances taken care of, I will move on to the floor.
Steps to Cleaning The Floor:
- Move everything off the floor that you can
- Sweep well
- Run a dust mop over the floor if you can
- Mix up your cleaning solution or use whatever you use to clean the floor
What kind of floor do you have and what do you use to clean it? I have laminate in the kitchen and I use a mild detergent. Its very easy to take care of, easier than any other floor surface I’ve ever owned.
Once you get all your appliances cleaned under and the floor done, you can leave a link here at my Mcklinky!
