Cleaning the Kitchen
Topic(s):   Kitchen

Keeping a kitchen clean will keep you healthy. There are many germs in the kitchen. Cleaning kills germs. Cleaning also keeps you from slipping on spilled food. A good way to clean the kitchen is to start with the things that are highest up and work down. Start with cupboard doors and handles. Use liquid soap and water to wipe them down. Rinse with clear water.

Next, clean the top of the vent hood. Then clean the outside of the microwave. Use soap and water. You can also use a kitchen cleaner you buy from the store. To scrub surfaces, you can use baking soda. It doesn’t scratch glass and enamel. Before you use it on plastic, try it on a part that doesn’t show first.

Clean the kitchen counter with something that kills germs. Germs can make you sick. Ask an adult for help. Pour one teaspoon of chlorine bleach into one quart of hot water. That mix kills germs. Use a sponge to wipe off the counter and a wet paper towel to rinse it. Then dry it with another paper towel.

Clean the front of the stove, dishwasher and refrigerator with a kitchen cleaner. You can make your own by mixing equal parts of vinegar and water. If you clean with this mix, you do not need to rinse it off.

Then you can clean the floor. Sweep or vacuum first. Then use a wet mop and a floor cleaner that is made for the kind of floor you have. A wood floor needs a different cleaner than a tile floor.

Don’t forget to clean the kitchen sink and drain, too.

Put the kitchen sponge and dishcloth in the washing machine with the white load. Use hot water and bleach. Do not put sponges or dishcloths in the dryer. Let them dry by hanging them over a shower rod.

The most important things to wash in the kitchen are your hands. Wash both the front and back of your hands. Wash between your fingers, too. Use warm water and soap. Wash long enough so you can sing “Happy Birthday” or one part of Itsy bitsy Spider. Then rinse your hands with clean, warm water and dry them on paper towel.
