If it’s spring cleaning season or your Fishers apartment really looks grimy, a good cleaning will have it looking its best again. It’s fairly common to get frustrated when taking on more than you should at once.

Cleaning Checklist for Apartment Kitchens

Kitchens usually are smeared and splattered from all that cooking. You can use off-the-shelf cleaners to remove those greasy stains, but some everyday options are great choices as well.
  • Give the cabinets a wipe with a cloth dampened with soapy water followed by a another clean cloth.
  • Clean off counters with the right cleaning solution for the counter material or you might consider white vinegar.
  • Wash out sinks with a solution consisting of water and baking soda. A few shakes of baking soda sprinked down the disposal will help deodorize it. Wash it away with water after about 10 minutes.
  • Run the dishwasher with a shallow food storage container of vinegar inside. Then wipe out the unit with a clean rag.
  • Heat a cup of water to a boil in the microwave to let the steam work on any stuck-on gunk. Clear out the softened material with your choice of damp cloth or sponge.
  • You can remove and wash stove drip pans in the sink. Spray the door to your oven and stovetop with a cleaner or a one-to-one mix of vinegar and water and use a little elbow grease.
  • Abide by your oven’s self-cleaning instructions or simply utilize the mix of baking soda and water to scrub it out.
  • Use a mild soap or simply spray a water and vinegar mix to clean the fridge inside and out; follow with a sponge of soft cloth. After that’s complete, roll the fridge forward and use a broom to sweep the floor.
