Give the kitchen some sparkle
Clean only the spots that are really noticeable.
- Touch up surfaces and countertops. With a paper towel sprayed with liquid cleanser, wipe down only the areas of the counter
that are dirty. Next, clean the refrigerator handle and any dingy drawer pulls.
- Wipe fingerprints off glass with a lint-free coffee filter.
- Spot-mop the floor with a spray cleanser and a scrub-back sponge so you don't spend extra time with a bucket. Tip chairs against
the kitchen table for quick and easy access to those grimy spots.
- Toss a clean tablecloth in the dryer. It will work out the wrinkles and appear freshly pressed in the time it takes to clean
Stashing bulky countertop appliances in a closet, and visible food in the fridge. Gather any loose paper into a single pile.
