The festivity is ongoing and the atmosphere around could not have been happier as Diwali is around the corner. Good food and festivals are synonymous with each other. With Diwali approaching, a lot of you must have started the house cleaning process. If you’ve been looking for easy hacks to clean your kitchen this Diwali, then we’re here to help.
Here are some tips that can help you clean your kitchen this festive season.
1. Create space
The very first step is to get rid of unwanted kitchen vessels, plastic, equipments or ingredients. Check for the equipments that need to be repaired or discarded. Sort them first and discard the ones that are of no use. Follow the same process with kitchen ingredients. Look out for their expiry date and store the ones that can be used in the near future.
2. Clean the counter top and kitchen shelves
Once you have sorted your kitchen equipments and ingredients, now it’s time for the counter top & kitchen shelves. Take a clean cloth and soak it in hot water mixed with white vinegar. Wipe the surface of the shelves using this cloth, followed by a dry cloth. Pay special attention to your kitchen hob. Give your chimney and your hob a complete deep cleaning.
3. Be creative and utilize space judiciously
Make the best of the limited space available in the kitchen. For instance, use plastic or metal hooks to hang mugs and cups; place the utensils in racks so that they take up minimum space.
4. Organize using labels
Labels can help you sort the kitchen ingredients very efficiently. All you need to do is stick some masking tape and use them as labels if you do not have any handy. You can also select different categories for different colour labels and store them where they can be spotted easily.
5. Deep clean your fridge
Cleaning your refrigerator is the last step, which should be done with utmost care. Soak a dry cloth in a lemon and vinegar solution and use it to clean the fridge. Lemon will help you get rid of any unwanted smells.
So, bring these easy hacks to your rescue and clean your kitchen like a pro, this Diwali.
