Spring Cleaning Day 17: Kitchen cupboards
The last few days haven’t been too much of a challenge but today might take you a bit more time. If needed, split the task over a few days. Today we are heading into the kitchen. Let’s get into it…
Today’s task is to empty the kitchen cupboards and give them a good clean. Take the chance to also go through the bits and pieces in there and declutter things you don’t need or don’t use. Do you really need 14 coffee cups? When was the last time you used that random blender stuffed at the back of your cupboard. Get rid of the clutter!
How to clean kitchen cupboards
- Start by removing everything from inside.
- Go through everything you’ve taken out and decide what can be thrown away, donated or sold. If you don’t use it, don’t love it or don’t need it, then it’s time to let it go. (y0u can find more hints on decluttering by following the steps in my decluttering book).
- Vacuum or dust out the inside of each cupboard (starting with the top cupboards). Don’t miss the hinges.
- Spray and wipe the inside of each cupboard.
- Place some tea tree or eucalyptus oil on a cloth and wipe over the inside of the cupboards. This will help get rid of mould and prevent insects. Bay leaves in a little cup are also good for pantry moths.
- Place everything back neatly into the cupboards and give the outside a wipe.
