Step 1 - Do Dishes
Collect all dirty dishes and tableware and then plug the drain of the sink, fill it with warm water and add liquid dish soap. Soak dishes and let the soapy water do half your job! If you have a dishwasher, give the dishes, pots and pans a quick rinse in the sink and load the dishwasher. Try to position the cabinet for plates, glasses and silverware close to the dishwasher so you can empty it quickly, in less than 2 minutes.

Step 2 - Crusted Food
Pots, pans and the inside of the oven and microwave are frequently crusted with baked-on residue. Sometimes a little food gets burnt while cooking and sticks to the surfaces. The best solution for this gunk is a solution of baking soda, dishwash soap and hot water. Soak in the mix for 18-30 minutes and then scrub clean.
Step 3 - Countertops
Wipe down daily kitchen appliances on the surface and stash away the ones you use less frequently to de-clutter your work space. Spray the cooking range and counter-top with a cleaning liquid. Spray the cooking range first and leave, while you give the counter top a brisk scrub. By now its time to drain the sink and swipe the dishes with a brush and rinse.
Step 4- Cooking Range
You already sprayed your cooking range with cleaning liquid and let the spritz do its work! After finishing the rest of the kitchen counter, give the range 2 minutes of elbow grease and wipe to an easy glitter.

Step 5 - Cabinets
Sanitize your kitchen cabinets and drawers. Give them a quick spray and wipe clean. Then spray and wipe the fridge handle. Don’t forget the doors and handles, especially for the cabinet that houses your garbage bin.
Step 6 - Sweep
Fast-sweep the kitchen floor, collecting all rubbish and dump it in the garbage. Clean spots and marks on the floor with a wet rag or damp paper towel. Give the floor a good mopping if you if you can spare the time.
