Nooks and Crannies!
Have you checked behind your stove, or beside your refrigerator lately? These are easily forgotten spots in our cleaning routine, but important in the grand cleaning scheme!
I have a challenge for you... sometime this week, the easiest day for this is mopping day since you will already have the supplies out, pull out stove and mop back there! If you can pull out the fridge, do this area as well. If you can't pull out the fridge go ahead and see if you can sweep beside it (you would be surprised what will get pulled out from these areas)! These areas often get overlooked, but have the potential to be quite yucky!
Trust me, once you've done this you will feel like you are in a brand new kitchen!
Since we are hitting the forgotten areas, go ahead and clean off all the cabinet fronts. Check out the rag after this little job... you never realize just how dirty those get. And go ahead and hit them with a wood duster, this will help their conditioning and shine!
The cleaner we keep things, the better they look and the longer they will last!
