Whether you simply moved in, are getting ready to go out, or are renewing your lease, these kitchen cleaning thoughts will whip your rental into tip-top shape. Each suggestion was created with renters (and their deposits!) In mind.
From the OpenAn open-shelf pantry isn't only a great storage solution for a tiny rental area but also a simple way to protect your pantry from unwanted pests. Open storage makes it effortless to catch sight of a spill and keep a lookout for moths or rodents. As an extra precaution, keep all food in glass jars or containers a couple of shelves off the ground.Wipe It Away
Keep disinfecting wipes on hand to quickly clean these stains. Make it a rule that when you awaken to make coffee in the morning or some other activity you do each day--you also wipe down these surfaces.
Adhere to a ScheduleIf you reside with roommates--and even if you don't--assign daily, weekly, and monthly lease cleaning jobs. Maintain a chore calendar at a common region to help everyone stay ahead. To keep things clean, switch up responsibilities each month.
Mind the GapAs tempting as it is, don't allow the gap between your stove and the wall turn into a diminished food graveyard. Every few months, pull out the stove and deep-clean the floor and walls.
Replace Dingy ThingsIf you've been utilizing the same sponge since move-in day, it is time to throw it. Replace sponges every fourteen days, or repaint every day in the dishwasher or microwave. Hand towels and rags should also be replaced and laundered regularly.
Scrub with CitrusYou know that sticky spot behind the toaster that's been there because you moved into your apartment or condominium? Mix 1/2 cup lemon juice and 1 cup salt to form a paste.
Use a Hand VacIf your leasing kitchen has a great deal of vertical space, invest in a step stool and handheld vacuum. Prepare the stool once a week to achieve any cobwebs or dust in hard-to-reach nooks and crannies. The long attachments on the vacuum will come in handy for reaching low spots, too, like under base cabinets and between appliances.
Clean Your AppliancesIf you're fortunate enough to own one, keep your dishwasher sparkling and running like new. Begin by cleaning the exterior doors, then move onto the interior bathtub and accessories. If you don't have a dishwasher, keep your sink check by massaging it once each day.
