While spring-cleaning gets all of the glory, there’s nothing like starting off the New Year fresh with a little winter cleaning, right? And if you’re going to refresh your home, there is no better place to start than the kitchen. It is possibly the most trafficked part of the house, prone to spills, footprints, stains and so much more than can create filth and germs. So if you want to tackle that mess, here are some of our favorite kitchen cleaning tips for winter:
Clean Out Your Fridge and Freezer
If you’re still looking at frozen meats, vegetables and other food items from who knows when, then it’s probably time to ditch some of it.
Spend a day going through all the content of your fridge and ditching any old or unused items. While you’re at it, you can wipe down the shelves with our Disinfectant & Cleaner and Antimicrobial Cleaning Cloths. Both give germs a run for their money and set the stage for a hygienic new year.
Clear The Countertops
One of the easiest ways to keep the kitchen looking fresh is simply clearing off and wiping down the countertops. Not only does this make everything look more organized, but it also gives you a chance to kill any germs, bacteria, mold or stains forming on the surface.
Our award-winning Disinfectant & Cleaner is the perfect thing for the kitchen since it doesn’t have any harsh chemicals in it that you’d want to keep away from your food. Made from botanical ingredients, it powerfully kills germs and leaves all surfaces fresh and clean for whatever edibles are bound to hit it in the year ahead.
Keep It Dry
Winter season means lots of people tracking in dirt, snow and ice, making the kitchen especially prone to becoming a wet winter mess. Make sure to leave towels by the door or even take your shoes off when coming inside to ensure your floors stay clean and dry.
Aside from the bathroom, the kitchen is a place you’ll be washing your hands the most in any house. Make sure you’re stocked and ready with lots of soap, like our award-winning Foaming Soap, which kills 99% of germs and bacteria. It also doesn’t hurt to keep some hand sanitizer around for a complete germ-free experience, especially after touching raw poultry.
We want everyone to stay healthy and happy this winter, so consider doing a little winter cleanup to get ahead of the game. We’ve got all the gear you need to make it a painless experience and a very hygienic and safe new year.
