Previously we talked about how you can keep your tiles and stone benchtops clean. Now, what if you have a wooden benchtop? This is how you give it its well-deserved TLC.
With these methods, cleaning your kitchen countertops and benches can be a breeze:
Wooden Benchtops TLC
Wooden benchtops are lovely but this natural product can be easily damaged by general household cleaners. If you have a wooden benchtop, the most important thing is to always clean up spillage right away. Like Caesarstone, use warm soapy water with a sponge. When dealing with raw meat, a weak bleach and water solution helps sanitize the bench. Spray the surface and wipe it with a sponge, then follow with the warm detergent wash. Avoid using strong acidic cleaners as they can breakdown the glue that holds the cabinetry or benchtop together.
There is no need to use harsh chemicals at all!
Clean and Clear Glass
When dealing with glass, it is not the solution that is being used that’s the trick. Often, it’s the method of cleaning. It’s best to start from the top and work towards the bottom. Use a squeegee then wipe with its blade. A scrunched up newspaper that has been soaked in vinegar works, too!
You can do the same with the window splashbacks and even mirror splashbacks. Basically, any glass surface cleaning works well with this kind of method. This kitchen cleaning method is so easy, even your children can help you out!
Stainless Steel Tops and Fridges
When it comes to stainless steel surfaces, use distilled white vinegar soaked microfiber cloth (previously brought to a boil before use). Dab it on stains for 30 minutes, sprinkle with baking soda. Give it a gentle scrub with a clean microfiber cloth and let it dry. Got pesky fingerprints on your fridge door? Use cloth dabbed in alcohol and gently rub it off. It keeps your kitchen squeaky clean without the use of harmful chemicals.
At the end of the day, it is important to clean the tiles and everything else regularly. This will avoid building up a big mess in the long run.
