Essential Cleaning Tools for the Kitchen

According to a movie titled Gourmet, passionate chefs consider kitchen as a sacred place. Well, I say it’s true since it is where you cook for your families using your love for food and passion and skill for cooking in doing so. However, as has been said, a meal is not complete until the kitchen is neat and clean.

After cooking, cleaning the kitchen is really necessary to help keep it from unpleasant scent, bacteria and unwanted “visitors”, after all, it is also where you eat and store your food. How nice would it be to have a kitchen as clean as this? Well, it may not be easy but we surely have some tools to help us do so.

In cleaning your kitchen, you need to have an all-purpose cleaner or dishwasher detergent or an oven cleaner for your ovens or dish soap or liquid. Of course, don’t forget your tools such as a pair of rubber gloves, garbage bags, dusting cloths or feather duster, a broom and a dustpan, a mop and bucket, and plenty of sponges, rags or paper towel, and, last but not the least, disinfectant. For pans and stove, you may also need pan scrapers and stove scrubbers as well. For heavy-duty cleaning, some people tend to use ammonia. However, one should be precautious in doing so since ammonia is a powerful cleanser and has been known to cause breathing problems and eye irritations for some so make sure that you buy the one for household use.

There are also some stuff in your kitchen that you may use in cleaning such as white vinegar. Its acidity is strong enough to get through the dirt, spots, and spills and can be used in cleaning windows and floors, and removing odors. Baking soda is also one good cleaner. It can be used in cleaning your sinks, counters, pots, pans, and fixtures. It’s also great in eliminating odors.

So, let’s now gather our cleaning supplies and get it started! Before we know it, our kitchen will, once more, become a nice place to show off to your family and friends.
