Tips on cleaning out your cupboards


In last month’s blog we looked at areas around the home that often get forgotten about. This month we are homing in on tips of how to clean out our cupboards. In particular our kitchen ones!

 If there is one part of cleaning that we tend to put off or can forget about, it is the cleaning out of our cupboards. After all, no one looks in them apart from us, right? However, it can soon become difficult to know what you have. Plus, a cluttered home can create a cluttered mind, even if everything does seem clean on the surface. With that in mind, in this month’s blog we are going to provide some useful tips and advice that will give you that kick start into cleaning and clearing out of your cupboards.

With these tips, cleaning your cupboards will be a breeze, rather than that pesky chore you keep putting off!

Let’s begin with cleaning the inside of your kitchen cabinets. First things first, you will need to empty them! This will make it a lot easier to get into those nooks and crannies and also allow you to see what is actually in there!

*Mix a 50:50 solution of warm water and vinegar. Use a spray bottle for easy application. If you have an extra grimy surface, it is a good idea to add a few droplets of liquid dishwashing detergent to the mix. Spray the solution inside of the door and over the shelves. Allow it to sit on any spots that are particularly dirty. Once you have done this, use a soft cloth wipe the cleaner away. Finally, use a clean towel in order to dry the surfaces thoroughly and give the area a good buff down. Now is the time to go through your cupboards before putting things back in their place. Be realistic as to whether you actually need that item before putting it back in the cupboard! (Next month we will go into more detail on how to declutter and clear out your cupboard space.

Now that you have cleaned the inside of your cabinets, don’t forget about the outside of the cupboard doors.  The only thing to be aware of here is the material of the doors. High gloss cupboards work well with a cloth and some soapy water. If it’s a wooden door, then find out whether it has been treated or whether you can use warm soapy water too!

So there you have it: a few little tips on how to clean cupboards in your kitchen. Why not try this on cupboards and cabinets elsewhere around the home 😊

See you next month!
