Well my windows and patio doors are now wide open, welcoming in the arrival of spring! I can’t even begin to tell you how relieved I am that this time has finally come…it felt like our winter would never ever ever ever end. Like ever. But it has, and overnight the trees and grass have turned green, my garden is planted and my flower pots are filled. Love love it.
And a funny thing also happens to me this time of year with all the fresh air in the house…I want to clean. I want to dust away winter and all it’s dreariness and make my home feel fresh and clean. Especially in my kitchen. There’s just something about spring that makes me want to clean and organize my kitchen. Spring is a super time to freshen things up.
Because my kitchen is the centre of activity in our home, as it is for yours I’m sure, I like to give it a deep clean in the spring. This year I’ve really focussed a lot of my efforts on making my kitchen beautiful, so spring cleaning actually felt kind of nice! We bought a new kitchen table, I put up some colourful curtains, did a little painting, switched out some appliances and added some little decorations. I’m loving how everything is coming together.
When it’s time for a good spring clean in my kitchen, I start by doing a deep clean in my eating nook, since this area tends to get overlooked on a daily basis. I get in there and wash my curtains, wipe down walls, chairs, blinds and wash the floors.
Next, I turn my attention to the main area of my kitchen and organize and wipe down cupboards, counters and the back splash. Then I clean out and organize my pantry.
Then I turn my attention to the main area of my kitchen and tackle the appliances.
I get in the fridge and toss out expired food, wipe down shelves and reorganize. Then I finish off by shining everything all up. My Frigidaire appliances are super easy to clean since they have the Frigidaire Smudge Proof Stainless Steel technology. All I have to do is give them a wipe with a damp cloth and I’m done (remember my mustard test?!). Shiny and clean!
The key to spring cleaning is to not get overwhelmed by it. Tackle one thing at a time, even one task a day if that works better for you! And if you follow a checklist the tasks are even easier to complete. So to help make your life a little easier, I have put together a spring cleaning checklist for your kitchen. I think I’ve got everything covered!
