Never forget to clean: 5 traditionally dirty places in the kitchen have been named

The kitchen should be thoroughly and regularly cleaned

The kitchen requires more frequent cleaning than other rooms. In addition to the general mess, there are numerous crumbs, grease stains, and food residues in the kitchen.

Regular cleaning is essential to maintain cleanliness and prevent rust and mold. However, Express experts have identified five traditionally dirty places in the kitchen that owners often overlook during cleaning.

Knife Block

After using a knife, it's common to put it back into the block without cleaning it. For instance, after cutting bread, the importance of cleaning the knife might be missed. However, the knife block should be periodically cleaned of dirt and crumbs. This can be easily done by turning it upside down over the sink. Jen Nash, Design Excellence Manager at Magnet, recommends wrapping a little white vinegar on a paper towel and inserting a knife wrapped in the towel into each knife slot. Wipe the outer surface with soap and water, then let it dry.

Cabinet Fronts

Cabinet fronts can be one of the dirtiest surfaces in the kitchen. Wipe them down with a paper towel to see how much dust and grease stains accumulate. Avoid overly abrasive products or chemicals; experts recommend using a solution of water and dishwashing detergent. Spray it on the cabinets and remove dirt with a microfiber cloth. Handles and fittings can accumulate a lot of bacteria, so wipe them down with an antibacterial spray.

Trash Container

Check trash cans for food or dust residue. Trash cans can be a breeding ground for bacteria and germs, causing unpleasant odors in the house. It's advisable to clean the trash twice a week or at least once a week. Jen recommends spraying the inside and outside of the bin with a disinfectant spray and wiping it dry. For a deeper clean, wash it thoroughly with hot water and soap, and scrub the inside and outside with a brush.

Sinks

To unclog drains, throw half a cup of baking soda followed by one cup of white vinegar down the drain and let it sit for 15 minutes. Then rinse with hot water and lemon juice.

Places Between Appliances

It's easy to overlook dirt and crumbs under built-in appliances and countertop appliances. Cleaning underneath them a few times a year should be sufficient. You'll be surprised at how much dust and crumbs accumulate in small crevices.
