Regular cleaning is necessary to keep your kitchen clean and prevent rust and mold. However, Express experts have named five traditionally dirty spots in the kitchen that owners often forget to clean.

"Insert a knife wrapped in a towel or napkin into each knife socket to thoroughly clean them. Wipe the outside with soap and water, then leave it to dry," Jen noted.
Cabinet fronts can be one of the dirtiest surfaces in the kitchen. Wipe them with a paper towel to see how much dust and grease stains accumulate on them.

Many germs can accumulate on knobs and fittings. They should be wiped down with an antibacterial spray.

"Spray the inside and outside of the container with disinfectant spray and wipe the container dry. For a deeper cleaning, wash it thoroughly with hot water and soap and rub the inside and outside with a brush," Jen recommends.
To clean the drains, pour half a cup of baking soda down the drain, then one cup of white vinegar and let stand for 15 minutes. Then rinse with hot water and lemon juice.
