Keeping your kitchen clean throughout the week is simple enough, even though it might not be your favorite chore. My two main goals for a “clean enough” kitchen are addressing the dishes and keeping the countertops clean. But every once in a while, your kitchen needs a more thorough cleaning. Cabinet doors, floors, and both your large and small appliances can get greasy and grimy over time, but cleaning them doesn’t have to take all day! In fact, some of those jobs can be downright simple if you know the best way to do them!
10 Genius Kitchen Cleaning Hacks
- Wooden Cabinets
Kitchen cabinets attract oil and grease like magnets, and it can be messy and time-consuming to wipe away all that nasty buildup. The absolute best way I’ve found to cut through the grease is using a combination of hydrogen peroxide and baking soda! Check out all the details at the link below.
Speaking of greasy buildup, your kitchen floors can get equally as grimy as the cabinets! When your regular mopping solution just won’t cut it, give this formula a try. With only 3 simple ingredients, this easy solution makes it easy to clean even the greasiest floors!
Cleaning your oven doesn’t have to involve back-breaking labor, or a self-cleaning cycle that makes your kitchen smell like the inside of a chimney. I found an easy way to loosen up the grime in your oven overnight, so it’s easy to wipe clean in the morning. Get all the details below!
- Baking Sheets
That unsightly burnt residue on your baking sheets may not be a huge issue, but it is annoying. I finally figured out a way to scrub the gunk away and return those cookie sheets to their former glory! Get all the details at the link below.
- Range Hood
The hood over your range/stove plays an important role in trapping cooking grease! But your range hood can only work effectively if it has a clean filter. If you haven’t cleaned your range hood filter recently (or ever, as the case may be), I highly recommend taking some time to do it! Get the simple instructions below.

- Electric Kettle
It is very important to regularly clean your electric kettle, especially if you live in an area with hard water, like I do! Limescale and other mineral deposits can build up inside affecting performance, and shortening lifespan. Luckily it’s an easy thing to do! A little vinegar & elbow grease are all you need to get it working like new.
