The kitchen, in particular, wears many hats in a house – it’s the centre of the family team huddle, the place for bantering with friends, a computer room for paying the bills, and let’s not forget its natural purpose – an area of the house to cook food with family and friends.  

It is that part of the house that stores and prepares the food and nutrients that are required by the body. Food nurtures the mind, body, and soul.

Wash and disinfect your dustbin once a week; it will remove all the foul smell and prevent any bacteria growth. Also, regularly sweep and mop your kitchen floor to keep debris and grease at bay.

Some smart habits that anyone can adopt in any kitchen to keep it clean and clear:

Cleaning Tools and Solutions Every Cook Requires

The following are the basic must-have cleaning tools in a kitchen:

1. The most fundamental tool that you should have in your kitchen is a scrub brush.

2. For wiping your unclean counters and tables, you require a dishcloth.

3. For scratchless cleaning of your non-stick pans, cast-iron skillets, enamel-coated dishes and regular stainless steel pots, you can make use of abrasive scrubbing pads.

4. For heavy duty cleaning of your stovetop grates, steel wool is the solution. But use it with care because it is abrasive and can scratch some surfaces.

5. For a quick clean-up of mess and spills, or to burnish things to shine, use cloth and paper towels.

6. Plastic scraper is ideal for sweeping a sauté pan or digging into corners without causing any damage to enamel or nonstick cookware.

The first and foremost thing to do in order to get a neat and clean house is to get organized and de-clutter your home of all unwanted and superfluous things. It is a two-step process. Firstly, get down to discarding and disposing, and rid yourself of all the extra stuff and unwanted clutter in your home. Once this is done, and your house gets some space, the next step is to get organizers .
