Three Unexpected Things to Clean in Your Kitchen

If you’re anything like me, you probably have a kitchen routine you stick closely to make sure your kitchen is cleaned. You may stay on top of the dishes, keep the trash and recycling from piling up, and wipe down the counters regularly. You may even do some deep cleaning such as cleaning the inside of the oven and microwave. However, let’s talk about three things in your kitchen you should be cleaning but probably aren’t.


3 Unexpected things you should clean in your kitchen


  1. Your toaster. First, you should be cleaning your toaster. Cleaning the outside of it to make sure it looks nice and shiny is one thing, but you should also be cleaning the inside as well. If you haven’t cleaned the inside lately, then there is probably a mess of old burnt bits and crumbs.
  2. Your oven mitts. Next, another often neglected kitchen item is your oven mitts. Your oven mitts should be cleaned regularly as well. If you take a good look at your oven mitts, you may notice that they are susceptible to food spills and stains. Luckily, they are easy to wash. Just toss them in with your next load of towels, and you should be good to go.
  3. Your range hood filters. Finally, when you deep clean your kitchen, you cannot forget to clean your range hood filters. There is probably not a greasier spot in your kitchen, and if this filter is not cleaned properly, it can affect the filter's efficiency. Luckily, all you have to do is put it in the dishwasher on a normal cycle.


In addition to these three things, you should also remember to wash your dish towels and wipe down the interior of your sink. None of these things have to be cleaned on a daily or even weekly basis, but it’s important not to forget about the as well.
