Nothing says "good morning!" like a clean and sparkling kitchen. Achieving cleanliness in the face of an endless parade of hungry family members is another matter.
Empty the garbage can, and replace any can liners. Pre-spray all counters and the stove top before you begin to clean using a degreaser or a multisurface spray cleaner. Move around the room and spritz flat surfaces lightly.
Wipe Down All Surfaces
Wipe down walls and backsplashes, cabinet faces and the fronts of kitchen appliances with a cleaner-dampened cleaning cloth. Use an extra spritz of multisurface cleaner to remove fingermarks, smears and stains.
Scrub the interior of the sink with a powdered cleanser or a spray degreaser. Use a toothbrush to rout out dirt around sink rims and drains. Rinse, then use degreaser to clean fixtures and the sink apron. Wipe dry with a clean cloth.
