Scrub Counters and Wipe Clean
Back to the counters, this time to wipe them clean and dry. Use a scraper to remove dried-on foods, and a small tile brush to loosen soil where the backsplash meets the countertops.
Scrub Stove Top
Return to the stove top, and use the toothbrush to remove softened food from around the burners, knobs and dials. Tackle stubborn blobs with a scraper. Wipe dry with a fresh cleaning cloth.
Sweep or vacuum the floor, and then damp-mop. Pay extra attention to the areas beneath the sink (water spots) and stove (grease). Shake and replace any mats or rugs. Put away tools, cleaners and apron.
