Five areas to clean in your kitchen
1. Stove top
5. Cabinet doors
The first area Kacie said you need to tackle is the stove top, and not just a ‘spot clean but a decent scrub’.
‘I just love seeing stove tops that have been well looked after – not a scratch in sight, but I know not everyone moves into a house to a clean slate,’ she cleaner said.
To deep clean yours, Kacie said you’ll need a dry microfibre cloth, some For All cleaning product and ‘maybe a little gumption’.
‘You won’t see me use baking powder on the stove, I don’t trust it,’ she said.
‘And I will never use a scourer, not even a non-stick one.’
Instead, Kacie will remove the grates from the hob and the rings, before giving the entire stove top a decent wipe down and soaking the grates in hot water with gumption.
The second area the cleaner said we need to be looking after is the sink.
Doing this will prevent any ‘brown buildup’ from appearing.
To clean this, Kacie recommends again applying some gumption and/or For All cleaning product, before gently scrubbing it with a dry microfibre cloth.
She follows this by giving the cabinet doors a decent wipe down with another microfibre cloth.
The other areas of her kitchen that Kacie said she religiously cleans is both the floors and the cabinet doors, as well as the splashback in her kitchen (pictured cleaning)
Finally, the cleaner wipes down her splashback and mops the floors at least every seven days.
‘To wipe down the spashback, I recommend For All Australia, soaping it up and then wiping it off with a dry microfibre cloth,’ Kacie said.
If you don’t have For All, she said in a pinch a good concentrated dishwashing liquid will do.
Kacie has made a name for herself online for showing some of her amazing cleaning transformations, as well as sharing her tips (bathroom cleaning results pictured)
Thousands who saw the video were shocked and said they did not look after their kitchen as well as Kacie does.
‘I’m tired just watching this video,’ one person commented.
‘I feel so lazy,’ said another.
However, others said they thought these things should be done even more regularly:
‘Most of this stuff should be done after the dishes,’ one woman wrote.
‘Some of these are done daily in my house,’ another said.
