Kitchens are often smeared and splattered from your daily meal prep. You could go with off-the-shelf cleaners to remove that layer of grease and grime, but a few everyday supplies work great too.
  • Wipe off cabinetry with a soft cloth moistened with soapy water and follow with a clean damp cloth.
  • Wipe down counters with the right cleaning solution for the counter material or you can treat with white vinegar.
