Deep Clean the Oven:
With all the holiday cooking, your oven can accumulate a lot of grime. Use a commercial oven cleaner or a mixture of baking soda and water to scrub away the grease and food residues.
Polish Stainless Steel Appliances:
Give your stainless steel appliances a shiny, streak-free finish by using a specialized stainless steel cleaner. It will remove fingerprints and smudges, leaving your kitchen looking pristine.
Clean out the Refrigerator:
Before you start stocking up on holiday ingredients, clean out your refrigerator. Toss expired items, wipe down shelves, and use a solution of water and vinegar to remove any lingering odors.
Empty and Clean the Dishwasher:
Run an empty cycle with a dishwasher cleaner or a mixture of vinegar and baking soda to eliminate any built-up soap scum and food particles. Wipe down the seals and edges to prevent mold growth.
Refresh Garbage Disposal:
To eliminate odors from the garbage disposal, grind ice cubes made with vinegar, followed by a few lemon or orange peels. This will leave your disposal smelling fresh.
Wash Kitchen Linens:
Clean kitchen towels, oven mitts, and aprons. This ensures a fresh start for the holiday season and prevents any unwanted odors or stains.
Organize Pantry and Cabinets:
Take inventory of your pantry and cabinets. Discard expired items, organize the shelves, and make a list of items you need for holiday recipes.
Scrub Countertops and Backsplash:
Wipe down and disinfect countertops and the backsplash. Pay extra attention to areas around the stove and sink, where spills and splatters are common during holiday cooking.
A sharp knife is crucial for efficient and safe holiday meal preparation. Sharpen your knives to ensure they are in top condition for slicing and dicing.
