Here’s where I ended up:
- Wipe down all cabinets [x]
- Wipe down chairs and barstools [x]
- Wipe down baseboards [x]
- Clean windows [x]
- Clean out fridge
- Clean stainless steel appliances [x]
- Organize pantry [x]
- Wash curtains [x]
- Clean out/organize upper cabinets [x - mostly]
- Clean oven [x]
- Seal backsplash grout
- Wash light fixtures [x]
- Try to get stains out of granite
- Clean microwave (added) [x]
- Clean stove top (added) [x]
However, my pantry and several cabinets ARE freshly organized. My stainless steel appliances are fingerprint free and all the cabinets, baseboards, and furniture are clean (for the moment)!
I am most happy with my oven, stove top, and microwave. I think I must have missed class the day they taught that you are actually supposed to clean your oven on a semi-regular basis. I understand it on a purely theoretical level, but I still haven’t internalized this particular lesson. The beautiful, gleaming, shiny-ness of those appliances right now, though, just may be what I need to finally learn this lesson.
All in all, I’d say this week was a success and that my kitchen could probably use another week (man is there a lot to do to keep a kitchen clean!). Tomorrow I’ll post the next room(s) that are going to get my attention.
What room will you be working ?
