Knowing how to keep a white kitchen clean can be tough. You may wonder what the best tools are or the best techniques to keep an all-white kitchen bright. Here’s how to keep them as clean as possible and what to avoid.
Keep the Exhaust Fan Running. For an all-white kitchen, prevention is one of the best approaches. It’s easier to keep things looking clean if they don’t make a mess in the first place. One way to accomplish this? Keep the exhaust fan on anytime you cook. It’ll absorb the cooking smell while also keeping greasy buildup off your backsplash and surrounding areas.
Use Magic Erasers. Keep a few magic erasers on hand to remove dirt, scuffs and other marks from walls, counters and cabinets. They’re able to clean many surfaces for everyday maintenance. Just use a gentle pressure as scrubbing hard can damage certain surfaces.
Clean After Every Meal. Small droplets from food can land on your cupboards and countertops which can permanently stain a white surface. Try to clean these messes up as soon as possible after every meal.
Avoid Harsh Cleaners. Skip out on the hard-bristle brushes when cleaning a white kitchen. White tends to emphasize scratches, so stick to a gentler soft-bristled brush or a microfiber cloth when working on stains.
Clean Grout Regularly. Keep those lines clean with a combination of baking soda, vinegar and warm water to form a paste. Apply it to grout and use a toothbrush to scrub. Rinse afterwards with plenty of water.
