White kitchens are timeless, but they have become particularly popular in recent years. People who have embraced the trend have discovered that there is a downside to white kitchens—they can be difficult to keep clean. Fortunately, while maintaining the pristine look of your white kitchen may require a little special attention, it’s not impossible to keep your space looking as bright and clean as the day it was installed. These tricks will help you keep your kitchen looking its best.
Use Your Exhaust Fan
When you’re cooking, even if you don’t see it, minuscule amounts of grease are entering the air, and they are landing on your white surfaces. Simply wiping things down when you’re done cooking isn’t enough to keep your white cabinets and counters looking their best in the long run. Instead, make sure your exhaust fan is on every time you cook, no matter what you’re making. The fan will drastically reduce the amount of grease that ends up on surfaces, making them easier to clean and care for.
Rely on Vinegar and Baking Soda
Forget special polishes and cleansers. The best way to keep your white kitchen surfaces looking clean is a vinegar and baking soda solution. Start with two cups of warm water and add one cup of vinegar and two tablespoons of baking soda. Wipe down surfaces with this solution to remove stains and build-up. Doing this once per month will help to keep your surfaces looking fresh and clean.
Brush Your Tile Grout
Even when you keep your tile sparkling, dull, discolored grout will let it down. To keep it clean, mix baking soda and water to make a paste. Spray the grout with some vinegar and then start scrubbing. A toothbrush works best for this purpose. The more frequently you do this, the better your grout will hold up.
