Show Your Kitchen Some Love!


With Valentine’s Day right around the corner, consider showing your kitchen some love in February. Nothing beats the feeling of walking into a fresh, clean, and organized kitchen. It can symbolize a productive area and a meaningful space for the family to gather. Use these tips and tricks to love your kitchen more.

Tidy Up
No one likes a dirty kitchen, and trying to keep it clean and organized can sometimes be daunting.  Luckily there are a few ways we can organize and keep things clean.

    Organize your dry goods with storage containers hidden in a drawer or cabinet
    Put a shower rod under your sink. You can hang spray bottles or rags on the rod giving you more space for storage under the sink
    Place dividers in your utensil drawer to keep utensils organized

Give Your Kitchen a Deep Clean
Smudges and grease just happen in kitchens. If you take the time to clean and take care of your kitchen, it can have a fresh feel.

    Freshen up your garbage disposal by putting lemon or orange peels down the drain
    Clean other greasy areas by squeezing a lemon into a spray bottle mixed with a little water
    Stainless steel can be given extra shine with a paper towel with a bit of olive oil
    Rusty areas are easily cleaned with some baking soda and water
