Cleaning with grandmother Downstairs
Now let´s move downstairs. The kitchen might be the toughest part. Let´s start there. This is the current state of my own.
Except the list of stuff from the last post, there are many things that my grandmother did when she cleaned her kitchen.
Here they are:
Clean the stove inside and out. then move it out from the wall and clean behind it. Mom told me once about how grandmother was cleaning the kitchen at night and dragging the stove out only to discover a dead mouse. She came running and screaming into the living room (Tom & Jerry-style) and leaped over the children who sat in the sofa. So watch out for dead animals or screaming people.
Empty the fridge and freezer, clean them thoroughly and throw away iffy food. (This is no fun at all so move ahead to the Footloose song on my spotify list. It should help)
Empty all the cabinets and if you have paper covers (hyllpapper) in there change them. Put back everything nice and neat.
Don´t forget the kitchen drawers especially if they look like this. And the cabinet under the sink is not a friendly place.
Scrub the filters in the fan and get rid of all that grease.
While you are in the kitchen unclogged you coffee machine with vinegar. We make 3 -4 pots of coffee every day, so we need to do this very, very often.
I love DoreDoris kitchen from my visit there. And her pantry below. Next to it a picture of my mother in laws cleaning supplies storage, that is painted turquoise.
And why not decorate you kitchen with some fun vinyl stickers when you are done. Just like Ungt blod, from this visit.
Keep on repeating things on the previous list. Ceilings, walls and all furniture needs to be wiped with a damp cloth. The windows in every room, all the radiators and so on. The couch need to be vacuumed or even better taken outside for a beating.
This is all so obvious, and I will go through it very quickly.
Open the window and scrub everything while listening to “baby I ´m burning” with Dolly.
That should do the trick.
Tomorrow I will talk rewards and I will also deal with those rugs.
And maybe a giveaway.
