The first steps to take to understandhow to clean the kitchenis to marry the order: onekitchenorder will always be easier toto cleanand even cleaner than a kitchen where dishes and objects are stored almost everywhere.

This is why we recommend, before startingto clean the kitchen, to make order in the drawers, in the pantries and on the surfaces. Get rid of unnecessary objects, these only serve to accumulate dust and increase the sense of chaos, give away tools to the neighborhood or follow good waste disposal practices.

How to clean the kitchen, the table
The table must beclear and clean! Remove any objects from the table and assess their condition. If it is a wooden table, polish the surfaces (including brackets!) With an eco wood polish enriched with waxes. In the case of a glass table, use an ad hoc natural detergent and polish with a lint-free cloth. For marble tables, please refer to the articlehow to clean marble.

If the table is intact, do not cover it once it has been polished and refurbished. Only if the table has scratches and chips, cover it with a tablecloth that dates back to the construction period of your home: you can choose a lace tablecloth for a 1920 home, a vintage texture fabric for a 1940's and a canvas waxed for a house built between the 1950s and 1960s.
