If it’s spring cleaning season or your Greenwood apartment simply looks dirty, a detailed cleaning can freshen it up again. It’s fairly common to get frustrated when you take on too much at one time. In an attempt to make tidying up your place less of a challenge, we’ve devised an apartment cleaning checklist for Greenwood tenants.

Most messes in the dining room come from food. For forgotten food scraps stuck to a surface or floor, put a warm, damp rag above it for a minute to make it easier to remove.
  • Sweep crumbs off the table and chairs and address any stickier areas.
  • Dust chair legs and backs.
  • Polish a wood table or use glass-cleaning product on glass surfaces.
  • Go with a soft duster to address display shelves with glassware or other breakables.

Cleaning Checklist for Apartment Kitchens

Kitchens usually are smeared and splattered from your daily meal prep. You might use store-bought cleaning products to cut through that layer of grease and grime, but a handful of all-natural materials are great choices as well.
  • Give the cabinets a wipe with a cloth dampened with soapy water followed by a clean damp cloth.
  • Wipe down countertops with a cleaning product suitable for your specific material or you can treat with white vinegar.
  • Clean your kitchen sink with a paste of baking soda and water. A little baking soda sprinked down the disposal will aid in removing odors. Follow it with water after about 10 minutes.
  • Turn on the dishwasher with a shallow food storage container of vinegar on the upper rack. Then wipe out the unit with a clean rag.
  • Get a cup of water boiling in the microwave to let the moisture loosen up hardened food scraps. Clear out the softened material with a damp sponge or cloth.
  • Carefully remove and clean stove drip pans in a sink. Spray the door to your oven and stovetop with a store-bought cleaning solution or an equal mixture of household vinegar and water and scrub.
  • Abide by the self-cleaning instructions for your oven or just utilize a water and baking soda paste to clean it out.
  • Use a food-safe cleaning product or simply spray a water and vinegar mix to wipe off the refrigerator’s interior an exterior; wipe off any residue with a wet rag. After that’s complete, roll the fridge forward and get the floor below with a broom.
