More Spring Cleaning - Under The Kitchen Sink

When it comes to spring cleaning the kitchen I prefer to take it in bits and pieces rather than attacking the whole room at once.  It is the only room I actually do in increments because there are so many parts to it - appliances, cupboards and cabinets full of stuff, drawers, the pantry and then floors.

Everything out!

I've been systematically working my way through the kitchen.  Right before we went on vacation I spring cleaned the refrigerator and the pantry.  I've made it through all of the drawers and cupboards.  Now it was time to do the cabinet under the sink.  I can't believe it has just been over a year already since I renovated under there.  You can read about that in this post.

It was a super easy and I had it done in less than ten minutes.  I pulled everything out.  Sprayed down the inside of the cabinet with some Mean Green cleaner and wiped it out with a wet rag.

Then I emptied out the bin I keep my cleaning supplies in and wiped it out.  The supplies went back in all neat and organized.  I even combined a few things like the sponges into a recycled Ziploc bag.

I scrubbed out the bucket I use as a trash can and lined it with a fresh bag, tossed out the trash and added two cardboard containers and an empty vinegar jug to the recycle bin.  Then I put everything away inside and called it good!

Since renovating the cabinet last year this task is so much easier and faster to get done.  It is also stays a whole lot cleaner and nicer under there too.  I am so, so happy I decided to redo the cabinet like this.


  1. I wish you could motivate me. I so need to do this.

    1. I used to dread it so much under there. I can't tell you enough how much better this chore is. :)

  2. I thank you for the peel and stick tile idea a while back. When we bought the lake place we had a weird corner cabinet that had carpet (yes carpet) glues to the shelves. Even though I had removed the carpet and scrubbed and scrubbed it still felt icky. 10 squares of tile and it is like a whole new world!

    1. Isn't it awesome?! I'm glad you tried it and it works well for you. Carpet? Hmmmmm.
