The Kwazulu-Natal summer is definitely in full swing, and with the festive season just around the corner, you might be looking at your kitchen cabinets, wondering if you’re ready to host the influx of friends and family.

If you feel a bit overwhelmed, you don’t have to worry, we have some great organisation and cleaning tips that will see your kitchen sparkling and ready when the guests knock on the door.

Starting out
The first step, apart from not giving in to that overwhelming feeling, is to start purging. This means instead of just removing certain items, you should instead pack everything out, removing all the items from your cupboards. This will give you the ability to look at everything that was packed in there, and decide what should stay, and what should go. Just on the side, that bottle of jam you bought at a stall on the way to the Kruger fifteen years ago? It’s time to let go.

The cleaning spree
Seeing as your cupboards will be empty, be sure to clean the surfaces before you start putting things back. Take time to scrub and clean your cupboards, but also make sure that you dry the surfaces before restocking the shelves. While you’re repacking, be sure to group similar items like flour and other baking aids together, this will make fetching items that much easier.

Don’t stop at the pantry
Once you’re done with your kitchen cabinets, you should take the time to clean out the other storage spaces in the room. Most notably, be sure to clean out your refrigerator and freezer. Not only will cleaning it out save some space for the coming festivities, you can also take this time to add staples like milk, butter and even bread to ensure that you’re ready for anything the season brings.
