The Kwazulu-Natal summer is in full swing, and with the festive season just around the corner, it’s time to get your kitchen ready to host friends and family.
The holiday season is all about good food, good company, and good times. But before you can dive into the festivities, it’s essential to ensure that your kitchen is sparkling and well-organized. Don’t worry if you’re feeling overwhelmed; we’ve got some fantastic cleaning and organisation tips to help you prepare your kitchen for upcoming gatherings.
- The Purge: Out with the Old
Before you can start organizing, you need to declutter. Instead of just removing a few items here and there, take everything out of your cupboards. This is your chance to assess everything that’s been stored away and decide what stays and what needs to go. That jar of jam you picked up on a road trip to Kruger fifteen years ago? It’s time to bid it farewell.
- The Cleaning Spree
With your cupboards empty, it’s time for a thorough cleaning. Scrub the surfaces, but don’t forget to dry them before restocking the shelves. As you put things back, organize similar items together, like grouping flour and other baking supplies. This simple step will make it much easier to find what you need.
- Beyond the Cupboards: Extend the Cleanup
Don’t limit your cleaning efforts to just the cupboards. Take the time to clean other storage spaces in the kitchen, especially the refrigerator and freezer. Cleaning them out not only frees up space for the upcoming festivities but also allows you to stock up on essentials like milk, butter, and bread, ensuring you’re fully prepared for whatever the season brings.
