As part of REDinterior’s 7 step spring cleanup process, this week we will clean out the base kitchen cabinets.  With the base cabinet clean out you may want to get some accessories to help you organize.  There are great inserts you can buy from your hardware store or from a place like Rev-a-shelf. There are organizing inserts for pot lids, corner cabinet, knife trays etc.
1.    Remove all your pots and pans from your various base cabinets and place like items together.  Pots, pans, storage dishes, utensils, etc.
2.    With mild soapy water, damp wash the cabinets and shelving. If you add a little vinegar to the water it will help remove any odors that might be in the cabinet.
3.    Plastic shelf liner is recommended in base cabinets for easy clean up.
4.    To put things back, consider what you use most and place those items on the higher shelves for ease of use. Put the things you use the least down low.
5.    Next, remove all of your food items, and place like items together. Onions, potatoes, boxed foods, etc. If these items belong in the pantry now would be the time to move them.
6.    With mild soapy water, damp wash the cabinet and shelving.
7.    Replace shelf liner that doesn’t look great.
8.    To put things back, consider what you use most and place those items on the higher shelves or drawers for ease of use. Put the things you use the least down low.
9.    To finish up, scrub your backsplash and countertops.
We’ve heard from some of you that you are liking the fact that REDinterior has broken it down into 1-2 hour parts so that it doesn’t seem so overwhelming. Is there something we’ve missed that you want instructions on?  Visit us on Facebook and let us know. Maybe we will pick your suggestion for our last step. Next week we tackle clothes closets.
