12 Things in the kitchen you can put in the dishwasher
- Switch plate cover & Outlet covers
- Vent hood filters & covers (check your manufacture directions first)
- Stove top drip pans
- Glass canisters (not the rubber gaskets)
- Coffee carafe (top rack)
- Glass lighting globes/covers
- Salt & Pepper shakers (dry completely before use)
- Trash can lid
- Floor vent grate
- Dish scrubbers
- Sink stoppers
- Stove knobs (I put them in the silverware tray)
This is how we do it when professionally cleaning for our clients:
Start at the top and work your way down so do the cobwebs on the ceiling and wall corners first.
Next, go ahead and gather up all the things you can put in the dishwasher and get it going. This will include your light fixture covers which are on the ceiling so still working from top down. Now, you’ll be satisfied that you’re such a work horse accomplishing multiple items at once!
You may choose to do the major appliances all in one day. I’m not such a glutton for punishment so I do the stove one Saturday and the refrigerator/freezer the next.
When you get to the counters, start on the left of the stove and work your way around the room. Be sure to pull everything away from the walls and clean behind those things. Don’t forget to wash anything and everything you keep sitting out on your counters such as canisters, picture frames, lamps, small appliances etc.
Check each completed task off the list as you go! There is a certain amount of satisfaction to be derived from checking items off a list!
