Then, keep going onto the lower cabinets. Don't forget to wipe down the fronts and vacuum out the bottoms- you'll be amazed at the crumbs that collect there (and even pet hair if you own a pet). Under the kitchen sink, soap and cleaning supplies inevitably get spilled so empty the cupboard and give it a good wipe down then neatly put everything back. Two other places that collect crumbs are the toaster and toaster oven. Make sure to dump the crumb tray in the toaster and use the crevice tool on your vacuum to clean out the bottom of your toaster oven.
Then, make sure you go around the kitchen cleaning the cabinet toe-kick area and adjoining baseboards- vacuuming first and then wipe them down. One place that is often missed is the grill on the front of the fridge- prepare yourself for the mess you'll find- then gently pull it off and put it in a sink or tub of warm, soapy water and give it a good washing. Use a yard stick to roll all dust towards the front so you can suck it into the vacuum, your refrigerator will love this, it'll work more efficiently and last longer plus no more dust bunnies! It's time to give the refrigerator a good cleaning inside and out. A magic eraser works great on the handles and for cleaning dirty marks off the paddles on the ice and water dispensers.
