3. Don't forget cupboards
and drawers. Empty out your cupboards and drawers, sweep out crumbs and dust and clean any stains with a wet cloth. If you're up for it, put new contact paper at the bottom. When you're cleaning out your drawers and cupboards, keep an eye out for broken dishes and other kitchen accessories. Donate or throw them away and add new versions of the items to your list. Clean the exterior of your cabinets and drawers. You'll be surprised at how different your kitchen looks when all of the fingerprints have been wiped off.
