How to Clean and Organize Your Kitchen CabinetsStart with something easy, like your everyday dishes. Follow these basic steps, which you can then apply to all your kitchen cabinets and drawers.1. Gather some tools. Have cleaning supplies and a box for donations ready. Gather bubble wrap or newspaper for wrapping up any breakables you’ll be donating. 2. Assess your cabinet. Check out the way everything is organized (or not) right now. Is it easy to grab the dishes you need? Do random items wind up stashed in here and get in the way? If so, vow to find a better home for them. Is it easy to put all your dishes away from the dishwasher? If not, you may want to move your dishes to a cabinet that’s within easy reach when you’re unloading.3. Clean. Take everything out of the cabinet. Scrub down the shelves with soap and water. If you’re a shelf liner person, rip the old paper out, then scrub the inside of the cabinet, then replace the liner. A wide range of cool patterns is available. 4. Edit. Determine what you use and what you don’t. Put everything you don’t need or love into the donations box. 5. Check your shelf heights. Assess the height of the shelves in your dish cabinet and how they affect how you can organize things. Are you storing tall items too high because that’s the only shelf that will accommodate their height? Find an arrangement that’s easy for you to use and maintain, then adjust your shelves accordingly.
