I need some cleaning help.|
I'm moving into a new house in a month. The house itself, however, is not so new. It's about 50-60 years old, and for the past 5 years or so, no one has taken care of it. Pretty much everything is being redone in the next month before I move in. The cabinets in the kitchen, however, are probably going to stay because cabinets are expensive, and they're not in terrible shape. They are dirty as fuck though. There are mouse droppings in a few of the cabinets (which I looked up how to clean; soak with a 10% bleach solution?) and roaches have crawled all over them, etc. You get the idea.
Obviously, I don't feel comfortable putting my food and dishes into these cabinets in the condition they are in, but what is the best way to get these as clean as can be? They are wooden cabinets, which is where my concern is at, because I'm not too sure how to disinfect wood the best way. Should I just do the 10% bleach solution over everything and leave it at that? Will that be enough?
Tell me how to clean effectively so I don't contract some terrible disease, please. haha.
