Declutter Before You Start with these Kitchen Drawer Organization Ideas
For proper decluttering of the drawers, it is always wise to start with the utensil drawer, since it probably will take up the maximum time and effort. First, remove everything from the drawer one by one.
Clean Your Kitchen Drawers Before Organizing Them
To clean the kitchen drawer, you can use white vinegar mixed with water or a mild dishwashing soap mixed with hot water. Pour the solution into a spray bottle. Spray the liquid and gently clean the drawer interior with a soft cloth. Following this, wipe smoothly. Avoid scrubbing hard as it may damage the paint or the finish of the drawers. Use a toothbrush for gently scrubbing the areas around the handles and the knobs.
Keep Items You Daily Use In The Nearest Drawers
Once the cleaning of the drawer is complete, put back only the items that you need. Keep your regular items separately at a spot that is easily accessible to you. The items that are not frequently used or are damaged, broken, or stained can be kept at a different corner of the drawer that is not much used. Once you are done with the utensil drawer, proceed with the cutlery drawer. Follow the same process and you will be happy to see all your kitchen drawers organized brilliantly.

Because it will let you store knives in the best possible way. It will not only save space in your kitchen drawer, but it will also keep the knives protected from being in contact with other utensils. As a result of constant friction with other kitchen goods, knives tend to acquire dull blades. The evenly cut slots keep the knife handles secure from being damaged. There is enough space for your fingers to grab the knives comfortably.
