This accommodation provides four kitchens.
Your bedmaker is responsible only for the general cleaning of student kitchens. This entails emptying the rubbish as and when necessary, cleaning the floor, the sink and draining area and wiping over the cooker and refrigerator. The refrigerator will be defrosted as and when necessary. The cooker will only be wiped down. It is up to the occupants to keep the cooker clean and fit for usage by everyone. Washing up is your responsibility.
