Tips to Keep Your Kitchen Clean

Of all the rooms in everyone’s home, there is no room that gets dirtier faster than the kitchen. Here are a few tips to keep your kitchen clean especially after you’ve done a deep cleaning, to begin with.

Tip Number 1 To Keep Your Kitchen Clean –

Always, and I mean always, keep up with your dishes. Dishes pile up in a hurry, especially with a lot of people in a household. The main thing to do here is to always keep up with them. First off, make sure you’ve done the dishes the day before and have placed them all away that morning. Make it a routine. Make it a rule for yourself as well as everyone else living in your house to always rinse of any dish, glass, cup, and utensil that is used and place it in the dishwasher right away. If everyone does this routinely, there should never be a single dish in the sink. At the end of the day, place the soap in and fire up the dishwasher, even if it isn’t full. Next morning, empty out the dishes and put them away and repeat the process. Doing this will eliminate all dirty dishes from ever being in sight.

Tip Number 3 To Keep Your Kitchen Sparkling –

Always wipe down all your counters. We recommend using things like Clorox cleaning wipes or things like it. This includes all the kitchen counters, the stove, the microwave, the table, and things like that. It really doesn’t take much. Do this after dinner preferably as it’s when most of the time that people no longer are going to be in the kitchen (in theory of course!). Wipe down the stove by removing the grates first. Wipe down the front of the microwave and the inside of it. Wipe down all the countertops and table. The reason we want you to use disposable cleaner’s wipes is that it’s a lot more convenient to use and easier to get cleaning right away. With a spray bottle and paper towels, you’ll get lazy and want to put it off till later. The key is consistency. We are all busy. So, by having a cleaning wipe dispenser nearby always make it easy to reach for and get cleaning right away.

Step Number 3 For A Clean Kitchen –

Always sweep up your kitchen floor. Do this nightly before you finish things up in your kitchen. You don’t always have time to mop up the kitchen floor but you need to keep all crumbs, foods, dirt, and grime off the floor. With time, all that stuff can get ground up onto the floor and make it a whole lot tougher to clean later. A simple sweep and pick up things off the floor is all you need to keep your kitchen clean.

Step Number 3 To Keep A Kitchen Clean –

Anything that is pulled out of the fridge, the cupboards, or pantry must always be put back. How many times is something taken out like a box of chips, a box of cereal, a carton of milk or just about anything else and just left out on the counter? Does it get old? Make it a rule that everyone, and we mean EVERYONE must put back what they pulled out. If you allow this, everything is just placed wherever and spread out every which way. It’s unacceptable and leaves your kitchen looking disorganized and messy.

To keep a kitchen clean requires a bit of teamwork and some disciplined rules set in place for everyone in the household. Give it time and the routines will start to flow. Makes sense to do so. You have to do the best you can to keep the dirtiest room in the house the cleanest. These tips were brought to you by our friends over at out of Salinas California.
