5 Ways to Keep Your Kitchen Clean Every Day

Dunnellon Family Cleaning the KitchenIf you’re the same as most Dunnellon residents, you spend a great deal of time in your kitchen. That can make keeping your kitchen clean a serious challenge. A clean and fresh kitchen is an absolute essential for cooking and gathering with family and friends. But the truth is, very few people have time to deep-clean their overall kitchen every day. Well, thankfully, there’s no need to invest hours each day to keep your kitchen looking decently clean and quite well-organized. Instead, we strongly encourage you to try making use of these few effective tips from organizing pros to switch up your kitchen routine and secure that things are kept clean round the clock.

1.   Put Away the Clean Dishes First

If you’re a really active, busy person, it’s likely that you mostly leave the dishes on your drying rack stacked up pretty high before you put them away. To keep your kitchen clean, start by putting away all hand-washed dishes before you start on the dirty ones. You could certainly do this as part of your meal prep or make it the first thing you do after dinner.

2.   Run the Dishwasher Every Day

Now since you’re putting away your clean dishes, it definitely makes sense to empty your dishwasher, too. Keep this action part of your daily routine by running your dishwasher every day instead of just when it gets full. If you put to use the dishwasher at the same time every day, as for example after dinner, or right after cleaning up your breakfast dishes, it will always be ready for the current day’s dishes.

3.   Load the Dishwasher as You Go

To keep your kitchen remaining clean all day, bear in mind to simply put your dirty dishes into the dishwasher immediately after using them. Countless people will let dirty dishes add up in the sink and then try and clean them up at the end of the day. However, you can actually save yourself time in the evening – and keep your sink clean and empty – by simply cleaning up after each meal.

4.   Keep Dishes Out of the Sink

One other effective approach for keeping dirty dishes from stacking up in your sink is to use a plastic tub to collect them instead. Seriously consider putting in a “bus bin,” like those restaurants use to gather dirty plates and utensils. This bin can then be set out of the way until you have time to load the dishes into the dishwasher. This will keep your sink empty and your kitchen clean for the rest of the day.

5.   Tackle Pots and Pans First

Each time you cook, chances are that you set your dirty pots and pans aside to clean them later. But seriously, to keep your kitchen clean, try changing the way you do your cleaning. As an alternative to doing the pots and pans last, try washing them immediately after they are used. In that way, they’ll be ready for the next time you need them, and your kitchen will stay fresh and clean.

By changing your cleaning style and developing a few new routines, keeping your kitchen clean all throughout the day is possible.
