5 Ways to Keep Your Kitchen Clean Every Day

Central Family Cleaning the KitchenMost Central residents, like you, spend a lot of time in their kitchen. This makes maintaining your kitchen’s cleanliness a challenge. A clean kitchen is absolutely important for cooking for family and friends. But the majority of us do not have the luxury of time to deep-clean the kitchen every day. Now, you no longer need to spend hours each day keeping your kitchen clean and organized. Now, these smart tips from expert organizers will help you create a kitchen routine so you can keep things clean all day long.

  1. Put Away the Clean Dishes First

Busy people tend to let the dishes stack up high on the drying rack before putting them away. To keep your kitchen clean, start by putting away all hand-washed dishes before you start on the dirty ones. You can do this as you prepare your meal or even right after dinner.

  1. Run the Dishwasher Every Day

Empty your dishwasher while you put away your clean dishes. Make this step part of your routine by running your dishwasher every day instead of just when it gets full. Specify a time to run the dishwasher every day. That way it will always be ready for the day’s dishes. A good time to do this is either after dinner or after cleaning up the breakfast dishes.

  1. Load the Dishwasher as You Go

To keep your kitchen clean, make sure you put the dirty dishes in the dishwasher right after using them. Most people let their dirty dishes stack up in the sink before cleaning them at the end of the day. When you clean up after every meal, you save more time and keep your sink clean.

  1. Keep Dishes Out of the Sink

Another strategy for keeping dirty dishes from stacking up in your sink is to use a plastic tub to collect them instead. This can be your own bus bin, like the ones they use in restaurants to collect dirty plates and utensils. This bin can be put to the side until it’s time to load the dishes into the dishwasher. This keeps your sink empty and your kitchen cleans the entire day.

  1. Tackle Pots and Pans First

When you cook, you often set aside your dirty pots and pans for cleaning later. However, here is a different approach that will help keep your kitchen clean. Wash pots and pans right after using them instead of waiting to do them last. When you do this, they will be ready for the next use and your kitchen will remain fresh and clean.

Given these new strategies and routines, it is now possible to keep your kitchen clean all day. Do you want more tips on keeping a clean and organized house? Visit Real Property Management Baton Rouge’s blog or contact us online today!
