5 Ways to Keep Your Kitchen Clean Every Day

Redford Family Cleaning the KitchenIf you’re like many Redford residents, you spend so much of your time in your kitchen. That can make keeping your kitchen clean a real issue and challenge. A tidy and clean kitchen is an absolute essential for cooking and gathering with family and friends. Although the truth be told, very few people have time to deep-clean their kitchen every day. Thankfully, there’s no need to invest hours each day to keep your kitchen looking clean and in order. Alternatively, simply try making use of several smart and effective tips from organizing pros to switch up your kitchen routine and keep things staying great and clean all day.

1.   Put Away the Clean Dishes First

If you’re an on-the-go and very active person, the possibilities are that you 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 just do this as you are doing your meal prep or if you prefer instead, make it the first thing you do after dinner.

2.   Run the Dishwasher Every Day

Even though you’re putting away your clean dishes, it is reasonable to empty your dishwasher, too. Maintain this strategy as part of your customary routine by running your dishwasher every day instead of just when it gets full. If you work the dishwasher at the same time every day, like after dinner, or 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 retain and keep your kitchen clean all day, ensure to put and place your dirty dishes in the dishwasher immediately after using them. Most people will let dirty dishes pile up in the sink and then try and clean them up at the end of the day. But, indeed, you can 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 particularly effective technique for keeping dirty dishes from stacking up in your sink is to use a plastic tub to collect them instead. Think of having 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 the whole 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 remember, to keep your kitchen clean, try altering your method. As an alternative to doing the pots and pans last, try washing them immediately after use. In so doing, they’ll be ready for the next time you need them, and your kitchen will stay fresh and clean.

By changing your cleaning process and bringing on a few new routines, keeping your kitchen clean all throughout the day is possible. Would you need more tips on keeping your house clean and organized? Come visit Real Property Management Metro Detroit’s blog or contact us online today!
