5 Ways to Keep Your Kitchen Clean Every Day

Duchesne Family Cleaning the KitchenIf you’re just like most Duchesne residents, you spend plenty of time in your kitchen. That can make keeping your kitchen clean a huge challenge. A clean kitchen is an absolute essential for cooking and gathering with family and friends. But, in actuality, only a few people have time to fully deep-clean their kitchen every day. Fortunately, there’s no need to invest hours each day to keep your kitchen looking tidy and really well-organized. Rather, we strongly urge you to try employing these various practical guides from organizing pros to switch up your kitchen routine and make things decently clean for the rest of the day.

1.   Put Away the Clean Dishes First

If you’re a hardworking and very busy person, the odds are that you allow the dishes on your drying rack to stack 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 do this during your meal prep or make it the first thing you do after dinner.

2.   Run the Dishwasher Every Day

Considering that you’re already putting away your clean dishes, it sure makes sense to empty your dishwasher, too. Take this practice as part of your daily 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, as for instance 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 ensure that your kitchen is clean all day, always remember to just put your dirty dishes into the dishwasher immediately after using them. Some people will let dirty dishes pile up in the sink and then try and clean them up at the end of the day. But, in reality, 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 other very effective practice for keeping dirty dishes from stacking up in your sink is to use a plastic tub to collect them instead. Consider trying 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. However, to keep your kitchen clean, try changing your cleaning practice. Instead of you doing the pots and pans last, try washing them immediately after you use them. In this way, they’ll be ready for the next time you need them, and your kitchen will stay fresh and clean.

By changing your cleaning approach and establishing a few new routines, keeping your kitchen clean all throughout the day is possible. Are you looking for more tips on keeping your house clean and organized? Check us out and visit Real Property Management Uintah’s blog or contact us online today!
