5 Ways to Keep Your Kitchen Clean Every Day

La Mesa Family Cleaning the KitchenIf you’re like so many La Mesa residents, you actually spend a great deal of your time in your kitchen. That can make keeping your kitchen clean a real challenge and concern. A neat and clean kitchen is an absolute essential for cooking and gathering with family and friends. But in actuality, only a few number of people have time to deep-clean their kitchen every day. Luckily, there’s no need to invest hours each day to keep your kitchen looking spruced up and really organized. On the contrary, just try adopting some of these brilliant suggestions from organizing pros to switch up your kitchen routine and maintain things spotless the whole day.

1.   Put Away the Clean Dishes First

If you’re a really active and busy person, chances are high that you are leaving the dishes on your drying rack stacked up pretty high before you can 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 work on this together with your meal prep or 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 a good idea to empty your dishwasher, too. Retain this process as part of your usual routine by running your dishwasher every day instead of just when it gets full. If you use the dishwasher at the same time every day, in particular 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 continue to keep your kitchen clean all day, be certain to put your dirty dishes into the dishwasher immediately after using them. Most people will let dirty dishes accumulate in the sink and then try and clean them up at the end of the day. But actually, 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 strategy for keeping dirty dishes from stacking up in your sink is to use a plastic tub to collect them instead. Take into account putting up 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 entire 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 in fact, to keep your kitchen clean, try amending your process. In contrast to doing the pots and pans last, try washing them immediately after you use them. By doing this, 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 practicing a few new routines, keeping your kitchen clean all throughout the day is possible. Would you want more tips on keeping your house clean and organized?
