5 Ways to Keep Your Kitchen Clean Every Day

Lehi Family Cleaning the KitchenIf you’re the same as with many Lehi residents, you spend the most time in your kitchen. That can make keeping your kitchen clean an actual challenge. A clean and tidy kitchen is an absolute essential for cooking and gathering with family and friends. But, in fact, quite a few people don’t have time to deep-clean their whole kitchen every day. Happily, there’s no need to invest hours each day to keep your kitchen looking spotless and well-organized. Instead, we strongly suggest that you try applying a few of these useful tips from organizing pros to switch up your kitchen routine and keep things neat and clean during the day.

1.   Put Away the Clean Dishes First

If you’re a preoccupied and a very busy person, there’s a strong chance that you just 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 accomplish this as part of your meal prep or just make it the first thing you do after dinner.

2.   Run the Dishwasher Every Day

So long as you’re putting away your clean dishes, it really makes sense to empty your dishwasher, too. Set this procedure as part of your regular routine by running your dishwasher every day instead of just when it gets full. If you employ 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 keep your kitchen clean all day, be sure to deposit your dirty dishes into the dishwasher immediately after using them. Many people will let dirty dishes accumulate in the sink and then try and clean them up at the end of the day. Though 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 technique for keeping dirty dishes from stacking up in your sink is to use a plastic tub to collect them instead. Take into consideration using 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 round the clock.

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 definitely to keep your kitchen clean, try changing your way of doing things. Rather than doing the pots and pans last, try washing them immediately after use. 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 procedure and making a few new routines, keeping your kitchen clean all throughout the day is possible. Do you like more tips on keeping your house clean and organized? Take a look and visit our Real Property Management Utah County’s blog or contact us online today!
