If you are like most Kissimmee residents, you like hanging out in your kitchen most of the time. That could make keeping your kitchen clean a challenging task. You need to have a clean kitchen for cooking and hanging out with family and friends. However, the majority of us don’t have the time to deep-clean the kitchen every day. What’s good is that you no longer have to spend hours each day to maintain your kitchen and keep it clean and organized. Instead, these smart tips can help you start a kitchen routine to keep your things clean all day long.
- Put Away the Clean Dishes First
If you are a busy person, it’s likely that your dishes are piled up high on your drying rack 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. This can be part of your regular meal preparation or as something, you do right after dinner.
- Run the Dishwasher Every Day
When you put away your clean dishes, you can empty your dishwasher at the same time. Make this step part of your routine by running your dishwasher every day instead of just when it gets full. It is ideal to run the dishwasher at the same time every day. You can do it after dinner or after you clean up the breakfast dishes. This way, it is always ready for the day’s dishes.
- Load the Dishwasher as You Go
Put your dirty dishes into the dishwasher right after using them. This will help keep your kitchen clean throughout the day. Most people just allow the dirty dishes to pile up in the sink and clean them at the end of the day. You actually save more time– and keep a clean sink –if you simply clean up after each meal.
- 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. Like in restaurants, these “bus bins” hold your dirty plates and utensils. You can set this bin to the side until you load all the dishes into the dishwasher. With this tip, you can keep your sink empty and your kitchen clean all day.
- Tackle Pots and Pans First
Each time you cook, you likely just set the dirty pots and pans aside to clean them later. Changing this up will be a big step to keeping your kitchen clean. Try washing the pots and pans immediately instead of doing them last. This way you keep your kitchen fresh and clean.
