If you’re like many Apex residents, you spend so much of your time in your kitchen. That can make keeping your kitchen clean a true challenge. A spotless kitchen is an absolute essential for cooking and gathering with family and friends. Though, in reality, only a few people have time to deep-clean their whole kitchen every day. Fortunately, there’s no need to invest hours each day to keep your kitchen looking perfect and orderly. Rather, why don’t you try taking advantage of some really smart points from organizing pros to switch up your kitchen routine so you can easily keep things spruced up and clean the entire day?
1. Put Away the Clean Dishes First
If you’re an active and busy person, the probability is high that you have 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 definitely do this during your meal prep or make it the first thing you do after dinner.
2. Run the Dishwasher Every Day
At the same time you’re putting away your clean dishes, it is logical to empty your dishwasher, too. Simply make this method part of your habit by running your dishwasher every day instead of just when it gets full. If you operate 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 maintain your kitchen clean all day, make sure to place your dirty dishes in the dishwasher immediately after using them. Countless people will let dirty dishes heap up in the sink and then try and clean them up at the end of the day. But really, 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
Another method for keeping dirty dishes from stacking up in your sink is to use a plastic tub to collect them instead. Consider making 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 all 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, on the flip side, to keep your kitchen clean, try modifying your style. In place of doing the pots and pans last, try washing them immediately after use. Thereby, they’ll be ready for the next time you need them, and your kitchen will stay fresh and clean.
By changing your cleaning style and establishing a few new routines, keeping your kitchen clean all throughout the day is possible. Would you appreciate more tips on keeping your house clean and organized? Check out the Real Property Management Excellence’s blog or contact us online today!
