5 Ways to Keep Your Kitchen Clean Every Day

Alexandria Family Cleaning the KitchenA kitchen is a place where most Alexandria residents, like you, spend a lot of their time. That could make keeping your kitchen clean a challenging task. A clean kitchen is ideal for cooking and getting together with family and friends. However, the majority of us don’t have the time to deep-clean the kitchen every day. Now, you no longer need to spend hours each day keeping your kitchen clean and organized. These few tips from organizing experts will help you set up a kitchen routine that will keep your things clean all day long.

  1. Put Away the Clean Dishes First

Busy people tend to let the dishes stack up high on the drying rack before putting 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.

  1. 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. You can run the dishwasher at a set time every day to make sure it is always ready for the day’s dishes. You can do this after dinner or after clearing up the dishes after breakfast.

  1. Load the Dishwasher as You Go

To keep your kitchen clean, make sure you put the dirty dishes in the dishwasher right after using them. Most people let their dirty dishes stack up in the sink before cleaning them at the end of the day. When you clean up after every meal, you save more time and keep your sink clean.

  1. 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. This “bus bin” can hold your dirty plates and utensils. It will be like having a restaurant at home. This bin can be put to the side until it’s time to load the dishes into the dishwasher. This keeps your sink empty and your kitchen cleans the entire day.

  1. Tackle Pots and Pans First

When you are cooking, you usually just leave your dirty pots and pans for cleaning later. Try this approach, instead, to keep your kitchen clean. Right after using them, wash the dirty pots and pans. They will be ready for when you need to use them again and your kitchen stays fresh and clean.

Your kitchen will definitely be clean all through the day when you adopt these new routines. We have other tips on making your home spic and span! Visit Real Property Management Optimum’s blog or contact us online today!
