A kitchen is a place where most Sugar Hill residents, like you, spend a lot of their time. This could make the kitchen upkeep a challenge. A clean kitchen is ideal for cooking and getting together with family and friends. However, very few people have the time to deep-clean their kitchen every day. We just want our kitchens to be clean and organized without investing too many hours each day to do so. With these few organizing tips, you can switch up your kitchen routine and keep things clean all day long.
- Put Away the Clean Dishes First
If you are always busy, chances are that you let the dishes on your drying rack pile up really 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. This could be part of your meal preparation or the thing you do immediately after dinner.
- Run the Dishwasher Every Day
Empty your dishwasher while you put away your clean dishes. 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.
- Load the Dishwasher as You Go
To ensure your kitchen is clean all day, put your dirty dishes in the dishwasher immediately. Many people just leave a pile of dirty dishes in the sink and try cleaning them up at the end of the day. Simply clean up after each meal to keep your sink clean and save yourself time in the evening.
- 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. You can set this bin aside until you have the time to load the dishes into the dishwasher. This will keep your sink clear and your kitchen cleans the whole day.
- Tackle Pots and Pans First
After you cook, most people would just set aside the dirty pots and pans for cleaning later. Try this approach, instead, to keep your kitchen clean. Wash dirty pots and pans immediately after using instead of doing them last. This keeps your kitchen fresh and clean before the dinner dishes start coming in.
When you change your strategy and routine, you can have a kitchen that is clean the whole day. We have other tips on making your home spic and span! Visit Real Property Management Executives Greater Atlanta’s blog or contact us online today!
