5 Ways to Keep Your Kitchen Clean Every Day

La Plata Family Cleaning the KitchenLike you, most La Plata residents spend much time in their kitchens. This makes maintaining your kitchen’s cleanliness a challenge. A clean kitchen is absolutely important for cooking for family and friends. However, most people don’t have time to deep-clean their kitchen daily. What’s good is that you no longer have to spend hours each day maintaining your kitchen and keeping it clean and organized. These few organizing tips allow you to switch up your kitchen routine and keep things clean all day.

  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, put away all hand-washed dishes before you start on the dirty ones. You can do this as you prepare your meal or even right after dinner.

  1. 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 daily instead of just when it gets full. If you run the dishwasher at a designated time every day, you’ll be sure it is ready for the day’s dishes. This can be done after dinner or after clearing away the breakfast dishes.

  1. Load the Dishwasher as You Go

Putting your dirty dishes into the dishwasher immediately makes keeping your kitchen clean all day easier. Many people leave a pile of dirty dishes in the sink and try cleaning them up at the end of the day. Clean up after each meal to keep your sink clean and save yourself time in the evening.

  1. Keep Dishes Out of the Sink

Another strategy for keeping dirty dishes from stacking up in your sink is using a plastic tub to collect them. This “bus bin” can hold your dirty plates and utensils. It will be like having a restaurant at home. You can then set the bin out of the way until you can load your dishes into the dishwasher. This will keep your sink clear and your kitchen clean the whole day.

  1. Tackle Pots and Pans First

When cooking, you usually leave your dirty pots and pans for cleaning later. Changing this up will be a big step to keeping your kitchen clean. Wash pots and pans right after using them instead of waiting to do them last. When you do this, they will be ready for the subsequent use and your kitchen will remain fresh and clean.

With these new routines, an all-day clean kitchen is entirely possible. We have more tips on keeping your home organized! Visit Real Property Management Gold’s blog or contact us online today!
