If you are like most Trinidad residents, you like hanging out in your kitchen most of the time. This may make kitchen upkeep challenges. A clean kitchen is absolutely important for cooking for family and friends. But most people do not have enough time to deep-clean their kitchen every day. The good news is that you don’t need to invest hours each day just make your kitchen look clean and organized. 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
Busy people have the tendency to let the dishes pile up on the drying rack before putting them away in the cabinet. 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. 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. 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 can be your own bus bin, like the ones they use in restaurants to collect dirty plates and utensils. You can set this bin aside until you have the time to load the dishes into the dishwasher. By doing this, your sink remains empty and your kitchen cleans all day.
- Tackle Pots and Pans First
After you cook, most people would just set aside the dirty pots and pans for cleaning later. But for your kitchen to remain clean, you can give this approach a try. Wash dirty pots and pans immediately after using instead of doing them last. This way you keep your kitchen fresh and clean.
When you change your strategy and routine, you can have a kitchen that is clean the whole day. Would you like other tips on cleaning and organizing your house? Visit Real Property Management DC Metro’s blog or contact us online today!
