Keep a kitchen clean

In the kitchen, all you need is a little and a few minor distractions to make the room feel really bad. Since everyone does not necessarily want the time to sponge every two minutes, better to adopt some tips to keep the kitchen clean.

Often, the dirt in the kitchen is caused by the mess that is itself the consequence of the lack of storage space. Cups that hang on the worktop, bottles that pile up in a small cupboard or fruits placed on the table, these are all reasons that encourage the accumulation of stains, dust and dirt. To limit this, it is better to provide enough storage space in the kitchen. Indeed, the key to a clean kitchen is a tidy kitchen! For this, here are some things to consider:

 

  • Make sure storage spaces are easily accessible. Indeed, the lazy tidy will always be present if the closet concerned is too high.
  • Provide storage at your fingertips for frequently used utensils. For example, placing pots of different sizes near the worktop allows easy storage spatulas and whips.
  • Place cup holders near the sink to facilitate drying and storage of the cups that have just been washed. Letting them dry will save time rather than wiping them off one by one with a towel.

Adopt a good organization

Nobody wants to spend several hours a day cleaning the kitchen. The solution to keep this room always clean without spending your day polishing is to have a good organization. The right attitude to adopt is:

 

  • Wash immediately all that has just been used: spoon, bowl, cup, plate … Do not let them stack in the sink. Why not enjoy the moment when the carrots are cooking to wash the dishes?
  • For the worktop, do not wait for dirt to accumulate to start cleaning. On the other hand, the longer the oil and sauce stains remain, the more difficult they are to remove.
  • Dedicate one hour per week to do the big cleaning: fridge, cupboard, appliances … Discard stale foods and rotten fruits to avoid bad smells.
