The kitchen area is one of the most used rooms in a home, which means it also gets dirty easily. Most people think they have to dedicate a weekend to deep cleaning their kitchens, especially when they don’t have time during the week. Fortunately, you can maintain your kitchen clean every day with about 20 minutes of clean-up.
Begin with the Basics
There are specific house chores in the kitchen that require cleaning every single day. These should also be the ones you start with: the surfaces, the floor, and the dishes. The dishes alone may take more than 20 minutes to complete if you have a big household. But you should receive assistance with this task from other household members if they can.
Once you have those extra hands, you should be able to wash the dishes, wipe down the surfaces, and sweep the floor in 20 minutes. In addition, these chores become easier if you have a dishwasher. Make sure nobody puts dirty dishes in the sink – they can be scraped, rinsed, and placed in the dishwasher instead.
Add One Additional Daily Task
Moreover, add one additional task once you complete the daily chores. This should be a significant job, and it should vary daily to maintain your kitchen clean. For example, you can clean the fridge on Monday, and on Tuesday, you might have to clean the trashcan (inside and outside). You might also have a whole month of daily tasks or only a week’s worth based on your kitchen’s size.
There might also be a few larger tasks that you must complete weekly, such as mopping the floor or cleaning out the fridge. Plan this in a way that suits your life and kitchen. You’ll discover this is an easy way to keep your kitchen clean.
Set an alarm for your 20 minutes and be thoroughly devote yourself. It’s easy to get distracted, so work for 20 minutes and then take a quick break after (perhaps with a coffee and your mobile phone). Once you get into the habit of cleaning a bit every day, you’ll notice your kitchen will start to take care of itself.
