Women will agree on the fact that a kitchen is their “office”. This does not mean that they spend days and nights there without getting any satisfaction from the work they do. This just means that this is the place, where they can distract from everyday problems and experiment with food products, cooking delicious and healthy dishes for their friends and family. The only frustrating thing is that cooking experiments always results in piles of dirty plates, accessories, kitchen equipment and bowls, not to mention the cooking surfaces and the floors, of course.
Fortunately, there are numerous ways to make your kitchen clean and shiny without any waste of your time and effort. Recommendations mentioned below will help you cope with the task in the most effective and hassle-free way.
Five Rules to Remember
There are only five basic rules you will have to keep in mind when cleaning your kitchen.
Wash all the plates and bowls right from the start. Do not wait until they pile up, without letting you get the most out of using your cooking surfaces. Having cooked a dish, wash all the accessories and plates. This also concerns the dishes left after the meals.
Having cooked something, clean the surfaces. Remove all the accessories and items you won’t need anymore, clean the surfaces and the cooking oven, sweep the floor.
Take the garbage away on time. It just does not make any sense to wait until the garbage bin will be overloaded. Take it away on a regular basis, preferably, every day. This will prevent the necessity to make additional cleanups around the trashcan.
Replace the dishwashing sponges and towels regularly. They become dirty and not fresh very quickly, especially if you like to cook and do that every day. This means that fresh and new sponges and other kitchen cleaning accessories should always be at hand.
Clean the kitchen in the evening to make it look fresh and attractive in the morning. Even if you are tired, never leave piles of dirty dishes or surfaces. Otherwise, you will have to find time to make the clean up in the morning, when you are in a hurry. It is much more pleasant to enjoy your breakfast or morning coffee in a clean kitchen. The way you start the day will affect your mood for the rest of the daytime.
These rules are simple enough to be followed every day. Do not overlook them, even if you are tired or have other things to be handled in the evening. May you cleaning effort be a success!
