Everyday Kitchen Cleaning Tips

The kitchen is one of the most important rooms to keep clean in the house—unfortunately, it’s also one of the hardest! How can you keep your kitchen clean every day without too much work?

The trick is to create a few key habits that will make keeping it clean part of your every day life without much extra time or effort.

Deep Clean Once a Week

In order to maintain a clean kitchen, first you have to start with one! Let your maid services do the deep cleaning or do one on your own about once a week. The more thorough the clean, the easier it will be to maintain.

If you clean on your own, make sure you include every part of the kitchen to make it everything a lot less work later on in the week:

  • Counters.
  • The sink.
  • Cabinets.
  • Floors.
  • Stove top.
  • Outside of your appliances.
  • Throw away old food.

This way, you’ll be starting with a clean canvas and only cleaning things up that get dirty throughout the week, and everything will stay cleaner!

Got a Minute?

One daily habit you can use to keep your kitchen clean is to take a minute every time you go into the kitchen to pick up something. When you get your coffee, look on the counter around the coffee pot—is there any trash you can clean up? Anything that needs to be put back in the cabinet or refrigerator? 

When you make this a habit, you’ll be amazed at how clean your kitchen stays. You can’t always control whether your family members clean up after themselves, but this will help!

Make it Routine

You likely wash your dishes or load your dishwasher every day, and that is the perfect opportunity to clean the kitchen! As soon as the dishes are washed or in the dishwasher, wipe down the counters, sink, and stove top.

A quick sweep with the broom will keep the floor from feeling like there are crumbs on your feet. The whole thing should take less than 15 minutes.

Make kitchen cleaning a habit and you’ll love walking into it every day!
