Gather your cleaning supplies and store them together in one place. Make sure they are organized and easy to access. Properly storing and organization these cleaning supplies the first time may take a few extra minutes, but it will save you a lot of time in the long run. A cleaning bin or baskets underneath the kitchen sink are great places to store everything you’ll need. Here we provide you a general list of cleaning supplies to get you started:
All-purpose countertop spray
Dish soap or dishwasher detergent
Scrub brush for dishes
Drying rack or dish towels
Dry/wet cloth sweeper
Make sure all clean dishes in the dishwasher have been put away. Fill the sink with warm, soapy water.
(Note: If you do not have a double sink, dump any liquid materials or sauces from your dishes down the sink first.)
Scrape all dishes into the garbage can or garbage disposal. Place dishes either into the dishwasher or into the sink to soak. For dirty, large pots and pans, place them on the countertop and fill them with soapy water. Let the pots soak for a few minutes before attempting to remove the stains or food again.
Place all garbage into the trash can. Sort any recyclable materials.
Put away any food items. Store it in airtight containers and place the containers in the
fridge or on the cupboards.
Store away any item that don’t belong in the kitchen in order to keep the counterparts clean of stuff . The stuff can be put in the basket or stored in airtight containers.
Spray the surface of the stove, tabletop and countertops with an all-purpose cleaner and wipe with a microfiber cloth or paper towel. If the stove has any burned-on messes, spray and let it sit for a few minutes while you complete other tasks. Clean the inside of the stove as well. Wipe away any large messes from cabinets. Don't forget to use the gloves if your skin is sensitive to the detergents.
Now, wash all of the dishes in the sink and place them on a drying rack or towel on the counter (or recruit a drying helper!). Wipe down the sink and faucet after cleaning away all the dishes.
Sweep the floor and spot-clean any spills.
Rinse the dishcloths. Hang cloths and towels up to dry or toss in the laundry if dirty.
Take out the trash and recycling.
Enjoy your clean kitchen with a good cup of tea!
