Today we’re going to walk you through the best way to clean your kitchen in a few simple steps.

First things first, before you begin you’ll want to gather all of your cleaning supplies so that you’ll have everything you need handy. After you’ve gathered your supplies you can start the kitchen cleaning process.

Dust everything from top to bottom

You want to start the kitchen cleaning process by dusting everything from top to bottom. Working from top to bottom prevents you from having to redo any work you’ve previously done. And while you’re doing this you’ll want to remove any trash from the countertops (and other places that it doesn’t belong) so that you can move on to checkpoint number two. 

Take out the trash 

Next you’ll go around and pick up and trash or spoiled food and throw it away before taking out the trash. Nothing more to it, this step is pretty simple.

Do the dishes & clean the sink

Now you can start to do the dishes by either washing them and setting them out to try or rinsing them and putting them in the dishwasher. Once you’re finished with the dishes you can start to work on your sink (cleaning the sink is an important part of kitchen cleaning). Spray it down and let it disinfect for about 4 to five minutes before scrubbing it down and rinsing it with hot water.

Disinfect all surfaces 

Once you’ve dusted, taken out the trash, done the dishes, and cleaned the sink you can now start to disinfect and clean all the touchable surfaces in your kitchen. This is your countertops, your microwave, drawer handles and knobs, the handles on your refrigerator (and the outside of it), and anything else that you or your family may have touched. Go around and spray the surfaces with your disinfectant and allow it to sit for at least 1 minute before taking your cleaning cloth to it.

Clean the floor

The very last thing you want to do when cleaning any room in the house (but especially the kitchen) is clean the floors. You’ll work from the inside of the room to the outside of the room when sweeping, vacuuming, and mopping the floor so that you don’t have to backtrack.

And that’s really all there is to it when it comes to kitchen cleaning. The more you settle into a cleaning routine the easier it is to clean it each week.

Tips & Tricks to Help You Keep Your Kitchen Counters Clutter-Free

Having trouble keeping your kitchen counters clean and clutter-free? Consider the following tips & tricks to help you stay on the right track and keep things organized in the kitchen.

Use wall space to hang things

The wall is a great place to hang utensils, pots and pans, and even kitchen decor. It’s also great for decluttering the kitchen counter. Consider hanging things on the wall instead of leaving them lying on the counter to take up space.

Place appliances under the counter

Once you’ve finished with the blender go ahead and stash it under the counter in a cabinet so it’s out of the way. This will provide you with more counter space and leave you with a clutter-free kitchen. You can do this with like toaster ovens, coffee pots, and again the blender.

Have a junk drawer

Another way to keep your kitchen counter clutter-free is to have a junk drawer. A junk drawer is good to put miscellaneous things in including old papers, mail, stationery, and virtually anything else that can be found floating around on the counter. Just throw it in the junk drawer.

Don’t decorate too much

Decorating is fun, but sometimes it can cause more harm than good. Too much decor can often leave your space, in this case, the kitchen, looking more cluttered than clean. Do yourself a favor and limit the decor for a clutter-free kitchen.
