Tips on Maintaining Your Kitchen

Aug 22, 2008
It is easier to maintain than to general clean up over and over again. You can always make your kitchen as clean as possible if you know how to multitask all the mini-task. It is important to clean this part of your house where you prepare food, cook and eat. The cleaner this place is the better it will be. Not only will that give the benefit of a clean home but also of a healthy lifestyle.

Tip #1: As soon as you see spills up and dirt in the refrigerator, you have to wipe it clean. If you have further time, clean the rest of the shelves and wipe the stains made by jars on them as well. This will make your fridge always in shape and clean and will get rid of hard-to-clean stains later on. Throw away anything that you fine in the refrigerator which are already expired or those that you will never use again. Consume all those that are already less than one serving. This will free some space that you might want to use later on.

Tip #2: Throw into trash all unused containers, jars or packages piling up inside your kitchen. If you do not want to throw them away, you can store them in your storage room if you wish to save them for later use whatever that might be. Otherwise do not leave them piling up inside your kitchen.

Tip #3: Wipe-clean all fingerprints and stains off your kitchen cabinets. This will cut significantly your cleaning time later on by doing the kitchen cabinets.

Tip #4: When you are applying wax to your kitchen floor to your kitchen floor use a long-handled paint roller. This will save you time instead of using a piece of cloth to apply the wax. You will certainly be able to finish doing the clean-up earlier and will be able to do other chores too.

Tip #5: If you are cooking, make sure you wash dirty utensils, pots and pans you might have used while waiting for the food to cook. If you do this you will have the benefit of organization before you eat. It will be a lot easier and will save time washing the dishes later after eating. You will have less to clean up and that is just the purpose of everything.

Tip #6: If you want to avoid the early morning rush. You may want to consider setting the table right before you retire to bed. Put into the table all non-perishable items that are usually and commonly used in your home during breakfast like cereals, sweeteners, sauce and the likes.

Tip #7: If your dishwasher still has some space to spare, put the things that needs cleaning. May it be refrigerator shelf, burner covers, pot lid or others as long as needs washing will do.

Tip #8: If you are on a telephone conversation or if you are put on an endless hold, maximize your time by doing some little chores like putting all unused items from the kitchen to you junk items. This way you are already saving time. You can wipe the burners clean, dry the sink up or wipe stains from the table while you are at it.

It is important to keep things organized not only in the kitchen but also in other parts of your home. However since the kitchen is where you eat and prepare food, I suggest more attention is given to it to avoid any household and food-borne infections. The cleaner your kitchen is the less likely those pathogenic bacteria will be able to grow. With this, there is nothing to fear at all.
