Kitchen cleaning can be overwhelming. Instead of looking at the kitchen as one big area to clean, think of it in small, manageable tasks. That mindset shift will make all the difference. Here’s how you can achieve a sparkling clean kitchen every day:
- Clear and Wipe Down Counters: Every night after dinner, take a few minutes to clear off the counters and give them a good wipe down. This simple step prevents clutter and makes your kitchen more inviting. Get a head start by wiping down counters as you’re preparing dinner.
- Tackle the Dishes: Commit to not letting dishes pile up. A clean sink area instantly lifts the whole kitchen’s appearance. Get the family involved in getting the dishes washed and/or in the dishwasher.
- Nightly Sink Scrub: This little ritual is essential for me to ‘turn down’ the kitchen and give the sink a little scrub.
- Sweep or Vacuum Daily: Quickly sweep or vacuum the kitchen floor to catch any crumbs or spills. This Daily Task keeps the floors neat and makes it doable to just vacuum and wash floors once a week.
- Weekly Deep-Dive: Choose one day a week for a deeper clean, like mopping the floor or cleaning the appliances. This prevents tasks from becoming daunting. Follow the Clean Mama Routine for simple Weekly Tasks that you can do in 15-30 minutes.
