Keeping your kitchen clean takes a bit of an effort – but that doesn’t mean you have to spend hours every week cleaning and tidying. Try this quick routine so it doesn’t turn into a major chore.

  • Pick up everything that doesn’t belong in the kitchen and put it in a laundry basket.  
  • Fill the sink with soapy water and soak any dishes that need to be washed by hand. Stack anything else in the dishwasher. 
  • While the dishes soak, spray the counters with multipurpose cleaner, leave for a couple of minutes and wipe them down with a clean cloth. 
  • If you notice any splatters on the cupboard doors or stove top, wipe them down as well
  • Wash the dishes in the sink and air dry. 
  • Sweep or vacuum the floors to pick up any crumbs. 

Mop the floors once a week, and once a month thoroughly wipe down the front of each appliance and all cabinet doors. 

Get some good kitchen habits:

  • Don’t put it down, put it away! 
  • Have ONE messy drawer – you know, the one with rubber bands, novelty drinking straws and fridge magnets from your last holiday! 
  • Wipe up spills straight away, do the dishes while dinner is cooking and put ingredients away once you have used them.  
  • Keep all your cleaning equipment in one handy basket. 
  • Use wax paper to keep the tops of your overhead kitchen cupboards clean. The paper acts like a magnet to collect dust and grime – just change it a few times a year. 
  • Wipe down your cook top every time you use it - do the same with your oven and microwave.  
  • Use a smaller bin which is easy to empty rather than a large one where smelly rubbish can be hanging around all week.
