1. Clean Spills and Splashes as Soon as They Happen

Most home kitchens have flooring either laminate, vinyl, stone tile, or ceramic tile. A spell on any flooring can leave a sticky mess that can be tracked through your home.

In addition to the sticky mess being tracked through the house, if the liquid contains sugar, it can draw ants or other rodents that are not wanted in a home. Spells can also try and become harder to clean, creating damage to your floor, or worse; spills can stain your countertops.

Therefore, one way to keep your kitchen clean is to clean spills and splashes as soon as they happen. A damp cloth or dampened paper towel is usually enough to clean the kitchen spell. However, having a designated tool for cleaning spills is beneficial when more is needed.

2. Make Room For Everything in Your Kitchen

Having a place for everything in your kitchen is a great way to avoid clutter on countertops and your kitchen table. Small appliances like toasters, blenders, and other handheld devices should be put in cabinets or stored in your pantry.

After grocery shopping, putting everything in a designated place will avoid family members being wasteful and opening duplicate products. Instead of immediately filling your fruit bowl, cleaning it to kill microorganisms with 35 food-grade hydrogen peroxide is essential.

It makes grabbing a piece of fruit on the go safe and easy for families.

3. Clean As You Go When Cooking

If you are the cook in your household, you are likely in your element when cooking. However, reading recipes, slicing and dicing ingredients, and assuring that your food tastes delicious as you like leaves little time for cleaning the kitchen.

Some tips for keeping the kitchen clean include:

  • Peel vegetables over your garbage disposal
  • Keep one tasting bowl handy
  • Assign a family member as a cleaner while you cook

4. Cover Food When Using the Microwave

The microwave is one of the best inventions ever. It heats food instantly and makes life easier, mainly by cutting time in the kitchen.

However, food in the microwave can leave a mess if not warmed or cooked correctly. That includes putting items on a plate and covering it while warming even more critically.

Keep all dish towels and linens in your kitchen clean at all times. That means having enough on hand so that when one is dirty you can grab another.

Doing this avoids contamination, smelly cloth in your kitchen, and allows you to have access to clean towels when necessary.
