We have all been there, that feeling of coming home to a disaster kitchen that’s in need of a good cleaning. It’s daunting, exhausting, and just overall just stressful. But it doesn’t have to be that way! Sure, 10 minutes isn't enough for a deep clean however with regular upkeep, cleaning your kitchen will be easy breezy. With a few simple steps, you can have a sparkling kitchen in just 10 minutes.
Getting into a routine when cleaning your kitchen will help make things much faster and simple for you. There’s a particular order you should be following when it comes to cleaning your kitchen.
Here you have tips to clean your kitchen in just 10 minutes.
1. Clean from top to bottom
Here we follow the old rule of thumb, top to bottom and front to back. If you clean the counter before you clean the upper cabinets microwave or oven range, you will have to clean the counter all over again. Let's not make this mistake.
2. Put away food items
Put food containers back in the fridge or cabinets. Place leftovers in air-tight containers and put them in the refrigerator.
Other food containers can all go back into the pantry or cabinet. All of this is just extra stuff on your counter.
Start by collecting anything on the counters and kitchen table. Put away any extra clutter or items that aren't considered kitchen decor.
Pick up everything that doesn’t belong in the kitchen and place it in a bin.
When you’re finished in the kitchen, return these items to their rightful homes.
Remember that everything should have its own rightful place.
4. Put Away Dishes
Load any dirty dishes into the dishwasher, and hand wash anything that was left to soak overnight. Start the dishwasher, and use a kitchen towel to dry any dishes that were hand washed, then return them to their proper homes.
5. Stovetop & Countertop Cleaning
With all the clutter cleared out of the way, you should be all set to give your countertops a quick wipe down using a kitchen towel and a non-abrasive kitchen cleaner or even just soap and water.
If you don’t have a gas stove top, work around the burners for this task.
6. Clean the Sink
Wipe out the sink, rinse out sponges and rags. If needed, put them with your dirty laundry so you can wash them later. Wash down the visible surfaces including facets and between the sink and backsplash.
7. Take Out the Trash
If your trash can is full, take the trash out to your garbage can and line your trash can with a clean bag. No matter how sparkly your kitchen is, it won’t feel or smell clean until your trash is officially gone from that area.
8. Clean the floors
Get out the old-faithful broom and dustpan, give your kitchen floor a quick sweep with the broom or if you prefer, a vacuum. Spot clean any food spills or trash bag leaks (the absolute worst) quickly with a damp cloth or paper towel. Grab your Swiffer or mop and clean up any nasty spills. Mop yourself out of the room, and pat yourself on the back on your way out!
You’ve done it! Your kitchen is nice and clean and now all you need to do is grab a snack and relax, but wait for those floors to dry first. That's it!
