When it comes to cooking I think there are 2 types of people:
#1. They like to cook, but don’t like cleaning the kitchen afterwards.
#2. Who doesn’t enjoy cooking, but don’t mind cleaning after someone who cooked.
If you like equally cooking and cleaning after cooking you are that very rear kind, which officially doesn’t even exist hahaha
Here are my quick cleaning and keeping kitchen clean tips:
When you prepare chicken or any other kind of meat which requires sprinkling salt, rubbing with spices, I like to use a plastic wrap on the counter, which helps me with quick clean up. After I’m done, I just take wrap corners, wrap, throw it away and done! No washinh, scrubing of counter or bowl is needed.
When it come to taking trash, I am that kind of person who does not mind taking trash, but I don’t want to put new trash bags in the trash can each time. I came up with the idea, that I load my trash can with 5-10 or even more trash bags at once and then when I take the trash out, I don’t have to load it each time and my trash can never gets dirty so I litteraly never need to wash it! Whenever it gets down to 2, I would load more.
Clean oven it’s a great start for cooking. When you buy an oven, always choose with self – cleaning option. You just turn on the self – cleaning option, and forget about it for 3.5-4 hours. I put my aluminum baking sheets in there as well, they come out as clean as bran new. Just whipe off the ash and it’s ready to go.
Keeping a clean kitchen is essential for maintaining a healthy and hygienic environment. Here are a few more tips for keeping your kitchen spotless:
- Clean as you go: Instead of waiting until the end of the day to clean up, clean up spills and messes as they happen. This will make the cleaning process easier and quicker in the long run.
- Use the right cleaning products: Different surfaces require different cleaning products. For example, granite countertops should be cleaned with a mild detergent and warm water, while stainless steel appliances should be cleaned with a specialized stainless steel cleaner.
- Organize and declutter: Keep your kitchen organized by regularly decluttering and getting rid of items that you no longer use. This will make it easier to keep your kitchen clean and make it more pleasant to cook in.
- Clean the refrigerator and pantry: Make sure to regularly clean out your refrigerator and pantry, throwing away expired or spoiled food, and wiping down the surfaces.
- Don’t forget the small appliances: Small appliances such as toasters, coffee makers, and blenders should be cleaned on a regular basis to prevent build-up of food particles and bacteria.
- Deep clean: Set aside time each week or month to do a deep clean of your kitchen. This includes cleaning the oven, scrubbing the sink and faucet, and cleaning the floors.
- Sanitize: Sanitizing is important in the kitchen to prevent the spread of germs and bacteria. Use a sanitizing spray or solution on cutting boards, countertops, and other surfaces to ensure they are safe to use.
By implementing these tips, you can ensure that your kitchen stays clean and hygienic, making it a pleasant and safe place to cook and eat.
Let’s get cooking!
