Easy Tips to Keep Your Kitchen Clean
The kitchen is the centerpiece of a home but can also be a breeding ground for bacteria if you don’t keep on top of it.
The problem is no matter how much cleaning and organising you do in this area, you only have to turn your back for a while, and it all starts again. While keeping it clean sounds exhausting, the good news is that we’ve asked a few of our clients who also happen to be housewives to share their experience on how to win the war on grime.
Create a schedule
Keeping the kitchen clean is all about knowing what needs to be done and when to do it. By keeping a regular schedule, you can save time in the long run. Make a list of things that need to be done on a daily, weekly, monthly and yearly basis. For example, its best to wipe the counter-tops and kitchen sink daily. This will only take a few minutes everyday, but will prevent a pile of dirty plates and utensils from piling up.
Use Eco-Friendly products
Many of the off-the-shelf cleaning products contain chemicals that are harmful to the body. Nonetheless, because they are so convenient (just point and spray), many busy housewives opt to use them anyway. But the health of your family should be foremost on your mind, so use them sparingly, and instead, look for alternative cleaning products. The internet is chock-full of suggestions on how to use everyday ingredients in creating your own green product. Vinegar, baking soda, and lemon are on top of the list of natural products that can be used.
Make sure your drains are clear
With the amount of food prepared in a normal household, a clogged drain is part for the course. When this happens, mix half a cup of baking soda, a cup of distilled white vinegar. Pour the mixture on the drain then cover with a wet rag. After 5 minutes, pour boiling water. Be mindful of what you throw in there. Never ever pour grease down the drain. Save the used oil in a can or bottle and throw them out in the garbage when full.
Get the family involved
Kids love to help out so you should learn to delegate the tasks. Make chores fun and interesting, or at least financially rewarding. You can, for example, make it a contest. If keeping the kitchen clean is where you need most help, make a list of things that need to be done. Break down the chores into manageable tasks, and whoever completes the most wins. Hand out a reward that everyone would love to have to encourage them.
