9 Tips to Shorten Kitchen Cleanup

The kitchen is one of the most popular rooms in any home. It’s a revolving door for food, drinks, cooking, and entertaining. As a result, it feels like you’re never finished cleaning it. Unfortunately, using your kitchen less is not an option, so here are a few ways to simplify your kitchen upkeep.

Tips from Maids in Charlotte NC: Kitchen Cleaning Shortcuts

Multiple Meal Prep. Simultaneously preparing several meals saves money, time, and cleaning. For example, cooking in bulk will have you washing pots and pans every few days instead of every night.

Microwave Covers. Cover food when you cook in the microwave. Food often splatters in microwaves, and it’s hard to scrape off once it dries. Instead, invest in a reusable plastic cover – they’re cheap and dishwasher safe.

Microfiber Cloths. Opt for cleaning dishes and countertops with microfiber cloths instead of paper towels. Microfiber cloths are designed for cleaning. They are more durable than your average paper towel.

Transparent Tables. Glass dining tables may look nice, but only when they’re clean. Being transparent means, they have to be cleaned on both sides, which can be tricky. Instead, use a nice tablecloth that can be thrown in the laundry.

Vacuuming. Instead of sweeping, vacuum your kitchen floors. The suction allows for better pickup in those tight corners. Although upright vacuums may not fit, you could get a small handheld vacuum for a quick clean up.

Disinfecting Solutions. When cleaning your kitchen counters, choose a disinfectant that loosens grime. Use enough spray to saturate the surface and let it sit while completing other tasks. The longer it sits, the easier it is to wipe away messes.

Dishwasher. It might be time to upgrade your dishwasher if you wash the dishes before loading them. Shop for a dishwasher that doesn’t require you to pre-rinse your dishes.

Clutter. Don’t cover your kitchen counter with unnecessary things. Decorations are for living areas. If you don’t use the coffee pot, store it away. Simple things like this will be a huge time saver when cleaning.

Drip Pans. The drip pans on stoves are known to collect everything that splashes or overflows while cooking – that’s what they’re designed for. Unfortunately, the pans collect those drippings, and they get baked on as the burner is used further. You can wrap these pans in aluminum foil, so when they get messy, merely replace the foil.
