Find a schedule that works for you. When you’re busy with work, family, friends, and hobbies, it can be difficult to find time to clean, so try out different schedules and find a time that works for you. Perhaps you should clean your kitchen for 20 minutes each night before bed, for an hour on Saturday mornings, or in 5 minute bursts between other activities. No matter which schedule you prefer, create a plan and stick to it. Do basic cleaning immediately. As you create small messes, clean them up. This includes dirty dishes, crumbs on the floor, spills on the countertop, and other simple cleaning tasks. These tasks only take 1-5 minutes to complete, and if you do them right away, they won’t pile up into more significant (and dreadinducing) chores. Steam clean your microwave If your microwave is perennially covered in bits of food and splatters of sauce, use this easy trick. Simply place a handful of wet towels inside and microwave them on high for three to five minutes. The steam will loosen the grime so that you can easily wipe it away.


Scrub the sink daily Don’t forget to clean your sink regularly, especially if you often use it to wash dishes. The best way to achieve this is to wipe down the sink daily, after every use, and sanitize it. Small tasks like this will prevent long and intimidating cleaning sessions.

Disinfect and clean your garbage disposal. In addition to simply using your garbage disposal correctly (keep the water running, use cold water, don’t put down egg shells or onion skins, etc.), remember to clean and disinfect it regularly. Grinding ice is a great way to remove debris, and citrus peels will keep the disposal smelling fresh. Go from top to bottom When you’re cleaning the entire kitchen, always work from the top to the bottom. For example, start by dusting the cabinets, cleaning the microwave, and disinfecting the countertops. Then, move on to sweeping and mopping. This way, any crumbs or debris that fall will eventually be cleaned up. Throw out your sponge. Sponges are a breeding ground for bacteria. In fact, experts have found that sponges and dishrags are often the most germ-laden objects in the entire home (source). Instead of a sponge, we recommend using a brush. It’s more hygienic than a sponge or dishcloth, and it can easily be cleaned in the dishwasher. If you do decide to stick with sponges, be sure to disinfect them (wet them and then microwave for 2-3 minutes) and replace them regularly. ––––– Finally, if you would rather leave your kitchen cleaning chores to the pros, contact Fussy Cleaning Services.
