11 Steps to clean
Gather all your supplies together
Run a sink of hot soapy water
A hot soapy sink before you start makes for a place to put the dirty dishes.
Scrape off all the dishes into the trash
Scraping off the gunk before putting the dishes into the sink makes it less nasty.
Soak dirty dishes
Soak the dishes while working on the rest of the kitchen.
While the dishes are soaking clear out the trash from the counters, floors, etc.
Worry only about the trash, most of the clutter in the kitchen will be garbage. It is always easier to clean with the trash not strewn around.
Gather all the items that don’t belong in the kitchen, put them in a basket
Find a basket or a box and put the items that do not belong in the kitchen in there, for later to put away. We are only going to worry about the kitchen.
Put away items that belong in the kitchen but not in the proper order
Next, put all the items that belong in the kitchen away.
Load the dishwasher or wash by hand
It helps to rinse off the gunk from the dishes before putting into the dishwasher. You can do this or you can finish washing the dishes that were soaking.
Wash down cabinets, counter tops, appliances, sink, etc
I never really thought about wiping down the cabinets but it only takes a couple of minutes to get the grime off every day so it’s not a bigger job later.
Sweep and mop
I am really not a fan of sweeping and mopping. Definitely, you will need to sweep every day and mop once a week. It also depends how much traffic goes through your kitchen then you might want to mop more than once a week.
Take out the trash every day and sometimes more. You don’t want your kitchen to have a funky smell.
Now wasn’t that easy and fast?
