Clean Your Kitchen In 15 Minutes or Less –
First off, you’re going to have to set a time slot out in your day of the week that you want to get this done. Stick to it and block everything else all out. Focus on one task at hand and only one task. There’s an old saying we have heard many of times which is “Don’t be a Jack of all trades and master of none.”
Next, make sure you have all the cleaning supplies that you will need ready to rock and roll. You’re going to need a bleach cleaning spray for counters and sinks, dish detergent, a stove top cleaning spray too.
Start by grabbing every single dish, glass, and cup from the kitchen and toss them in the dishwasher. Start that thing up. Next, wash any pots and pans that don’t go in the dishwasher and dry them and put them away. Once done with that, fill the sink with warm water and liquid dish soap. Grab the stove top grates and toss them in the water. Use your stove top cleaner spray and an old towel to start cleaning your stove. Wipe it down thoroughly. Keep cleaning and spraying till clean. Wash all the grates in the sink that have been soaking in the water that whole time you were cleaning up things. Scrub and clean them nice and good and place them back on the range.
Next, wipe down the over-the-range microwave and clean the inside of it nice and good with your cleaners. Once that thing is nice and clean it’s time to move on to the kitchen counters.
Before you begin on your kitchen counters, make sure all obstacles and any pots and pans are out of the way. Now you see why you started with dishes and pots and pans right off the bat. That way nothing is in your way as you’re going about cleaning the whole kitchen. Use your bleach cleaner and sprayed down all the counters and start to wipe them with a clean cloth or paper towels. Make sure it is a bleach cleaner as there are all sorts of bacteria and germs on kitchen counters from all the foods that you cook. Make sure you wipe down everything nice and good. This shouldn’t take you more than two to three minutes if all the counters are nice and clear. Once that is done it’s time to move on to the floors
Get a bucket and a mop and wipe the floor old school style. If you got tile floor make sure the mop is clean and the soap and warm water you’re using is nice and clean as to not stain the grout in between the tile pieces. Mop from one corner of the kitchen side the side and slowly work your way out of the kitchen. Once you are done don’t allow anyone into the kitchen and let it dry for a few minutes.
If you happen to have wood flooring in your kitchen then put the mop and bucket away. Use your floor cleaners and wood floor mop to start cleaning the floors in your kitchen the same way as if you were going to mop it. Work one corner of the kitchen to the other and all the way out of the kitchen until you are done. Once again do not let anyone enter until it is nice and dry. Some carpet cleaners where you live provide great kitchen floor cleaning services to help you with upkeeping the cleanliness.
There you have it. A pretty simple procedure on how to break down and clean your kitchen and get it done in about 15 minutes. If you were to do this just even once a week the workload for you would get even easier. There is nothing worse than mopping a floor that’s been walking on for a solid month and nobody has cleaned. Cleaning your kitchen at least once a week it’s your best bet to keeping things nice and easy for you.
