10-Minute Kitchen Cleaning Guide
Remove the Clutter
Remove any clutter from your kitchen table and countertops. We recommend that you do this first to free up some space. Then, if you run out of time, you can put these things in one basket and return them later.
Load the dishwasher and soak everything you have to hand wash.
If dirty dishes are in your sink, load them into the dishwasher. Soak the dishes with leftover gunk. You can complete other tasks while this is ongoing. If you have no dishwasher, soak them all in the sink.
If you don’t have a dishwasher, soak all the dishes in warm soapy water.
Put away the items that belong to the kitchen but are not in their proper places.
Don’t get distracted by your disorganized cabinets and drawers. Just put the items back to where they are supposed to be.
Wipe down all the surfaces at eye-level
Using your all-purpose cleaner and a microfiber cloth, wipe down all the surfaces, including counters, tables, and, if needed, the cabinet doors.
Sweep the floor
Get the broom or dry mop and sweep all the crumbs, debris, and dust on the kitchen floor. Don’t forget to shake up the kitchen rug. Then, spot cleans the sticky floors with a mop.
Take out the trash
Toss all the garbage sitting on the counter and stools. Bring the trash out and put a new garbage liner.
Wash the Dishes
Go back to the dishes soaking in water, and wash them off. It is easy to remove the stuck-on food now.
Wipe Down the Sink
Once you are done with the dishes, proceed to clean the sink. Don’t forget to clean the drain trap too.
