Maintaining a clean kitchen is essential to cooking successful meals. A cluttered and dirty kitchen can drain your energy and make it difficult to cook anything at all. To keep your kitchen clean, there are a few principles you should follow. 

Some of the best ways to keep your kitchen clean include:

Clean as you go

The concept of cleaning as you go is fundamental to maintaining a clean kitchen. It means that you clean up as you’re cooking or using the kitchen. Examples of this idea in action include wiping up spills on the counter right away, putting ingredients back when you’re done with them, and washing dirty dishes while dinner is in the oven.

Never set dirty utensils on the counter.

Paper and other clutter tends to collect on kitchen counters. When it’s left out, it multiplies. Make sure this doesn’t happen by clearing off your counters and putting things where they belong every night as part of your “kitchen shut down” routine. 

Organize the cabinet beneath your sink.

Having your cleaning tools and products accessible is key to maintaining a pristine kitchen. You probably store a majority of them in the cabinet under your sink. And that’s great — you just need to make sure it’s organized, so that you can easily grab what you need, when you need it.

Wash these three tools immediately after using them.

Don’t let cheese graters, strainers, or chef’s knives sit before being cleaned. Cleaning them right away means you won’t have to deal with the arduous task of scrubbing dried-on food from these tricky items. 

Create kitchen counter zones.

If you designate counter areas for specific tasks, you prevent all the counters from getting dirty when you’re working in the kitchen. For instance, if you bake only in the corner where your stand mixer lives, you know you only have to wipe down that counter (and the area around the sink) when you’re done whipping up your muffins. 

Run the dishwasher before it’s too full.

Chances are, you need to run your dishwasher more often than you think you do. If you put it off too long, and you can’t fit anything else in it, it no longer becomes useful and then dirty dishes have to sit (or get hand-washed!). Try to get in the habit of running it every night after dinner.
