The fastest way to clean up a messy Kitchen

I have used this technique for a while now, almost daily because we know what happens when you have a family and you have a kitchen, very quickly, no matter how hard you try chaos is created in a blink of an eye. Here is my quick and easy list to get through the kitchen clutter in no time.

Pick up everything that needs to go in the recycling
Pick up everything that needs to go in the garbage
Get a box/wash basket and get everything that doesn’t belong in the kitchen (mail is usually a big culprit, as well as toys)
Put everything back in the pantry that needs to go in there
Put all the dishes in the sink/near sink.
Put other big items like coffee pot, toaster, can opener etc back in position

Now you can breath……

Then go back and clean the counters, stove and tackle the dishes.

Helpful hint…..keep your counters as clear as possible, meaning if possible find a spot in the pantry/cabinets for the small appliances not in use; IE toaster, blender, mixer, all those things give the sense of clutter which results in everything else getting dumped on the counters as well. It is easier to keep counters clean when they are clear of things.

Good luck and let us know if you have any other suggestions on how we can keep our kitchens clean.
