Daily: Routine Cleaning
Get in the habit of regularly cleaning easy-to-see areas. Taking a few moments to tackle highly visible, splatter-prone spots can make all the difference, plus it helps prevent grease and grime buildup on:
- Tile backsplashes
Tip: Speed up the process by clearing countertops of pots and pans and small appliances. Not enough cabinet space? Use a hanging pot rack or mobile kitchen cart.
Weekly: All in the Details
At least once a week, turn your attention to small but mighty messes, like greasy fingerprints and appliances such as:
- Coffee maker
- Kitchen sink
Tip: As part of your weekly regimen, launder dishtowels and linen napkins. If you find you have more than you need, repurpose them.
Monthly: Complete Kitchen Clean
Every 4-6 weeks, conquer the often-forgotten areas. Look high and low for grease splatters, drips and scuff marks you may have missed during your daily and weekly cleaning. Zone in on:
- Under the kitchen sink
- Doors and frames
