The kitchen is probably the messiest area in every house. No matter how hard you try, there’s always a dirty area on the countertop, a coffee ring on the glass table or a pile of dirty dishes in the sink. Well, de-cluttering your kitchen once and for all requires much effort on your end. Also, if you are the only one who cares about neatness, while other members of the family hardly pay attention to the clutter, you have a serious problem. You could always solve it by arranging professional cleaning services, but after all, you can’t expect cleaners to do miracles in 1-2 hours. That is why you can help them a little by going quickly through the most problematic zones around the kitchen. If required, set a timer, pull your sleeves up and get ready for the 20-minute kitchen de-cluttering challenge.
Get rid of the things you don’t need – when was the last time you read your cookbooks? If you read recipes on the web, you can donate your cookbooks or put them in boxes and keep them in the attic.
Inspect the baking ware, coffee mugs, cooking utensils – throw out the broken items and keep those you use often close to you. Select a free spot on the highest shelf for those you use once in a blue moon.
Spices – make an inspection of the spices you’ve got and get rid of those that have lost their flavour or expired. Arrange the remaining ones in a suitable container.
Kitchen gadgets – can you count the number of gadgets you bought with no intention of using? And what about the toaster that has been collecting dust for years or the coffee machine you bought just because it was on sale? If your kitchen is overflowing with gadgets you use every other year, you need to find them an appropriate place and leave the machines you use frequently.
De-clutter the junk drawer – every household has its junk drawer where car keys, old batteries, candles, pens and even medicines are kept. The best thing you could do is to get a trash bag and throw all miscellaneous items you keep for no reason at all.
Wipe down surfaces – keep a multi-purpose cleaner at hand and take care of the dirty spots and spills immediately. You could just treat the spot and leave the thorough disinfection to the agency you hired for professional cleaning services.
Check out the food in your fridge – you could be surprised at the number of bottles that have long been expired. Why do you still keep the pizza leftovers from the last weekend? What are you going to do with the bottle of milk that has been sitting on the fridge door for a month? Get rid of them and wipe down any spots on the fridge exterior/ interior.
Of course, you can’t complete these projects in 20 minutes, but you may set aside twenty minutes per day for coping with the imminent chores in your kitchen. Soon you’ll get used to that habit and things will be a lot easier.
