Kitchens are naturally one of the messiest places in the house. The reason is simple; everyone uses it in their own way. From cooking entire meals for everyone, to kids coming over to make themselves a snack or two, soon enough, there is some clutter in the kitchen sink, crumbs and bits thrown on the floor, and pots and pans over the counters.
Re modelling kitchens in Dublin has become quite easy now because you can go to any showroom to select the design of your choice to be installed in your house. But after that, it’s your responsibility to keep your kitchen in a great condition.
Here are some ways you can keep the heart of the house looking clean and beautiful:
- Always empty out your dishwasher and sink before doing anything
Before you start preparing any meal of the day, its best that you empty out the sink by washing the dishes. If there are any washed dishes, plates, or cutlery in the dishwasher, then empty it out as well. You want to start working on a clean slate, as it will ensure less clutter for you.
- Clean while you cook
Always clean along as you do your work in the kitchen. If you leave everything in the sink until the last minute, you will have a big pile of things to clean. That pile will look overwhelming and will deter you from doing any cooking the next time. Cleaning while you cook is a great idea, because generally there’s a lot of time that you spend waiting during cooking. What better way to utilize it than ensuring that you won’t have to clean anything once you’re done cooking?
- Kitchens should be hygienic
Many people have hygiene issues in their kitchens. Dublin is not immune to pest infestation, so you should always make it a habit to clean your counter tops. Leaving crumbs, food bits, juices etc is how you get ants. Always close your sugar, honey, and cookie jars tightly, or else you will have to call a pest control service. Make sure to mop the kitchen floor everyday so that the floor is free from any tiny crumbs. Kitchens don’t require too much cleaning; just the right cleaning at the right time.
- Maintenance and clean up
Every month or so do some sort of maintenance work in your kitchen. Clean out the stoves, rusty pots and pans, fridge etc so that there isn’t any build up. Ensure that all your kitchen waste is sorted in the trashcan in bags that are big enough so that the waste doesn’t overflow.
The best way to ensure that your kitchen always looks great is to keep all cleaning materials in the kitchen. Whenever there is a spill, clean it up as quickly as possible, before it ends up staining your countertops or kitchen tiles.
