Picking up the kitchen is never ending. We propose 3 steps to save time and make cleaning a rewarding and fast routine. Keep your kitchen in order even if a pitched battle is taking place.
Whether you are addicted to cooking or just a lover of good food, you will surely have watched a TV cooking show. Have you noticed that cooks are constantly cleaning and removing utensils that they no longer need when food is ready? When they finish cooking, the countertop is always clean. The best professionals use this technique: they are cleaning and collecting on the fly. Follow this advice and try to do the same.
Remember that with Recyclit you can dispose inorganic waste, organic waste and recyclables knowing that you are using an innovative solution made with the most reliable and durable items in the market.
Step 1: Wash the utensils
First, while you are cooking, wash the utensils you no longer need or place them directly in the dishwasher. Save the ingredients after using them. Clean the surfaces and the cutting board after putting the ingredients to cook. Put the cookbook back in its place. You’ll thank yourself when the meal is over.
After serving the meal, fill the casseroles immediately with water and add a drop of dishwasher. While you eat, let them soak in the sink; Cleaning will be much easier.
During the meal, gradually remove what is no longer going to be used. Take the entrees when you go for the second dish, and remove the dishes and the sources from the second plate when you go for the dessert. Do not go anywhere empty handed. Thus, when the meal is over there will be much less things to remove and the table and surfaces will be collected in the blink of an eye.
Step 2: Clear the countertops
Clear countertops allow efficient and quick cleaning without having to move things from side to side to pass the cloth. Follow the rule of storing all possible utensils in shelves and cabinets so that surfaces and countertops are clear. After all, we don’t use the pasta maker or strainer every day. Leave what you need on hand every day and place what you don’t use so often on the highest shelves or less accessible places. Make sure that the table is completely clear after each meal to be cleaned at a time with Concentrated Clean Don and a ball. Other things you can do:
Hold the knives and scissors on a magnetic bar pinned to the wall and store the spices on a shelf next to the stove. Kitchen utensils should be stored in a drawer under the stove and oil and water bottles in a low cabinet.
Create a box for the mail and other papers and place it on a shelf. Set a day of the week to review the content. If you need more space in the kitchen cabinets, separate the dishes, glasses and cutlery that you use less and find a different place to store them.
Step 3: Establish a weekly plan
Some tasks have to be done at each meal, but others are only necessary once a week. Set a day for each weekly task, so you reduce work and the kitchen will always be clean. Group the tasks according to the cleaning product that is needed, so you won’t have to repeat the same action twice a week.
Weekly plan proposal:
- Mondays scrub the floors.
- Tuesdays dust.
- On Wednesdays check the refrigerator and shelves and discard any expired product or food in poor condition.
- On Thursdays clean the countertops, the hob and the sink.
- On Fridays, order mail and papers.
The weekend is better to spend a good time with the family.
- Make it clear who’s in charge
Being the boss does not mean being a cacique or a tyrant with the other members of the family, but to exercise a role with legitimate authority.
- Easier with fewer things
Before starting to order it is convenient to reduce the number of elements and that normally happens yes or yes to part with what we do not use. If we have four stoves, we will never use more than four pots and four pans at the same time. The ideal is to throw everything that is not in good condition and try to overcome our natural inclination towards the porsi (“just in case”) by setting certain limits.
- Take photos of your kitchen
Observing the images of a dirty or messy room and commenting with someone we trust can be very useful for awareness. That is, before we start ordering, let’s photograph it. When we meet at the end of the change, we will do it again and observe it to be able to say that we are satisfied with the tour.
- Reverse shopping list
Alicia Iglesias is committed to turning the supermarket into our authentic pantry. But for that you have to make the “reverse shopping list” every month. That is, check the cupboard from top to bottom to be very aware of what we have and buy only what we know we will need.
- The tuppers closet
First of all, you have to throw all the tuppers that have a little orange colour. But it is also convenient to have few and that all are good, preferably square and glass, always keeping them with their lid. And those who do not find cover, the little ones for sauces and those that are “for 50” also have to get rid as soon as possible.
With Recyclit, we simplify the entire recycle procedure and save you a lot of time and effort from collecting all organic and inorganic wastes by having you posting them and letting the self-closing stainless-steel doors prevent any smells from spreading outside the recycling bin. An innovative option that helps you keep your kitchen as clean as possible and save time as well.
