Check Your Stopwatch: How To EASILY Clean Your Kitchen In 5 Minutes Or Less
I love a clean kitchen, don't you? But do I enjoy cleaning my kitchen? Not so much. There are so many other ways I would rather be spending my valuable time. But it must be done. So why not make it fast, efficient and fun? Here is an easy system for cleaning your kitchen that will have it sparkling in no time. I highly recommending putting on your favorite energizing music and crank up the speakers. Set your stopwatch and race yourself to see how quickly you can get it done.
The key to making your kitchen cleaning efforts efficient is a principle called "stacking functions." In a nutshell, this means that, rather than doing one random task at a time, you group all of the same types of task together and do them at once. This saves you time moving back and forth across the floor and pausing to decide what to do next. You will be surprised how much time this simple technique can shave off your kitchen cleaning duty.
Remember this is a race, so you want to keep moving quickly. Start the race with your dishes, grab all those dirty dishes and bring them to the sink or dishwasher. Next, gather all the garbage or recycling and put it directly in the bins. Next get all the perishable food items and return them to the refrigerator. Then gather all the dishes to be put away in the cabinets. Next step is to load your dishwasher, group each type of item and load them all at once into the appropriate location for your dishwasher. Now turn the dishwasher on if it's full. Then hand wash any large items or pots and pans that won't fit in the dishwasher. Finally, wipe down your counters and you are done!
Check your stopwatch. I bet with a little practice you will be cleaning your kitchen in 5 minutes or less.
