HOW TO CLEAN A KITCHEN FAST
Right now, many of us are focused on making sure we’re cleaning safely and correctly to help protect the family while keeping the house feeling clean and fresh.
Disinfecting has been at the top of my list over the past few months. As I have learned more about disinfecting around my house, I learned that it doesn’t have to be done every single day for every single surface in my house.
That made it seem like a much easier task to tackle, especially in the kitchen where my family spends so much of our time.
There are some times and areas where you should disinfect. These include:
- High touch areas like doorknobs, fridge handles, remote controls, and countertops should be disinfected daily
- Disinfect after having visitors
- Disinfect everything that a person touches if they have been sick
QUICK KITCHEN CLEANING TIPS
If your kitchen has gotten a bit out of control, try these easy tips to get it cleaned up quickly! If you follow this order you’ll be more focused and I find that always saves time!
Start by clearing off all of the surfaces in the kitchen. Throw away any trash. Move dishes to the sink. Put dish towels and oven mitts where they belong. If you have a lot of items that don’t even belong in the kitchen, grab a basket or a bag and put them in. Set it out of the kitchen so you can put those items away.
Be sure to clear pots and pans off of the stovetop as well so you can clean it.
Fill up the sink with hot, soapy water. Put the dishes in to soak while you get down to deeper cleaning. You’ll come back to them.
DISINFECT & CLEAN
Bleach is one of the easiest ways to disinfect around the home.
I have been using CLORALEN® Disinfectant Bleach around our house. It’s strong enough to disinfect around the house but is also delicate enough to use with clothing.
It’s important to remember to follow the instructions on the label. Never mix cleaning products, especially bleach with ammonia, and don’t use bleach on porous surfaces.
I use CLORALEN Disinfectant Bleach to disinfect the kitchen counters following the instructions on the bottle.
First, preclean the surface and rinse. Then mix 1 tablespoon of the CLORALEN Disinfectant Bleach with 1 gallon of water. Apply the sanitizing solution and let it stand for at least 2 minutes. Let dry. I also use the solution to wipe down the handles on the refrigerator, oven, and microwave.
Then I use Art of Green® wipes and sprays to clean the stovetop. We have an electric stovetop so it’s easy to clean with Art of Green wipes. I love the scents of the wipes. They make it more refreshing to clean by leaving the room smelling good too.
Art of Green wipes and sprays don’t have harsh chemicals and they are safe for sensitive skin. We use them a lot because of the kids and our four dogs.
The products work on a variety of surfaces and you can get them in Lavender Eucalyptus or Citrus and White Flowers scents. Both scents are fresh and uplifting.
Armed with CLORALEN Disinfectant Bleach and Art of Green wipes and sprays, it’s easy to get a clean kitchen fast!
TACKLE THE DISHES
Once you’ve wiped down all of the surfaces, it’s time to finish up the dishes. If you have a dishwasher, simply pull the dishes out of the sink of water, rinse them and put them in the dishwasher.
If you hand wash your dishes, it will take a little bit more work but it’s worth it to leave your kitchen clean and ready for the next day.
HIT THE FLOORS
I don’t always sweep the floors when I clean the kitchen, but if we’ve been doing a lot of baking or cooking, it’s definitely one way to make the room feel even cleaner.
I’ve discovered that my Art of Green spray with a cleaning cloth is a quick and easy way to take care of any spots or stains on the floor. Then I sweep it to leave it ready for the next day!
If you stay focused and follow this order, you can get the kitchen clean fast.
- Declutter surfaces
- Soak dishes
- Clean & Disinfect (counters, handles, stovetop, etc)
- Put dishes in dishwasher
- Clean floors
Now that you know how to clean a kitchen fast, I highly recommend CLORALEN and Art of Green products. I look for products that are made with sustainable ingredients and recyclable packaging. It’s a small way my family contributes to caring for our world.
CLORALEN is the #2 branded bleach in America and is more affordable at $2.79 for 96 ounces. It packs the same cleaning power of mainstream brands.
Art of Green is a perfect middle-ground for us. It’s priced just above leading cleaning products but is more affordable than green products. The wipes retail for $2.99 while the sprays are available for $2.79.
(If you haven’t tried CLORALEN Disinfectant Bleach in the bathroom, I highly recommend it too!)
Cleaning products that fit into my budget while offering me options that are better for the environment work well for me. Add in the cleaning power that comes with both CLORALEN Disinfectant Bleach and Art of Green wipes and sprays for a great way to keep your home clean! You don’t have to spend a lot on cleaning products for quality performance!
Don’t let your kitchen feel like a burden. Grab your favorite cleaning supplies and tackle it in a few simple steps before you head to bed for the night. You’ll be happier in the morning!
