Clean Mama’s Kitchen Speed Clean
GATHER YOUR TOOLS Keep your favorite kitchen cleaning tools and cleaners in a caddy under the kitchen sink so you can grab them and clean anytime. My must-have kitchen caddy tools? Kitchen sink scrub, scrub brush, all-purpose cleaner, disinfecting cleaner, stainless steel cleaner, microfiber cloths, bar mop towels, sponge, and dish soap.
SET A TIMER Setting a timer is a great way to motivate to clean quickly. Eliminate any distractions, set a timer for 15 minutes and see how much you can get done.
QUICK DECLUTTER Start by collecting anything on the counters and kitchen table. Don’t take the time to put these things away right now, but put them out of the kitchen for right now.
UNLOAD / LOAD THE DISHWASHER Did you know that it only takes 3-4 minutes to unload a dishwasher and put the dishes away? Don’t procrastinate on this one – just put the dishes away! If you have dishes on the counter or sink, load them in the empty dishwasher
CLEAN THE SINK Give your sink a little scrub and get it ready for the next day – you’ll be amazed how this simple task can propel your kitchen cleanliness.
WIPE SURFACES Spray down any hard surfaces (counters, kitchen table) and wipe clean with a cloth. Wiping down counters and cleaning sinks is on my daily routine so this is fairly simple.
QUICK VACUUM & FLOOR TOUCH-UP If your floors need to be vacuumed, concentrate on high traffic areas, corners, and visible dirt. If you need to do a quick mop, I like using a damp microfiber mop to do a quick floor washing.
PUT OUT FRESH TOWELS Don’t underestimate the clean look of fresh towels. Replace your kitchen towels with clean towels as you’re making one final sweep.
