Updated: Jul 9, 2023

The kitchen is often the busiest room in the house, which means that it's also the dirtiest. There's no time to waste in this space, so here are some ways to clean your kitchen quickly and efficiently:


  • Make a cleaning schedule

  • Clean your kitchen before you cook

  • Clean as you go

  • Use natural cleaners in place of harsh chemicals

  • Use the right tools for the job

  • Get rid of all food scraps and trash immediately after cooking.

First cleaning of the day.

  • Before you start your day, do a quick clean up of the kitchen. This will not only prevent chaos during meal preparation, but it also sets a positive tone for the rest of the day.

  • Make sure you have everything you need to clean in one place so that when it comes time to begin cleaning, there are no interruptions or distractions.

  • Start at the sink and work your way around countertops and appliances until every surface has been cleaned! Some areas like windows, walls and floors may be higher up on your list on another day but for now just focus on what's within reach (or cleaning).

You start with the table and kitchen counters, then move on to the fridge and dishwasher.

One of the most important things you can do when cleaning your kitchen is to keep it organized. Organizing your kitchen will help you know what needs to be cleaned at all times, which will save you time when trying to clean up in a rush or before guests arrive at your home.

Cleaning appliances.

  • Clean the inside of your fridge. Cleaning the interior of your freezer can be a chore, but it’s necessary. Get into the habit of cleaning the inside of your fridge every week or so by wiping down shelves with a damp cloth and using a sponge to remove any spills or stains that may have built up during use. A lemon-infused vinegar solution will help keep odors at bay, so feel free to add that as well!

  • Clean the inside of your dishwasher. Make sure you clean out any stuck on food particles from whatever container was used last time you ran the dishwasher – this will prevent mildew from forming later on when it gets wet again during future cycles! You can also use vinegar in place of bleach for an environmentally friendly cleaner (and if you don't mind me asking - does anyone else's nose run when they smell bleach?).

Cleaning your oven can be a pain, but it's important to keep up with. If you don't clean your oven on a regular basis, it will start to smell like burnt food and could even cause serious health problems if not cleaned regularly.

To begin cleaning your oven:

  • Get rid of any racks or baking trays that are inside the oven and use a damp cloth or sponge to wipe down the bottom of the interior walls. Once that's done, use mild detergent with hot water to clean inside of your oven (be sure to follow package directions for how much detergent is needed).

  • Use a soft bristle brush for stubborn areas. Don't scrub too hard! You don't want to damage any parts of your oven; instead focus on getting rid of caked-on food rather than scrubbing at baked-on spots until they come off completely. The goal is just to loosen them up so they'll wipe away more easily.

Cleaning the sink.

  • Clean the sink first thing in the morning.

  • Use a sponge and dish soap to clean your sink.

  • Make sure you use hot water for this task, as cold water may result in hard-to-remove stains.

  • Rinse well with clean water afterward, then dry with a towel or two if you like everything sparkling clean!

Keep your kitchen organised and clean to make cooking easier.
