Does it seem like your kitchen is always messy? I know mine does. I swear I can clean it to the degree that it is absolutely spotless and perfect and within an hour, it can be a complete disaster. It can get pretty overwhelming.  This is especially true during the busy season when my big kids are in sports non stop and I constantly have visitors stopping over (like during the holiday season).

If you deal with these issues too, check out these 5 tips for keeping your kitchen clean to see if they can help you keep your kitchen in order and your stress levels down. I don’t know about you, but this year has been stressful enough, I don’t need to add a constantly messy house to that list of stresses. 

5 Tips for Keeping Your Kitchen Clean

Keep a Large Bowl or Bucket on Hand

When you are cooking or prepping a meal, make it a habit to keep a large bowl or small bucket on hand to toss peelings and wrappers in while you go. Make it a point to not put these items on the counter because that can become overwhelming quickly. 

Keep a Trash Can in Your Kitchen

Maybe I’m the lone one out here, but I had no idea that there were people that didn’t keep trash cans in their kitchen. It’s important to have a place for your trash to go as soon as you accumulate it. 

Store Utensils in a Drawer

If at all possible, keep your cooking utensils stored in a drawer rather than on the countertop. Storing them on the countertop, even if in containers, clutters the area greatly. 

Keep Kitchen Appliances Put Away

Same thing goes with kitchen appliances. Create a storage spot for them, some place that is hidden from sight. This is another thing that creates a cluttered look in your kitchen. 

Wipe Counters and Stove After Each Meal

Every time you prep a meal, wipe down the countertops and your stovetop. It’s very easy for these spaces to get dirty quick and I don’t know about you, but I want my kitchen clean!
