Dishes and Appliances
Putting clean dishes away is simple, as dishes all have their designated spot in the kitchen, but now is the perfect time to go through and get rid of any cracked or broken pieces. Recycle any items that are damaged and set the pieces that do not get used anymore but are still in good shape aside to donate. Next go through the small appliances such as, coffee makers, blenders, or toasters. Ensure they are all in working condition, and determine what items are actually used and needed. If it is only used to gather dust, donate it. Once the purge is complete, return all items to their proper place and admire all the extra storage space.
Cleaning will be a breeze now that all unnecessary clutter has been removed. Freshen up all of the surfaces with a quick wipe down and sweep the floor. This quick refresh should only take about 15 minutes and leave the kitchen sparkling.
After the one-hour cleanse is complete sit back, relax, and enjoy a spotless kitchen!
