Keep it simple and organized
Lynell Ross, the Resource Director for Test Prep Insight says, “Go through your kitchen to make sure you have pots, pans, utensils, measuring cups, bowls, dishes, serving platters, small appliances and keep only what you need and like. Then give the rest away. When you have extra room in your drawers and cupboards it makes it easier to put things where they belong and keep it clean.”
Clean as you cook
The cleanliness and maintenance are hands in hand as far as concerned to a Kitchen. Clean your kitchen before and after cooking.
MartynSlack, of Equip Your Kitchen, gives the best ideas to clean as you cook: This is more for whilst your cooking. It is incredibly easy to cook and just leave the pots till the end. Let us face it, who wants to be cleaning after they have just had a nice meal? I sure don’t! Cleaning whilst you are cooking is going to not only make it more enjoyable but will help to maintain a nice-looking kitchen.
Keep the worktops clear
MartynSlack, of Equip Your Kitchen, shares simple and practical ideas to maintain your kitchen. It is so easy to fill the kitchen worktops with things such as recipe books, herbs and spices, and even things such as fruit or cleaning products. This does make it appear very messy and unappealing to be in. Find a place for everything, so that you can keep it clean or organize it better for example having a nice spice rack or a holder for your favorite recipe book.
Clean Your Sink
It is very important to clean your sink. You have to make sure that no waste and food remaining’s in the kitchen. You can spend time cleaning and ensure every corner of the sink is cleaned.
Keep a well stocked kitchen
Lynell Ross, the Resource Director for Test Prep Insight speaks about a well stocked kitchen. She believes the kitchen is the heart of the home, and maintaining a clean, well stocked kitchen makes eating nutritious foods easier and creates a happier environment.
She adds,” To make meal preparation easier, maintain a well stocked kitchen. When you shop, look for healthy fruits, vegetables, and lean meats, fish, and poultry that you can store in the freezer. Keep your pantry clean, well organized, and full of canned beans, sauces, vinegar, healthy oils, whole grain cereals and other grains, baking items, crackers, and healthy snack items, soups, herbs, and spices, and anything you need to make meals.
When you open items that you keep in the refrigerator, mark the date with a sharpie marker and throw the food out when it has expired.
Keep a master list of foods that you need to replenish your freezer, pantry
and refrigerator to make shopping easier, and to make sure you don’t run
out of the things you need.”
Everything should have a home
MartynSlack, of Equip Your Kitchen, says, “In this day and age there are tools and gadgets for everything, they should all have their own dedicated place to be put away. This makes it so much more easier when you are looking for what you need.”
Give your kitchen a refresh
MartynSlack, of Equip Your Kitchen, says, “Every so often it is important to have a bit of a refresh in the kitchen. Whether that is simply a repaint on the walls, or changing the doors to your units. A refresh can really help to give it that new look and feel.”
