Adjust the cleaning process to your own schedule
If your household is made up of two persons you can start cleaning the kitchen whenever you have some spare time. If you have a lot of kids, the dishes will certainly be a problem, but you can also put them to work too if you need a little help in the kitchen. If you don`t have 20 minutes to do all of the tasks, just split them into 10 minutes, or add the cleaning task as part of your mourning routine.
Dishes and surfaces
You will need to take care of everything in your kitchen. This means that you will have to clean the dishes and also the surfaces in your kitchen.
Setting a timer
You will easily get distracted and this is why you should set a timer.
What to clean
You will need to follow a simple schedule in order for your kitchen to look as clean as you like. Here are the things you need to do so your kitchen will be clean and will stay that way:
- Wipe down all of the appliances you use
- Make sure that your trash can is always clean
- The refrigerator also needs to stay clean

When you have time, you can do more things in one day. If you have a small kitchen it will be easier to clean it. This doesn`t apply when you have a larger one. It will take you a bigger amount of time to clean the kitchen if it is larger so you should keep this in mind when you decide to clean it and how much time you will assign to the cleaning process.
