Keeping the Kitchen Clean
By Cathy Pearl
  

1     Cleaning the kitchen is more than a part of cleaning the house. It is also important because it helps to keep you and your family healthy. Making time to clean your kitchen will help you cook easier and keep it less cluttered.
 
2     Have a place for everything in your kitchen. It is much easier to find what you are looking for and put it away if there is a place for it. Items that have their own drawer are always easy to find and easy to put away.
 
3     There are probably some places in your kitchen that manage to collect things everyday. This could be a shelf where you set the mail or where items you bring home from work pile up. Take a few minutes to clean this spot everyday. This will keep things from piling up.
 
4     Wipe down the counters everyday. Don't use a sponge for this job. A sponge is a great place for germs to grow. When you are using this to clean, you are wiping germs all over your counters as you clean them. Use paper towels and a cleaner made for the kitchen. These cleaners help to keep the germs from making people in your house sick. Be sure to throw the towels away when you are done with them.
 
5     Clean up spills as soon as they happen. This can help keep a small mess from turning into a big one. Spills can also make a sticky mess if they dry on your floor. Use paper towels or a mop to clean something like this.
