Above all else, the first step to an organized space is to eliminate clutter. Trash everything you do not need. Check the expiration dates on food labels and see if there are any items that are already spoiled. Remove it quickly from the refrigerator to avoid contamination with other foods. Even if you check what you have in the fridge, you have an idea of what to buy next in the supermarket. Put other things that should not be in the kitchen back into the designated storage area. Installing hooks and drawers will be a great help, so you can easily access kitchen tools wherever you need them.

Sanitize the tub
There are surveys conducted and the results say that the sink is even dirtier than the toilet seat. Believe it or not, the kitchen sink is one of the unclean parts of the house. This is because the kitchen sink is often dirty with unwashed plates and dishes after eating. Over time, these things accumulate bacteria and germs that can be responsible for diseases and viruses.
Therefore, the right way to get rid of and disinfect it is to first disinfect the sink with the very basic soap and water. After rinsing with a vinegar spray, the hydrogen peroxide will make the removal of bacteria and mold more successful.

Do the dishes
Regardless of your family size, you should be able to delegate people responsible for doing the dishes. You can have either a house helper, a dishwasher, or members of the family who volunteer for the task, but make sure the bacteria does not stand around too long, as it will later become more difficult to remove the stains.
This is not only true for the dishes, but also for frying pans, spatulas, cutlery, chopping board and all other items in the kitchen. Above all, if you use them frequently, some simply forget to clean them and think that they will use them immediately afterwards. If stains are present, you can use baking soda or bleach on a damp sponge. Wipe it around the stained surfaces.

Sweep & Mop the ground
You can use bedtime as the perfect time to sweep and wipe the kitchen floor. This is when everyone else is ready to go to bed and prepare for sleep so you can be sure no one will screw it up after cleaning. It is also a must to choose a good selection of brooms and mops. One with finer bristles is great, as it allows smaller dirt particles to be absorbed faster. If you have a carpet in the kitchen, consider using the Gold Coast Carpet Cleaning service to ensure you do not miss a place.
