We are all using our kitchens a lot more than normal right now, which leads to more cleaning. Apartment Guide has created a list of the main tips to help keep your space clean and sanitary during this time.
- Unload your groceries in your sink and keep EVERYTHING besides food off your counter. This means keys, cellphone, mail and bags.
- Wear disposable gloves when handling raw meats. Cross-contamination can happen and wearing gloves will reduce the likelihood while saving you time and water by not washing your hands as often.
- Keep your space clean and uncluttered. Get into the habit of cleaning as you cook rather than saving it all for the end. Wipe down surfaces with antibacterial spray after every meal. Deep clean your kitchen at least once a month.
- Go through your cabinets and clear out anything that is expired or you do not use. Make space for the items that you use regularly and have them easily accessible. This may mean there are less items in your pantry and fridge, but it will be items that you use.
Keeping your kitchen clean and uncluttered can help keep you safe and make cooking for enjoyable.
