Your kitchen is the heart of your home, but it is also the place that gets messy and dirty quite easily. While many people think a good weekend scrub is the key to keeping the kitchen clean, the best way to go about it is to give a few minutes of your time every day to maintaining a clean kitchen.
Here are a few tips to help you keep your kitchen clean:
1. Use a garbage bowl when you cook
A Garbage bowl is a container that you place on the counter to dump handfuls of peelings or scraps while you cook. This makes it easy to keep your kitchen clean as you go about cooking, saves you countless trips to the garbage or compost bin, and most importantly, keeps your kitchen mess-free and organised.
2. Use a cutting mat
Chopping vegetables and tossing them into the pan is not always as elegant as we see it on cookery shows, right? The easy fix to that is using a cutting mat over the cutting board – you can easily pick up the mat with cut vegetables, bend it to a funnel and pour the contents into the pan.
3. Corral all that you require and prepare your work-space
Place the spoons and utensils you will need to cook and will be re-using, on the counter. Deciding in advance what you will be needing, and what you can re-use while cooking, is a great way of keeping the mess to the minimum and also to make sure you don't go looking around for things you need, in the middle of cooking.
4. Clean as you cook
A lot of people think this is quite a hassle, but cleaning whatever you are done with, makes sure there is less of a mess to be tackled later on. Just drop the used knives and spoons in a bowl of hot soapy water. You can use a splatter-screen on the stove makes cleaning off the grease and oil residue so much easier. It is also a good idea to clean your kitchen appliances like Microwave Oven right after you finish cooking. For easy cleaning with great results, try the IFB Microwave Care Pack.
5. Choose a good Dishwasher
Dishwashers are a great addition to a kitchen, as they can ensure easy work of the pile of dishes that can seem so intimidating. A good dishwasher can help make you look forward to cooking, without worrying about dealing with dirty dishes after every meal. IFB Dishwashers also come with Eco Wash feature which makes you save on electricity and water, and also ensures perfect hygiene with every wash. Buy one now!
6. Don't rush through cooking
Hurry spoils curry, and definitely creates a lot of mess too! Avoid speed-cooking and see how everything you do get automatically more neat and organised. There are times when you really do need to fix a quick meal – for those times, it could help to have set options of dishes that are easy and can be dealt with easily, or use splatter-screens.

7. Use Appliances that are easy to clean
Keeping a kitchen clean requires diligence but a clean kitchen makes cooking a great experience every time. Apart from following cleaning routines, it also makes sense to invest in appliances that make cleaning your kitchen easy.
