Spring is a great time to deep clean the kitchen (and the rest of the house!), but it’s also a great time to kick-start some fresh habits. From cleaning counters to keeping shelves dust free, I’ve rounded up three of my best tips for keeping your kitchen clean.
1) A Little Each Day Goes a Long Way….
Rather than doing a big infrequent and begrudging clean, why not do a little each day to help keep the kitchen clean and clutter free. A kitchen schedule of daily, weekly, and monthly (even yearly) cleaning and maintenance is really helpful, and once you get in the habit, your clean kitchen and fully functioning appliances will be your pleasure rather than another dreaded task on your To-Do list.

2) Know Your Appliances’ Needs
Just like a healthy marriage, knowing what your appliances need to stay in tip-top shape helps make sure your kitchen is working properly. A clean dishwasher is a well-functioning dishwasher, helping you keep up with kids and life. A clean coffee maker helps ensure you don’t come down to the kitchen after your shower to discover grinds and water all over the counter (speaking from experience!).

3) Invest in the Best
When it comes to a clean kitchen, the best ones are those that function best for your individual lifestyle. If it’s time to re-invest in your kitchen you can look at new and improved appliance finishes that magically seem to repel fingerprints (it’s not a dream, I promise), or an oven with the most advanced self-cleaning technology.
