Organizing doesn't have to be boring! A big area of clutter for most homes is the kitchen sink, counters, and stovetop. If you don't have a dishwasher and a large household this can be an especially difficult place to keep picked up and put away. This area can be a place of peace ready for your next meal or a nightmare.
Set time aside to tend to your dishes after every meal. Wipe cutting boards off with a wet towel if you want to re-use during the day. Put pans with sticky ingredients to soak in soapy water. Have a small plate or utensil holder available for pieces that you'll use later on.
While a bowl or two in your sink or on the counter isn't a tragedy, it can turn into a hurricane of a mess and overwhelming at the end of the day when all you'd like to do is rest.
Institute a rule for everyone in the household on how dishes are to be taken care of. Should everyone be responsible for their own dishes? One day a week a different person does the washing up? If you live alone, does it feel better to set one time a day to take care of it?
Whatever you decide - the rule is do not let dirty dishes sit out overnight
Dirty dishes attract critters, can make a beloved pet sick, and they smell!
Imagine walking into a clean, fresh, and open kitchen every morning and starting your day off right.
Make kitchen dish cleaning fun by putting on a playlist!
Many of us don't feel we have the leisure time to sit and listen to music so take this opportunity to sing along, move to the beat, and whistle while you work!
Play your favorites or explore new tracks you wouldn't normally discover.
Try this cleaning song list and see if it brings a spring to your step - this is definitely good multi-tasking!
