Keep Your Kitchen Spotless: A Weekly Routine

Keeping a tidy kitchen is important for both your health and your sanity. A spotless kitchen just feels good to be in. Here is a weekly routine to help you keep your kitchen clean and organized all week long.

Daily Kitchen Cleaning

To prevent your kitchen from getting too messy, it’s important to do a little bit of cleaning each day. Here are some daily kitchen cleaning tasks to incorporate into your routine:


  • Wipe down counters and appliances. In the morning, do a quick wipedown of all your countertops and appliances using a multi-surface cleaner or disinfecting wipes. This helps your kitchen look neat and tidy to start the day.

  • Wash dishes. Don’t allow dirty dishes to pile up. Wash dishes and utensils shortly after using them, either by hand or using the dishwasher.

  • Take out trash and recycling. Check if your trash or recycling bin is full in the morning and take it out if needed.


  • Clean surfaces. Before you go to bed, do another quick wipedown of surfaces to remove any crumbs, spills or dust that accumulated during the day.

  • Handwash delicate dishes. Wash any fine glassware or delicate dishes that need to be handwashed. Let them air dry in the dish rack overnight.

  • Sweep floors. Use a broom or vacuum to sweep up any crumbs or dirt on your kitchen floors.

Weekly Deep Cleaning

In addition to daily cleaning tasks, set aside time once a week for a more thorough deep clean of the kitchen:

Clean appliances

  • Refrigerator: Toss expired food and wipe down shelves and drawers. Don’t forget the top and exterior.

  • Oven and stove: Scrub the stove top grates and wipe down the oven interior. Use oven cleaner for tough baked-on grime.

  • Microwave: Remove built up food splatters with a microwave cleaner or use a microwave steam cleaning method.

  • Coffee machines and small appliances: Descale and thoroughly clean coffee makers, air fryers or instant pots.

Dust and disinfect surfaces

  • Use a microfiber cloth to remove dust from tops of refrigerators, cupboards and shelves. Get into corners and crevices.

  • Clean and disinfect handles and knobs on drawers, appliances and cabinets. Use a disinfecting cleaner or wipe.

  • Shine up sink and faucets. Use a stainless steel cleaner and shine up your sink. Clean soap scum and calcium deposits from faucets.

Deep clean floors

  • Sweep and mop floors. Move appliances and furniture to sweep and mop under and behind them.

  • Clean baseboards. Use a cleaning toothbrush and all-purpose cleaner to scrub kitchen baseboards and remove grease buildup.

Organize cabinets and pantry

  • Go through cabinets and take out everything. Toss expired food and put items back in an organized manner.

  • Clean shelves and drawers. Use a natural cleaner and microfiber cloth to wipe down shelves before replacing food.

  • Restock pantry. Check pantry items and make a list of what needs to be replenished.

Clean small items

  • Clean garbage cans and recycling bins. Take out garbage bags and recycling and spray down cans with a natural cleaner.

  • Machine wash rags, towels and mats. Any kitchen textiles like dish rags or mats should be machine washed to remove grease and eliminate bacteria.


By tackling daily tidying along with weekly deep cleaning tasks, your kitchen can stay sparkling clean all week long. Just take it step-by-step. A clean kitchen has so many benefits for your home and your mental outlook. With a proper routine, you’ll find it easy to maintain.
