Keep Your Kitchen Spotless With A Weekly Clean

Make A Schedule

Setting up a schedule is the first step to keeping your kitchen clean all week long. I recommend picking one day a week when you can dedicate a couple of hours to a deep clean. I find Sunday afternoons work best for me. I put it on my calendar so I don’t forget or get too busy with other things.

Having a set time helps me stay on top of all the cleaning tasks I need to do. I also don’t let the chores pile up during the week and get overwhelming. I break the cleaning down into more manageable chunks.

Here are some tips for making a cleaning schedule:

  • Pick a day and time that works best for your life
  • Write it on your calendar or set a reminder
  • Have set tasks to complete each week
  • Don’t let the cleaning pile up
  • Stick to your schedule as much as possible

Deep Clean The Kitchen

My weekly deep clean tackles all the problem areas and detailed cleaning I don’t get to during my quick daily tidies. Here is what my deep clean checklist includes:

Clean Inside Appliances

  • Wipe down the microwave inside and out
  • Clean the oven and stove with appropriate cleaners
  • Empty, clean, and sanitize the fridge and freezer
  • Descale and disinfect the coffee machine

Clean Counters and Sinks

  • Use a non-toxic cleaner and scrub the kitchen counters and island
  • Clean the sink with baking soda and vinegar
  • Scour stains and shine the faucet fixtures

Sweep, Mop, and Vacuum

  • Sweep and mop tile floors
  • Vacuum carpets, rugs, and corners

Organize Pantry and Drawers

  • Take stock of pantry items and donate or toss expired goods
  • Wipe down shelves
  • Organize utensils, pots and pans, and containers

Dust Surfaces

  • Use a microfiber cloth to dust top of cabinets and appliances
  • Clean mirrors, windows, and light fixtures

Quick Daily Cleans

To maintain the deep clean, I also do lighter quick cleans each day. This takes just 10-15 minutes but keeps the kitchen looking great all week.

  • Clean counters and sinks after cooking
  • Load the diswasher as I use dishes
  • Sweep the floor, especially under eating areas
  • Take out the garbage and recycling
  • Wipe down appliances if I notice splatters or spills

Doing these small cleans daily prevents messes from building up. It also makes the weekly deep clean much faster and easier.

Make It A Habit

The key to keeping your kitchen spotless is consistency. Make your cleaning schedule a habit like brushing your teeth or making your bed.

Here are some tips:

  • Do your daily cleans at the same time each day, like before bed or after dinner
  • Stick to your deep clean day, even if you’re busy
  • Ask others in your household to pitch in
  • Listen to music or podcasts while you clean
  • Use checklists to stay on task
  • Reward yourself when you complete your cleans

Soon deep cleaning your kitchen weekly will be second nature. A clean kitchen improves your quality of life and sets a positive tone for the rest of the home.
