A clean kitchen doesn’t only mean washing dishes. It also means having a clutter-free zone where everything is in its place and you don’t feel overwhelmed by stuff around you - collecting dust and dirt all day long. Follow these tips for a cleaner kitchen today:

#1 – Cancel the Clutter

Start by keeping your kitchen clutter-free. Nobody likes preparing a great dinner when you have to avoid things like car keys, handbags and even kid's school projects. A good solution is to have a small basket for each family member that their items can be stored. This container can easily be used to carry those items back to where they belong

#2 – Keep Your Surfaces Clean

Once you have removed all that clutter, you can start cleaning your kitchen surfaces. Using a clean damp cloth and some Sunlight Dishwashing Liquid, give the counters a wipe. Not only will this disinfect your work area in preparation for cooking but will give you a clean, hygienic slate from which to create your favourite family meals.

We recommend keeping a clean damp cloth close by while you are cooking. You can use this cloth to clean up any spills, splashes or messes while you’re preparing and cooking so that they don’t become dried on and even harder to clean later

#4 – Pack The Dishwasher As You Go

This is one of our favourite dishwasher hacks to keep your kitchen clean as you cook. Put the dishes in the dishwasher as you go – you might be doing a few extra steps but it will make the kitchen clean up afterwards much less. Make sure your dishwasher is empty before you start cooking and simply place all your smaller dishes straight in after use.

#5 – Fill The Sink To Soak Larger Items

Another great Sunlight dishwashing liquid kitchen hackies to fill the sink with warm water and add a drop of Dishwashing Liquid before you start cooking.
