The Ultimate Guide To A Clean Kitchen
The revolving door around here has to be the Kitchen! I spend most of my time there, especially in the winter. And now Nick is building me a new one.
No, I don’t mean he’s remodeling the one we have (sad face). He’s building me a canning kitchen in the basement! Yay!!
When we bought our home, it already had a canning stove in the basement and a canning closet. But they hadn’t seen any attention in a LONG time.
My parents replaced their counters and sink, so they offered them to us. And so started a new project!

I am ecstatic to have this space and can’t wait for the finished product. But this now means, I have two kitchens to keep clean! Thinking about that gave me a bit of a panicky feeling in my gut.
One kitchen can be enough to drive someone crazy! Sometimes I feel like within minutes of getting it sparkling, it looks like the end of a rush in a restaurant kitchen!
So I decided I needed a plan! A “keep it clean plan!”
I sat down and compiled the Ultimate Kitchen Cleaning Checklist! I asked readers, family and even the daycare kids for their thoughts on how to keep up with cleaning the kitchen(s).
The end product was a daily, weekly, and monthly to-do list just for the kitchen. I follow my daily list, and add one to two items from each weekly and monthly lists to my daily to-dos.
Now I have absolutely no excuse to let these tasks slide!
I have laminated my checklist (bonus! I love my laminator) and it hangs on the fridge. Everyday I complete all of the daily tasks and one or two of the weekly and monthly tasks.
I’ve also left a few spaces blank in case I think of something I missed, in the future.
