Want your kitchen to be goals?
Kitchens are the heart of everyone’s home. They’re also (more than likely) the most used space in your house. Try these five simple tips and ideas I use every day to keep my kitchen totally clean and spotless!
1. Clean fingerprints from appliances.
Between spills on the gas cooktop, going in and out of the refrigerator, and marks left on the microwave, fingerprints accumulate pretty quickly! And since those appliances are a main focal point of the kitchen, I always make sure ours are shiny, clean, and free of fingerprints.
2. Put odds and ends where they belong.
My kitchen becomes everyone’s dumping ground for all things homework, mail, you name it! Throughout the day, I take a few minutes to put things where they belong so the counters are clean and clutter-free before it gets out of control!
I even decluttered my counters by using these to organize my junk drawer and was also able to throw out my old, bulky knife block!
3. Clean up all the dishes after each meal.
I’ve never met someone who complains about a clean sink. After each meal, no matter how big or small, everything gets washed or put into the dishwasher so my undermount sink looks sleek and clean.
4. Clean up crumbs.
Whether spilling food on the floor during meal prep or finding toast crumbs on my favorite countertop, if I see any crumbs, I grab a broom (or if on my counters, a cloth to spritz with my new favorite cleaners at Target).

5. Push in your bar stools.
Ever hear the phrase “push in your chair!”? This is one of the easiest ways to help your kitchen look cleaner, and it involves no cleaning at all! A straight and tidy lineup of beautiful bar stools really does pull a kitchen together. 😍
