Tip: Clean As You Go

"Clean as you go" is the first tip my mom taught me.  If cleaning the kitchen were an Olympic sport, my mom would take home the gold!  She has the kitchen completely spotless before we sit down to eat.  She is amazing!

Here are the tips my mom taught me to follow when I cook:

1. Before you start cooking, fill the sink with warm soapy water.  As you dirty dishes, wash them immediately.

2. Keep a dish cloth handy, so you can wipe up spills as you make them.

3. Put away ingredients after you are finished using them.

Following these simple steps will make cooking even more enjoyable! 


  1. i think my husband would love it if i did this...but i cook and he cleans and he says i make a grand mess of the kitchen LOL

  2. It sounds to me like you two have a great deal going in the kitchen. Cooking is so much more fun than cleaning!

  3. Great advice. Your mom had it right. I seldom manage to have the kitchen clean before I sit down to eat but it is nice to get at least some of the clean up out of the way before a meal. That cuts down on a lot of potential disappointment!
