Kitchens accumulate a huge amount of dust and grime, and Indian kitchens even more so. With the amount of oil and spices that we use in our food preparations, our kitchens need an overhaul almost everyday! Follow these 7 kitchen maintenance tips religiously, and look forward to a cleaner brighter kitchen, reduced overall work and a more happy you.

Yet, most people do it just yearly once, or maybe twice. Kitchen maintenance is essential. Although a once or twice yearly overhaul may be good for a re-design or makeover, throwing out non-essential stuff or putting in new appliances, keeping your kitchen polished and up-to-date can reduce large-scale accumulation of dirt and grime, while keeping the place clean and enjoyable the rest of the year.

Kitchen Maintenance1. BEGIN THE DAY WITH AN EMPTY SINK AND DISHWASHER 

Such a simple suggestion, yet so smart. An empty sink before you begin cooking, ensures that you start the day on a clean note. Wash and rinse messy utensils and dishes as and when you finish cooking, instead of leaving them to sit for hours (or overnight).

2. CLEAN YOUR SINK AFTER RINSING DIRTY VESSELS

Cleaning and rinsing the sink daily, removes any residues of food waste, reduces bacteria and infections and keeps it smelling good. Additionally, dishes don’t get extra-greasy from the accumulated bad water, ensuring you don’t have to put in extra effort and time during washing up.

3. CONDUCT REGULAR MONTHLY MAINTENANCE ON COOKWARE, DISHES AND KNIVES

Do you need to remove long-lasting and hardened burnt stains from your cooker, or remove rust spots from your stainless steel pans? Have your knives become blunt and rusty, and you feel the need to sharpen them again?

Every once in a month, go through all the dishware and address every issue that you see. A quick few minutes of repair may take days of maintenance work, if not caught on time.

4. CLEAN, SCOUR AND OIL CUTTING BOARDS ONCE EVERY MONTH 

Cutting boards are the most abused kitchen item, and most often neglected one in most homes. These boards are used frequently, almost every day and yet just get rinsed after use. Besides the general dirt they accumulate, they also carry germs and other pathogens within their cracks, leading to health hazards if not washed properly. Maintain these wooden cutting boards (and spoons), and you will save time and money in the long run, without having to replace them often.
