Prepare the cleaning materials (2 Minutes)
Gather all the supplies needed in cleaning the kitchen. Make sure that you have already organized them in one place so that it’s easier to get them by the time you wanted to start cleaning. If all things are organized in one area, this would require less minutes to do. Also, do place your cleaning materials near the kitchen sink or any place near the cleaning area to save time from getting additional materials when cleaning. Basic cleaning materials include: all-purpose cleaning spray, dish soap, microfiber cloth, scrub brush for dishes, drying rack, dish towel, and dry cloth sweeper.
Sort out the dishes (1 Minute)
Fill the sink with warm water dropped with liquid soap. Make sure that the clean dishes have been separated already from the dishes that needs to be cleaned and washed.
Remove leftovers (5 Minutes)
Scrape all leftovers into the garbage bin then place all plates and food containers into the sink to soak. Pots and pans should be filled with water and soap as well and soaked on the countertop.
