We've compiled Daily,Weekly, Monthly and Quarterly list to help you keep your Kitchen Clean and Organised.

Here is Our Monthly list

Monthly Cleaning List

  • Give the oven a good clean inside. If you clean it regularly it doesn’t become a problem.
  • Clean all the seals and the parts in your fridge. The door compartments, shelves, take out the fruit and vegetable draw and wash it out with soapy warm water.  If you have an ice maker or trays take it out and wash that clean too.
  • Clean your dishwasher. There are commercial products and natural remedies use them.
  • Get rid of the junk piles! Sort through the "stuff" and put it away or throw it out. Papers at the end of the bench, stuff that gets put in the drawer or the window sill or on the table. Wherever these problem areas happen try not to do it for the next month.
  • Check the dates in your pantry, sort it all out if it needs doing. Keeping it tidy and organised will make it so much easier.  If it’s a problem area find solutions for it so it stops taking up your time. Could containers help, extra shelves or maybe just keep less food.
  • Check dates and foods in the freezer. Does it need to be thrown out, cook with it tonight or reminder its there.  Reorganise the freezer.
  • Clean your everday appliances well.  Shake out and clean the toaster, clean the grill, clean the sandwich press etc.

  • Wipe over all the sauce bottles, jam lids, salt and pepper shakers etc every time you put them back.Make it a habit.
