No matter how hectic your day may have been, you should always tidy up your kitchen before you go to bed for the night. When you wake up the next morning, you will be glad you did.
Some people may not be good at this because their day was stressful and that is understandable because a rough day can alter anyone’s mood when they get home. Letting a job tire you out is normal but what must be recognized here is the fact that this is your kitchen and home. There are numerous reasons to be concerned.
Most people like to wake up to a clean kitchen. It motivates them for the day somehow and makes it go more smoothly. There’s nothing more stressful than waking up to a sink full of dirty dishes, a stove splattered with grease, and a stinky garbage can. In the morning my kitchen is where I relax with a cup of coffee and the daily newspaper. That wouldn’t be possible if the kitchen wasn’t cleaned the previous night.
Another good reason this should be a daily habit is to prevent uninvited bugs and ants into your home. Everyone knows once they get in, how hard it is to get rid of them. They start in one room and then the next thing you know, they’re all over your house!
It is a good idea to clean up as you go. Depending on your other housemates will get you disappointed every time. This particular chore should still be someone’s responsibility at the end of each night. People should also know that cleaning as you go is easier because stains are harder to clean the longer they sit.
A build-up of dishes from the night before will have the person who wants to cook breakfast in a bind. They will probably have to wash the certain dishes they need in order to cook with. Secondly, they will have to wash dishes to make room for the next set of dirty dishes.
Even if a person lives alone, it does make a difference if this gets done before bedtime or the next day. Our schedules don’t always go as planned, so this task should always be completed.
Tidying up a kitchen doesn’t take much work at all. It only takes a few minutes to wipe down everything and throw garbage out. And as far as dishes go, they can either be washed or rinsed out and put into the dishwasher so at least the kitchen is marginally clean before bedtime.
