A Secret to Clean Kitchens
Why does cooking create such a mess? Seriously, whatever we do and however hard we try, when we have finished creating our masterpiece the kitchen always looks like a bomb has hit it.
Surely there must be a way around this? It wasn’t like this is the past, when the wealthy had servants to take care of their every need. So every meal they enjoyed was brought to table and they never had to give a second thought as to how it got there!
Even if you couldn’t afford the luxury of servants, you were probably so poor that your diet was very limited, thus leaving very little tidying up to do afterward.
Next time you finish a session in the kitchen have a look around you. There are dirty plates, pans, utensils and a pile of appliances which were meant to save us time, not add to it!
The nearest most of us have to servants these days is a cleaner once or twice a week, and a war zone kitchen isn’t really in her job description! So we still stress about how we can continue cooking, but without the mess.
So we still search for that magic something that will enable us to turn out lavish gastronomic creations without any of the mess. As, sadly, it simply doesn’t exist, here’s something you can try instead.
As you finish using each piece of equipment, wash it. This means that everything is getting washed quickly as you go and there is no build up which will take a lot longer to wash and put away. Adopt this method next time you are in the kitchen
So in future, no more stacking up dirty dishes and leaving them until the end. Facing a pile of dirty pots and pans can be soul destroying, so make life easy for yourself and clean as you go. Now when you’ve finished whatever you have made, you can sit down and relax, not be stuck at the kitchen sink for a good hour.
