Even if you haven’t besotted yourself the previous night the task of cleaning the kitchen after a marvellous wine-and-dine evening takes more than a good plan.

Now, let’s take a look at some simple things you could implement in your cooking process that will make the cleaning thereafter easy.
If your food products allow it, use only one bowl or plate to store all your ingredients. We know that sometimes different kinds of meat will lose their nutritional qualities when placed next to each other, so this is not always possible. But in case you’re preparing a vegetarian course this shouldn’t be a problem. Cut the vegetables into small pieces and place everything in one big bowl. You won’t have to wash ten different plates when you’re done with the cooking.
Don’t forget to keep a bottle filled with water and bleach solution for all those filthy worktops, stoves, and ovens. Freshly-squeezed lemon juice is also a good idea to have around. It is a mild form of acid and easily removes greasy stains and spots.
When chopping or slicing your vegetables into perfect small pieces, always do it from one direction to the other. Left to right. Or a right to left. It’ll help keep the scraps on one side for throwing out and the rest ready for cooking.
Also, don’t forget to keep a damp towel or cloth next to your slicing board so that you can use it to quickly wipe off the sticky residue or spills.
Pots and pans that are made out of stainless steel can easily be cleaned up by adding one tablespoon of baking soda, a few drops of dish soap and filling a quarter of the container with water. After you’re done with that put the pot or pan on high temperature for a few minutes and let it simmer. Now, wait for a while. Take it off and carefully pour the hot liquid down the drain.
While doing so be very careful as the container will most likely burn your skin if you don’t handle it with caution.
Once it’s cooled off a bit add one more tablespoon of baking soda. Take a double-sided sponge and scrape away the remaining grease. Voila! Your pots and pans are bright and shiny and ready to be used again for your culinary adventures!
For your copper cooking containers use a tablespoon of salt, soap and fill it up to an inch with simmering water. Then repeat the same procedure.
Of course, you can just leave it all there and make use of our domestic cleaning service. We will glaze and polish not only your kitchen but the entire house! Remember it’s also just the right time for Spring Cleaning, so why not give us a call at 020 7205 2626 or book online by filling the form.
