Clean As You Go

This Sparked Me!

I don't like to clean up after I finish cooking, so I got into the habit of cleaning as I mess things up. That way when I finish cooking my kitchen is clean too.

    I clean as I go and reuse some item when possible. That saves time on putting things back and getting new items out. Anything that saves time makes me happy.

    DH was a cook on a submarine back in the day. He had to clean as he went and has tried to teach me for 52 years.

    I have tried, but am not very good at doing that. Maybe someday I will get the hang of it.

    I have also been doing this for many years. Excellent time saver and you can enjoy your food knowing you DON'T have a kitchen with dirty counters/dishes awaiting you after your meal!

    I also feel this way. I try to clean as I go also it leaves only a few dishes for the kids to wash as they are assigned chores and one is the kitchen which includes washing the dishes.
