Whether it's really hot outside (and sticky indoors to clean) or you want to finish your cleaning to get out and enjoy the sunshine, here is an approximately 12-minute cleaning guide for the kitchen. The house cleaners at MOLLY MAID would be happy to help some more!

De-clutter. Spend a minute or two removing clutter from countertops including dirty dishes. Fill the dishwasher, put items back in the cabinets, stash loose papers and mail in a drawer (or the recycle bin), and clear counters.

Dishes. Now that you've loaded the dishwasher with the dirty dishes from the counter, you can start the wash cycle.

Pre-treat. If you find hard-to-remove spots on the stove or countertop, soak with soapy water, then come back to it after a few minutes.  

Counters. Wet a microfibre cloth with all-purpose spray and wipe countertops back-to-front, brushing crumbs onto the floor (since you'll mop in a few minutes).

Appliances. Swipe the fridge, dishwasher and stove with a damp cloth, then dry with a clean microfibre cloth to avoid streaks.

Floor. Starting in a far corner of the kitchen, sweep your way out. Then give the floor a fast once-over with a water-dampened microfibre mop, again working your way out.
