A Clean Manor provides fresh and simple ideas for a clean and organized home.

Need a few ideas on how to save time later in the kitchen and actually have a few minutes to just sit down and relax before hitting the hay? Here are few things you can do in the kitchen to keep up with things:

1. Do as many dishes as you can while dinner is cooking. Take a few seconds and wash any pots, pans or spoons that are not being used before dinner even starts and put them awayy. This creates less work after dinner.

2. Same thing goes for wiping down the counters. I always try and give them a good wipe before sitting down to eat.

3. Do all of the dishes after each meal so that they don't pile up. This one might seem simplistic, but it makes a huge difference. Growing up we didn't have a dishwasher! Well, except for my brother and I. I figure that if I didn't go to bed with a pile of dishes in the sink when there was NO dishwasher, I can certainly do the same WITH a dishwasher.. Yes folks, my mom still does not have a dishwasher!

4. Make it a family effort. We have our 16 month old helping already! If your kids are older you can make it contest and try to beat your best "time" for cleaning up the kitchen.

3. Wipe off the table and the counters as you are picking up dishes. I LOVE CLOROX wipes!!
