Keeping the kitchen clean is an ongoing chore. Here's how I clean it when it's a little dirty.


Kitchen has to be cleaned, one side


Kitchen has to be cleaned, other side


Utensils for sweeping floor. First dry to remove dust (at right), then wet (at left), then to dry and make look really clean (in the middle)


Stove and hot water kettle aren't clean. Hot water is very good for cleaning here!


Cleaning the water kettle with metal 'sponge'


Now clean!


Cleaning the faucet and sink with lemon peel


Clean kitchen, one side


Clean kitchen, other side

(the part about the dirty dishes you can see in another thread )

Hi Nicole. Do I have to add more photos? F.e. close-ups of countertop and sink when clean? Or do I have to clean a table too? There isn't a table in the kitchen (it's too small), but I can show pictures of the table in the living room if that's needed for a BB.

I'm sorry! I didn't even see this thread until now--thanks for mentioning my name. Life's been crazy busy. You can always click the report button on a post, too, if you haven't seen if certified in a few days. I hadn't even spotted Ash's post above yours.

Anyway! The requirements seem to say a table must be cleaned. I think you can pick any table and that should count!

I understand, Nicole. It's a busy 'job', controlling all those PEP-stuff!

To add to the post about the kitchen I post 'cleaning the table' here. So I won't have to edit that post.


I use the old-fashioned table-cloth to keep my table clean. I use the table as a dining-table as well as for my drawing and painting hobbies. So there are both breadcrumbs and paint on the table-cloth.


I think the wood of the table can use some oiling


Do you see the difference? I used the same walnut oil I showed in the thread about oiling wooden utensils.


Clean tablecloth, clean place-mat (the others are in the laundry basket), tidied a little. To show the walnut oil is edible I used it in this salad too (of which a photo isn't any proof ... )

I hope now I can be certified for the kitchen cleaning BB.

Staff note (Ash Jackson) :

I certify this BB is complete! (Post 3/3)

So I cleaned my kitchen today.  Here's the before....



Attached is the required picture of the floor.

And here is the aftermath.
