It’s been a long day. You’re exhausted and you probably had a hearty dinner. As you go straight to bed, you leave the dishes unwashed in the kitchen sink. You’re thinking you could do them first thing in the morning. There’s no problem in doing so… right?
Not exactly. You’re actually leaving more work to do in the morning.
Wouldn’t it be nice to wake up to a clean sink and a spotless kitchen? If you think it’s not worth being a part of your evening routine, here are a few reasons that should convince you otherwise.
Dirty dishes smell like a catastrophe
Leaving your dirty dishes in the sink leaves more disaster than just leftover food and a few stains.
A few dirty dishes can add up to a lot more when the smell kicks in, especially if you’ve left quite a bit of leftover food on that weren’t properly disposed of.
So clean out those plates! Also, make sure your drains aren’t clogging up lest they stink up the kitchen as well. Both of which better be in peak condition if you want your kitchen smelling fresh!
Uninvited Tiny Guests
AUnclean kitchens at night tend to attract pests that crawl everywhere and leave a mess..
Your kitchen could be under siege by rats, ants, and flies and other pests that feast on your leftovers from the sink. They move to your pantry and chew everything that’s edible. And that include the leftover fruits in your blender. Not cool, tiny pests.
A Cleaner Kitchen Leads to a Brighter Morning
Waking up to a messy bed? That’s a given. But a kitchen that’s kept messy overnight can dampen anyone’s early morning parade.
You’ll probably start regretting those hours you spend on the couch watching Netflix instead of using five or ten minutes of your time cleaning your kitchen free from food residue.
So which is it going to be? Hours of leisure on the couch first and then a pile of dishes and grime in your kitchen in the morning? Or a few minutes to clean up that mess and then the rest of your evening and morning are spent in leisure? You decide.
A few minutes of wiping down the heart of your household saves you more time than you think.
Wash the dishes, scrub the counters, clean out the sink, make sure your garbage disposal isn’t stuffed with a whole chicken, and even taking out the trash can do wonders to keeping your kitchen alive.
