1. Dishwasher and sink
Start by clearing up your dishwasher and your sink, it’s the messiest part of your kitchen. From time to time as you leave your dishes unwashed and just leave it on the sink they clough up the drainage hole and make the sink greasy. Washing them immediately will leave you more room for your next dishes and make things a lot easier.
