5 simple tips to keep a white kitchen clean.
I have had so many people make a variety of comments about our white kitchen and how hard it must be to keep clean.
While we were building I often heard people say that keeping a white kitchen clean takes too much work while warning us against our plans (they didn’t realize we had already renovated a house and put white cabinets and marble in it that we loved).
And I always wondered, wait, do non-white kitchens just magically never get dirty? 😉
Honestly, if something is dirty, I want to know so I can clean it up.
And my guess is you do too!
So today I thought I would share with you some super easy tips to help you keep your beautiful white kitchen clean.
1. Keep the Counters Clutter-Free
While I do decorate our kitchen for each season and holiday, I try to keep the decor somewhat minimal.
I also only keep one kitchen appliance on our counters.
Although my husband loves toast, and we eat it often, we keep the 4-slice toaster in one of the cabinets and I just pull it out as we need it.
I do however keep our juicer machine in the corner of our kitchen since we use it almost every day and sometimes twice a day.

2. Clean up Messes As they Happen
If you have marble counters this tip is especially important in order to avoid staining or etching.
But really no matter what kind of counters you have, cleaning up messes as they happen is an easy way to avoid having a huge mess to clean up at the end of a meal or at the end of the day.
3. Do the Dishes After Every Meal
I know it’s not always possible to do the dishes at the end of every meal, especially if you have busy mornings that often include rushing out the door.
If it isn’t possible to do the dishes after every meal, I highly recommend doing the dishes every evening so that you can go to bed with a clean sink and a running dishwasher.
My trick is to fill the dishwasher during the day, run it at night, and then unload it within the first hour of waking up, before starting work.
4. Wipe Down the Counters Every Evening
Even with cleaning up any big messes that may happen while cooking, sometimes there will be things unseen left behind on your counters.
So wiping down the counters every evening is an easy way to make sure nothing sticky is left behind.
I use this daily marble cleaner on our counters and I absolutely love it! (This is not sponsored, I just really like the product.)
This may sound funny, but the fragrance reminds me of a scented Polly Pockets I had as a kid. Do you remember those?
Anyways, they also have a marble sealer that you can use every 6 months (I’m hoping to try it on our master bathroom vanities soon) and also a granite, quartz, and stone cleaner (that I may try on our other bathroom counters) that has good reviews too.
5. Spot Check the Cabinets Once a Week
You could totally do this every day, but life is busy.
I totally get it!
So I recommend checking your cabinets once a week or every other week just to make sure something didn’t splatter on them or to remove any dust.
I hope these tips help you keep your beautiful white kitchen clean!
