I am new at posting polls, so I may have to tweak this. How long does it normally take to clean your kitchen? The kids and I have a debate. They feel that it takes hours to clean the kitchen and that it is unreasonable to have this happen every day. I think it only takes that long because they will only put dishes in the dishwasher. Wiping countertops, picking up trash off the floor, picking up dishes off of the floor, all of that is 'too hard' to do. I also think that if you throw the wax paper, cans, packaging, unusable scraps into the trash when you remove it from whatever rather than putting it on the counter, in the sink or even dropping it on the floor and kicking it out of your way, you eliminate much of the problem with almost zero effort. You cannot be more than three steps from the garbage can in our kitchen, so how hard is it? Mostly you can just reach over to throw something away with-o taking any steps. I also believe that loading the dishwasher, running it, waiting another hour or two for things to finish drying, and not doing ANY other method of dish cleaning is going to make it take an entire day to clean the kitchen. Esp if you leave several inches between each dish - thank you and husband both put about 1/3 of the dishes into the racks that they can hold and actually get clean. They leave a TON of room between dishes and then it takes even longer. So how long does it take to clean a kitchen every day? Less than 30 min? 30 to 60 min? 60 to 90 min? More than 90 min? They are swearing htat to do what I ask will take at least 90 min and more like 2 hrs.
