Ways to Keep an Office Kitchen Clean

A clean office kitchen is very important for business and employee morale. The cleanliness of your work environment should be taken very seriously, especially where you prepare your food for lunch. Unfortunately, with all the hard working going on in an office not everyone takes the necessary time to clean up after themselves in the kitchen. On the bright side, there are ways to combat this problem. Here are some ways to keep an office kitchen squeaky clean.

A clean office kitchen promotes cleanliness at work


Many foods get left in the fridge over time. Accidents and spills are prone to happening in a fridge as well. There should be rules set for the fridge to keep expired foods from staying in the fridge for a long time. Try to instill a weekly rule for the fridge that requires everyone to take their belongings out of the fridge by the end of the week or it will be thrown away.

Break Room

Dirty kitchen counters and tables can be an eyesore. Crumbs and spills can take over a table if they’re not taken care of. Take out the trash daily and load and unload the dishwasher by the end of the day if your office has one. It is also helpful to spray air freshener sparingly to keep a refreshing smell.


The microwave may be the most important and most used kitchen appliance in an office. Sometimes just using a paper towel doesn’t thoroughly clean a microwave. A common trick to clean the microwave is to get a bowl of warm water and place a small piece of lemon in the water. Put the bowl of water and lemon in the microwave and heat it up for about five minutes. Next, Let the bowl sit in the microwave for a minute. This will allow you to easily wipe off the residue in the microwave with a wet cloth of sponge.
