Episode 134: How to Clean As You Go While Cooking with Taryn Williford

Filed Under:

Share This:

One of the hardest parts of cooking is the cleaning that ensues, so it’s no surprise that we’re regularly asked about how to best clean as you go. In this episode, we chat with cleaning expert Taryn Williford about how to set yourself up to cook without creating a huge mess — or at least without creating a mess that makes you feel overwhelmed and like you’d rather never cook again.

What Does Clean Look Like for You?

One of the most important take-aways from our conversation with cleaning expert Taryn Williford is to start with an understanding of what clean looks like in your house. What matters most to you and your family: Clean floors? Having all the dishes put away? Clean countertops? Prioritize those things and get comfortable with sitting with other small messes.

But even with that sage advice, we know you want to get down to brass tacks: But, ladies, tell us how to clean as we cook!! No worries, we get to that too!
