Will the cleaner do the washing up?
Yes, your cleaner (cleaner) can include washing up as part of their schedule of work. This cleaning task will be accounted for as part of the time you assign to your overall cleaning plan.
Washing up involves washing the items in warm soapy water, thoroughly rinsing, draining & drying the items before putting them away in the staff kitchen cupboards.
The time it takes to complete the washing up task each time will vary depending on how many items of washing up have been created. If your business has had a boardroom meeting with lunch, for example, additional time will need to be allocated to wash up the extra dishes from this type of event.
For normal day to day usage of staff kitchen items, the time it takes to complete the washing up task may stay relativity consistent.
Here are some suggestions you can implement in your staff kitchen to make washing up more efficient
- Encourage your staff to properly scrape any excess food into the bin from plates/bowls used to reduce washing time
- Have a large bowl of warm soapy water on the counter and encourage your staff to pop any dishes/cutlery in the bowl, this helps food from sticking reducing the time-consuming scrubbing needed to remove dried-on food.
- Each member of staff to have a “coffee” mug they use, rinse & reuse throughout the day. This creates one item per person rather than multiple items
