Speed-Clean Your Pantry

Take your pantry from filthy to flawless in just 15 minutes.

  • Minutes 1 to 3: Move the trash can near the pantry. Empty shelves onto the counter, tossing out anything expired or suspicious (old cracker boxes, ancient bags of flour, outdated canned goods). Most dried herbs and ground spices should be replaced every six months (jot down those you throw away so you’ll remember to replace them); goods like honey and brown sugar can last forever.
  • Minute 4: If you’re overloaded with canned goods, make a bag for a local food bank (see for locations). Separate the “keeper” contents into two categories: everyday items and occasionally used items.
  • Minute 5: Fill a bowl with warm water and a squirt of dish soap. Dip a sponge cloth in the solution, wring it out, and wipe down sticky jars and dusty cans. Let dry.
