Q: Hi Apartment Therapy- love the site! Thank you for all your incredibly useful articles (and fun home tours, too). I'm writing about a problem that plagues many office workers- the communal kitchen. Ours is a mess: filthy fridge, overflowing dishrack, and a strange medley of unloved Tupperware lurking in the cabinets. Do you or your readers have tips for a communal kitchen cleanse? And once it's whipped into shape, how to keep it that way? Many thanks! -Sent by Sophie
Editor: Great question, Sophie! Readers, what has worked- or really NOT worked- in your work kitchens? Do you recommend a cleaning schedule, a chore wheel, daily cleaning vs. deep cleaning, hiring a cleaning service, or just good old-fashioned passive aggressive notes? Please help all of us eating lunch in grimy, florescent-lit break rooms!
