There are two kinds of people, the kind of people that clean up as they're cooking and the kind that waits until they're done to start cleaning. Cleaning or not cleaning, this is what Grand Junction is up to while they're in the kitchen.

I'm definitely the type of person that cleans as I cook. This is from spending countless hours cleaning up after my mom as a kid. She never cleaned as she cooked and always left a mess behind. I don't wish this on anyone, myself included.

I asked you this on our Facebook:

I was overjoyed with the responses we received. Most of Grand Junction (80%)is cleaning up as they cook and I love it.

I'm right there with you, Jolene. It's a balancing act between cooking and cleaning, but it's so worth it. Because when you're done cooking, you're basically done cleaning.

Those in Grand Junction that don't clean as they cook (20%) have their reasons for doing so.

Aaron is very strategic about the way he cooks and cleans. Aaron, I just hope your wife doesn't catch on. (Or see this.)

Some Grand Junctionites clean after they cook simply because they don't know any better. Try cleaning as you cook sometimes, you won't regret it.
