Paperless Kitchen in 5 steps 实现无纸化厨房


五个步骤,轻松实现厨房无纸化!Follow these 5 steps to become paper less in your kitchen!


1. Set a timeline to become paperless - 首先为“无纸厨房”的目标定下一个时间表

Once you decide that you will change a new part of your life, you have to set a time line. Even for smaller things :)

For example, if you still have paper in your kitchen, you can say that when those are done, this is it. No more papers! This is your timeline. Use that time to start planning and finding alternatives.

Start by using cloth napkins for dinner only, and use the paper napkins other times of the day when we needed a napkin.

One tip could also be: Try putting the roll of paper towel in a less convenient place so you're not used to grab a paper towel for every little thing.

当你决定要在人生中做一些改变的时候,定下一个时间表不失为一个好办法。哪怕是一些很小的事情:)比如说,如果你的厨房里还有纸,你可以想好——嗯,就这些了,等这些用完了就不再有纸头了!这就是你的时间表。在这段时间里你可以开始为日后做准备,找到适合你的纸张代替品。一开始可以尝试晚餐时用布餐巾,其他时间则用纸巾作为过渡。

一个小贴士:试着把那一大卷厨房用纸放到不太方便拿到的地方,这样你就没法顺手就撕一张;旧习惯被打破,新的(更好的)习惯才能建立!

2. Stock up! - 囤货!

You want to make sure you have enough cloths that you aren’t doing laundry everyday. Just throw the cloths in with the rest of the towels you're washing anyway.

你得确保自己有足够的布料餐巾可以替换而不至于每天都要洗。把用过的布餐巾和准备要洗的其他毛巾什么的放一起就好了。

Having 20+ cloth napkins on hand should be ok. You can use the ones you have already, or make some from old fabric, or find ones that pick up here and there. Doesn't matter if they don't match :)

手头上有20条以上的布餐巾应该足够了。你可以用之前买的,或是用旧布做一些,还有这里那里发现可以当作餐巾的都可以拿来用。如果款式有点五花八门其实也没有关系的 :)

You also want to have cloths for all the things you would normally use paper towels for: dish drying, hand drying, food drying, and wiping spills.

平时所有会用到纸巾的地方,你都需要一些布替代。比如说擦碗、干手、擦干食物还有清洁餐桌、灶台什么的。

3. Have all your cloths in a convenient place - 把所有的布都放在随手可拿的地方。

It's about having a system in place:

For example: cloth napkins could be in a basket near the dining table.

这关乎在家里建立一整套整理和取置的系统。譬如说,布餐巾可以放在靠近餐桌的小篮子里。

Or,

Use two cookie jars and put them by the sink, within arm’s reach. In one are the cloths designated for drying food, and in the other are the cloths designated for wiping up spills. Having these in a convenient place is key. You don’t want this process to be less convenient than using paper products.

或,放在靠近水槽的两个铁盒子(或其它容器)里,伸手就可以拿到。在一个盒子里的布可以用来擦干蔬果,另一个盒子里的可以用来抹干食物残渣、溅洒的汤汁。关键是一定要放在一个方便拿的地方。要让你的新系统比取餐巾纸还方便!

The two other types of cloths we have are for hand drying and dish drying. Those are kept on separate sides in a drawer by the sink. One hand drying cloth is kept on the dishwasher handle, used for drying clean hands, and is replaced each day. The dish-drying towels are kept in the drawer until needed.

还有两种布我们可以用来擦手和擦餐具。根据自家厨房的设计,把这些布餐巾分类放置:擦手巾可以挂在抽屉橱柜的把手上或是另添的挂钩上,擦餐具的可以放在抽屉里,随时拿出来可以用。 (还要推荐无纸化厨房的另一好物:沥水架!刚洗好的餐具如果不是急着用或是马上需要放进碗橱里,可以先放在沥水架上沥一会儿再用布擦干,免得布餐巾一会儿就湿哒哒的。)


4. Have a laundry bin nearby - 把脏衣篮放在附近

The next part of this process if having a place to put the used cloths. Just like throwing away paper products in the trash was easy, this needs to be easy, too. Keep a metal bin in the pantry?

Use the the space under your sink or on the edge of your counter?

接下来一步就是找个地方存放那些用过的布。就像是扔纸袋、纸巾一样简单,放用过布的一定也要这样随手“一放”。在厨房里放个藤条篮子或是小桶?利用水槽下的空间或是料理台的边边角角?

It just needs to be close so that it’s easy to throw the used cloths in there. The key to success is have a convenient system in place! Clean the kitchen cloths about two times per week, and just throw them in with the other towels I’m already washing.

总之它需要在你方便够到的地方随时待命,这样才能做到“随手一扔”。关键你自己要有一个整理收纳的系统。厨房餐巾大约需要每周洗涤两次,或就把它们和正在洗的其他毛巾一起洗。

5. Get your flatmates, husband, wife, kids, grandparents, and other cohabitants on board! - 让你的室友、伴侣、孩子、祖父母辈和其他亲亲眷眷们一起来加入这个行列!

Whether it’s your spouse, your kids, your roommate, or all of the above, going paperless in your kitchen will be a much smoother process if you have everyone on the same page.

Some people might be a bit sceptic, but in the end, if there's a system in place to keep the convenience level the same as with paper products that's when it transition is going smooth.

无论是你的另一半,你的孩子,室友或其他和你共同拥有一个家的人,让他们也明白和理解。这对无纸化厨房的改变会起到很有效的作用。

有些人可能会有点怀疑,但最终如果在厨房里用布餐巾和用之前用纸巾一样自成一个方便的系统的话,那转变的过程就会相当轻松。

Once you have a system in place, you’ll wonder why you ever thought it was necessary to waste so much paper on a daily basis. Make the transition to a paperless kitchen and you’ll save money and not lose any convenience.

一旦你有了自己的整理收纳系统,你就会发现,其实每天都要消耗那么多纸巾

真的是没有必要的。过渡到无纸化厨房,不仅可以帮你省下不少的钱,而且还挺方便的,何乐而不为呢?
