“Clean as you Go” and phrases that never die

Clean as You GoMention “clean as you go” to folks who have worked in the kitchens of Marriott or McDonald’s and they’ll know what you’re talking about.

There’s nothing remarkable about “clean as you go.” It just means you’re expected to clean up after yourself immediately following every task. But if you repeat it enough, it begins to stick.

“Clean as you go.”

Short and pointed reminders, consistently enforced, are likely to stand the test of time.
