Let’s face it, you can’t make great food in a dirty kitchen and taking care of and/or replacing the tools you use to keep clean up clean can help keep germs and bacteria at bay. Here are three tips to help you get it done!
1. Wash kitchen towels frequently to prevent bacteria build-up.
2. Replace or sanitize sponges frequently, especially after cleaning up after potentially hazardous foods like raw seafood, meat and poultry. Bacteria can multiply on the sponge and can be transferred to other surfaces like countertops and appliances during use.
3. Sanitize sponges by wetting them and microwaving them for two minutes. Be careful! They will be hot. Use tongs to safely remove them from the microwave.
