BArich Taiwan-o help you keep up with the clean, we enlisted the support of Laurie Brown, a green cleaning expert from Earthstone International, a purveyor of household cleaning and sanding products, to give you some useful tips. Learn how to dispel germs and keep your kitchen spaces clean.
1. Change Your Cutting Board
“Use hard plastic cutting sheets instead of wood cutting boards to more easily remove germs after each use. Just wash with dish soap and rinse with water. Super easy and effective.”
2. Clean Your Sink
“Keep sinks clean! Use Magic Eraser or microfiber products to clean around the sink drain and garbage disposal as a way to more effectively remove food scum and germ-laden residue. Ninety-nine point nine percent of bacteria can be removed by agitation, and super absorbent fibers and materials do a superior job — without the chemicals."
3. Don’t Do Unnecessary ‘Cleaning’
“Do not rinse chicken or other meat before cooking. It just spreads germs, and it doesn't make it more delicious.”
4. Get Behind Your Fridge
“Regularly clean refrigerator coils and make sure to set your refrigerator between 37 degrees F (3 C) and 40 degrees F (5 degrees C) to ensure healthy food.”
