Clean counters well

  • Print

(HealthDay News) -- Any kitchen can be a breeding ground for germs, so it's important to give yours a thorough cleaning every day.

The Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics offers this advice:

  • Using hot, soapy water, thoroughly clean the counter and other work surfaces each day to clean spills and food particles.
  • Keep non-food items such as mail, lunch bags and purses away from the kitchen counter.
  • Thoroughly wash the counter before preparing food.
  • Make sure all dishes and cookware are thoroughly cleaned in hot, soapy water and rinsed well.
  • Frequently swap dish towels and rags for clean ones. Wash these items in the hot cycle of your washing machine and thoroughly dry them.
  • Wash sponges in a water/bleach solution or throw them away.
  • Regularly clean appliances, including the inside of the microwave.
