Did you know, the dirtiest place in your home is actually your kitchen? Think about it, most of the food we prepare and consume happens in our kitchens – and where there is food, bacteria are sure to follow. From stomach unsettling bacteria to everyday cooking grime – the dirt is everywhere.
Follow these tips for making your kitchen squeaky clean:
- Disinfect Your Sink! It’s your go to place for washing dishes and hands – but it’s also the dirtiest spot in the house. The sink is an easy breeding ground for E. coli and salmonella. Stop that bacteria in its tracks and disinfect it with a dishwashing soap, lemon, and baking soda combo until it shines.
- …And the Drain – Just because you’re washing food and soap down the drain doesn’t mean it disappears. Often times food will stick inside and thanks to the constant moisture – germs are thriving. Pour a mixture of baking soda, salt, and water down the drain. Then flush it with hot water for 30 seconds. Bonus – you’ll also be eliminating any clogs.
- Soak Your Faucet – Take the filter screen at the tip of your faucet and soak it in a diluted bleach solution every week to kill off bacteria. Just remember to let the water run through it for a bit after its finished soaking.
