Beat Bacteria in the Kitchen!
Because your kitchen is one of the most used rooms in the house, this means that it can get filled up with bacteria pretty quickly. Thousands of germs build up every single day so it’s extremely important you clean and organise your kitchen correctly!
Below we have put together some top tips on how to stay on top of the cleaning and keep your hygiene standards in tip top condition!
Because your kitchen floor is subject to many germs throughout the day, from shoes, socks and feet, it’s best to clean it every couple of days or at least once a week to make sure it’s fully clean. If you have wooden flooring, use warm water and soap, don’t use too much water as it can cause the wood to swell.
If it’s stone flooring, ensure that you are re sealing it frequently. If it is already sealed, use a hoover to collect any bits from the floor and then use lukewarm water to mop it up.
This is where you prepare your food, and due to this, bacteria can thrive and grow; especially if you have any cracks among the worktops.
- Stone – apply a sealant to absorb any liquid spills, it’s best to use clear water with a neutral PH level as you don’t want the stone to fade.
- Laminate – use bicarbonate soda and a bit of chlorine bleach, this needs to be done at least once a week, while also wiping your surfaces every day.
- Solid wood – this needs to be regularly oiled and wipe up any spillages quickly with warm soapy solution.
- Stainless steel – use a microfiber cloth and a blot of baby oil as you don’t want to use anything too abrasive.
These are the most important steps to take to make sure your kitchen is fully clean.
