A safe home is a happy home, and prevention of germs and sickness is an important part of that. Of course, everyone gets sick once in a while, but here are some tips so it doesn’t happen more than it has to.
How to Prevent Germs in the Kitchen
One of the best ways to prevent germs is by avoiding food contamination. After all, anything that we consider a food can be a germ’s food too.
- Wash and dry your hands before food preparation and after working with any raw food.
- Always keep raw and cooked food separate. A good tip for this is to store cooked food above raw food, so that potentially contaminated raw food cannot drip onto safe cooked food below.
- Disinfect any chopping boards or equipment thoroughly before and after preparing food.
- To be extra sure, use different chopping boards and knives for raw meat, cooked meat, vegetables, and dairy. Color-code them for easy selection. Done right, this can be quite attractive too!
- Cleaning surfaces regularly will prevent a build up of food particles on which bacteria could grow. Using a cream cleaner like Cif helps to prevent the spread of germs.
- Make sure that food is always cooked thoroughly. This is especially important for poultry, pork, rolled joints, and minced meat. (While steak and whole pieces of beef or lamb can be cooked rare, these cannot).
How to Kill Germs in the Bathroom
It’s no surprise to anyone that germs can easily accumulate in the bathroom. Here’s how you can prevent it.
- The sink is where you wash your hands, so it’s naturally a high priority. Cif Cream cleaner will remove grime that would otherwise provide a place for germs to hide, as well as kill resident germs.
