It is vital to maintain your kitchen space, including workstations and chopping boards, to keep cooking and eating safe as bacteria can develop and disperse.
Keeping worktops and chopping boards clean is very essential because they touch the meals you're supposed to eat. Bacteria could spread to food if they aren't correctly cleaned and make you sick.
This is a very efficient way to wash plastic chopping boards if you have a dishwasher. Dishwashers can clean the bacteria at very high heat. If you do not have a dishwasher, carefully clean the chopping boards with warm water and some sort of washing up liquid.
Ideally, it's better to have separate chopping boards for raw food and ready-to-eat food.
Spreading bacteria throughout the kitchen is very simple from your hands, because we touch so much stuff, from meals to fridge handles, clothes to can openers. You need to keep your hands clean to keep your kitchen clean.
Wash your hands thoroughly with soap and warm water at each of these times:
Thoroughly dry your hands because they will spread bacteria more readily if they are wet. The safest way to do this is to use disposable kitchen supplies or use a towel that you only use to dry hands-not your apron or tea towel.
