Keeping Your Kitchen Clean During the Holidays
The holidays are a time to get together with family, friends, and coworkers to celebrate and enjoy each other’s company. Unfortunately, this is also when we’re most vulnerable to getting sick from germs and bacteria. That’s why keeping your kitchen clean and sanitary throughout the holidays is essential.
Easy Tips to Keep Your Kitchen Clean and Safe
Because of everything you do in your kitchen, keeping the countertops tidy, clean, and free of bacteria is extremely important. Bacteria or germs are everywhere – including your kitchen, where food is stored, prepared, and eaten. One should take the necessary steps to clean before, during, and after cooking, dining, and entertaining to keep everyone safe.
Below are a few easy tips from Graniteland USA to ensure your kitchen stays clean and sanitized throughout the holidays and beyond.
Cleaning your countertops and all surfaces frequently is one of the most effective ways to keep your kitchen safe. Use a mild soap solution, and make sure to get into all of the nooks and crannies. Use an antibacterial cleaning spray occasionally, particularly during holidays when many people are in the kitchen.
Disinfecting your countertops with an alcohol-based solution is a great way to destroy bacteria or germs. Make sure to use a soft cloth and never spray directly onto the countertop surface to avoid damaging it.
Practice Food Safety
Food safety is essential, especially during the holidays when you tend to host many guests. Make sure to use separate cutting boards for raw meats, poultry, fish, and any other type of food that may have come into contact with them. Wash knives, utensils, and hands frequently to avoid cross-contamination.
Seal & Protect Countertops (h3)
Regularly sealing your natural stone countertops will help protect them from color fading, staining, and scratches. Sealing is a process in which a clear, protective coating is applied to countertops to extend their lifespan. Graniteland USA recommends using a sealant every 6-12 months, depending on the type of stone you have installed. This will create an invisible barrier against food, liquid stains, and bacteria growth.
Following these simple tips from Graniteland USA, can keep your kitchen stays clean and sanitized throughout the holidays and beyond.
