The dirtiest places in your kitchen

Your imagination can run wild thinking of the bacteria lurking in your home. But people tend to look in the wrong direction when it comes to fighting germs in the kitchen. Disinfect these germ sanctuaries as soon as possible. Your refrigerator harbours bacteria in some surprising places. Ice and water dispensers, vegetable crispers, meat drawers, and door seals are some of the germiest! Countertop appliances need more intensive cleaning than you might think. In fact, not doing things like flushing your coffee maker and disinfecting your blender gasket can put you at risk of ingesting unsafe bacteria. Sinks require daily care to fight bacteria. Disinfecting them regularly will reduce the risk of contaminating foods and dishware, and will make your sink less appealing to pests. Food storage containers and reusable grocery bags aren’t just storing dry goods or tomorrow’s lunch — they’re also holding germs. This is especially true if there is a rubber seal involved, as these tested positive for yeast and mould. Finally Utensils like rubber spatulas and can openers rank in the top 10 for bacteria content — and studies have found harmful strains like E. coli and Salmonella on them!….Ed
