Coronavirus is officially a pandemic and a national emergency. It’s time to worry about the germs you bring into your home. Unfortunately, the virus can still cling to surfaces you carry with you into your sanctuary, like your clothes, shoes, car and even your phone. Make sure you focus on cleaning all the doorknobs, countertops and other high traffic areas during your deep clean but here is how!
It’s hard to function in a kitchen when your physical space is a mess. Make sure wash any lingering dishes; empty the sink, dishwasher, and dish rack; clear the counters, then wipe them down with kitchen cleaner; scrub the stove if splattered. To keep the germs at a minimum, use a disinfectant wipe to quickly sanitize those areas. Once or twice a day should do the trick to remove germs, but you may want to wipe down surfaces frequently. After you wipe the area, let it air dry to give it time to kill any bacteria that could linger.
Being an obsessive hand-washer is okay. Wash with soap and water before cooking, and throughout prep and cooking, whenever your hands are oily or floured or have anything on them. You should wash your hands.
Your shoes step on a lot nasty things during the day and if you don’t take them off when you come into the house, you could be tracking in viruses and other germs. To clean your kitchen floors in your kitchen use 1 cup of bleach mixed with 5 gallons of water to mop your floors. Be sure not to stain your floors! Use a disinfecting wet mop cloth on your hardwood floors or combine half a cup of white vinegar and 1 gallon of water.
Most people dump everything in the sink to do later but don’t leave a pile of dirtiness that lurks over you as you try to concentrate on a recipe. Instead, trash or compost as you work. Pull your kitchen trash can next to your cooking space, if you have enough counter space, have a large bowl near you can put trimmings and other to-be-discarded items in.
When you pour the substance directly on surfaces like your sink, countertops you’ll need to let it soak for around 10-15 minutes. This will give it time to absorb everything. After you let it sit, scrub the area and then rinse with water.
You don’t want any raw meat to touch anything. Dedicate a cutting board to vegetables and one for meat. Wear disposable gloves when prepping meat or seafood and discard them after use.
