Suggestions to make them sanitary

(HealthDay News) -- A clean kitchen is a healthy kitchen, so make sure your countertops, cutting boards and other surfaces are clean and bacteria-free.

The Foodsafety.gov website recommends:

  • Promptly clean up any spills or messes with a clean paper towel or dish towel.
  • Frequently wash dish towels in the washing machine on the hot cycle.
  • Use hot, soapy water to thoroughly clean cutting boards, countertops and food prep utensils after each use.
  • To sanitize your countertops, use a solution of 1 gallon of water and 1 tablespoon of liquid chlorine bleach without fragrance.
