Remember these five easily forgotten spots the next time you wipe down and clean your kitchen.
Every handle in the kitchen — think dishwasher, refrigerator, light switch — is a hotbed for germs, considering the number of times they fall within the clutches of humans. Wipe down handles with a disposable disinfectant cleaning cloth at least once a week.
Kitchen sink and sprayer
The moist environment of the kitchen sink, including the sink sprayer, makes it a breeding ground for bacteria. Wipe the sink and sprayer down regularly with a disinfectant wipe. Give the drain a more thorough cleaning weekly by flushing it with hydrogen peroxide or a disinfecting cleaning solvent.
