Between the raw ingredients and moist/warm environment, your kitchen is a breeding ground for bacteria. Certain things, like a sponge, cutting board, trash can, or sink drain are pretty obvious. According to a study by the National Science Foundation, none of these places are where possible foodborne pathogens resides.
Here are the 5 germiest areas in your kitchen:
1. Refrigerator crisper & Meat Drawers
To clean remove all drawers from fridge and wipe out the inside with a sponge or cloth, mild detergent and warm water.
2. Blender Gasket
Disassemble the blender jar completely (gasket, blade, lid and base) first, then place all parts in the dishwasher.
3. Can opener
Drop this tool in the dishwater or hand wash with hot soapy water after every use.
4. Rubber Spatulas
Separate the handle from the head and pop both halves in the dishwasher or hand wash and air dry.
5. Food storage containers
Hand was the seal, the area around the seal and any grooves where the cover attaches to the container.
