Kitchen sinks, kitchen sponges, kitchen rags/dishcloths and cutting boards are among the germiest items in a home, even more so than what you find in your bathroom. This makes the kitchen the top on the list for germiest place in your home, where common bacteria such as E.Coli and salmonella can be readily found.


Change kitchen sponges at least once a week to prevent build-up of germs, boil kitchen rags/dishcloths (with baking soda to remove odours) to kill germs and replace once worn, disinfect cutting boards regularly and store in a cool and dry place, and disinfect kitchen countertops and the kitchen sink with disinfectants after use. Disinfect refrigerator handles regularly, especially after handling raw food and try to use paper kitchen towels instead of cloth ones which are a hotbed for germs.
