Keeping your kitchen clean, including worktops and chopping boards, is essential to keep food safe. Otherwise bacteria can grow and spread.
1. Clean Worktops
Always wash worktops thoroughly after they have been touched by raw food including meat, poultry, vegetables or raw eggs.
2. Clean Cloths
If you want to choose the safest option, you could use disposable kitchen towel to wipe worktops and chopping boards.
3. Clean Knives, spoons and other utensils
It’s important to keep knives, wooden spoons, spatulas clean to help stop bacteria spreading to food.
4. Clean Hands
Dry your hands thoroughly, because if they are wet they will spread bacteria more easily.
