Bacteria and Sponges Your kitchen sponge probably has more bacteria than anything else in the house. It's worse than the toilet. Bacteria t…hrive in moist environments. Let your sponge dry out between uses. Don't leave the sponge sitting in the bottom of the sink. Squeeze it and let it dry. Replace it every week or two. It's also recommended that you wet a sponge and then microwave it for two minutes every two days. The high heat kills bacteria on it. You can also put it in the dishwasher but that's not quite as good. Dishrags are another have for germs. Let them dry between uses and wash them frequently. Even better: use paper towels or disposable wipes. (MORE)

Basically the rules of food hygiene are common sense rules to stopcontamination of food while preparing or serving it. Remember,cooking food kills most germs. If you aren't going to cook ityourself before eating it then you have to store it carefully andmake sure the way you prepare it is clean. Make sure it has fewchances of encountering raw food, especially raw protein like meatwhich bacteria thrive on. If food is not going to be cooked before you serve it - like cookedmeats, cheese, cakes etc then you should store them on the topshelves of your fridge so no contaminants can drop onto them. Youshouldn't cut these food stuffs with any knife that has been usedon raw meat (unless it's been washed properly - rinsing under thetap won't do unless your tap spews boiling water). Ideally youshould use different knives and chopping boards for raw meat andeverything else. Finally, ALWAYS wash your hands after putting something in thebin/trash. It's easy to forget, I know. Especially when trimmingand peeling vegetables. My kitchen bin is host to microbes thatfeed on chicken skin, old cat food, veggie peelings, leftovers andeverything. It's a hot bed of microbe reproduction activity. I betyours is pretty similar! If my hands go to the bin I make sure mynext stop is a good hand washing. You don't need to waste money onantibacterial soap, normal soap does the job just as well. And it'sbetter that the germs get washed down the sink than transferred toyour lovely green salad! The four golden rules are .
Always tie back your hair and wash your hands .
Never cross contamination use coloured chopping boards! .
Always cook meat completely. .
And last but definitely not least, Always clean up everythingproperly after use. Use hot soapy water. And those are the GOLDEN rules of the kitchen!!!! (MORE)

Hygiene and Good Habits are commonly understood as prevention methods against infection. In broader call scientific terms, hygiene is the maintenance of health and healthy liv…ing. Hygiene ranges from personal hygiene in domestic realm to occupational hygiene and public health. Hygiene involves healthy diet, cleanliness, and mental health. One of the most effective ways to protect ourselves, from illness is good personal hygiene. This means not only washing your hands but also your body. Hygiene also means being careful not to cough or sneeze on others, cleaning things that you touch when you are ill, putting items such as tissues (that may have germs) into a bin, and using protective aids (like gloves or condoms) when you are at the risk of catching an infection. Personal hygiene includes health practices such as bathing, washing your hair, brushing your teeth, and cleaning your clothes. Maintaining good personal hygiene helps to fight infection by removing essences that allow bacteria to grow from the surface of your skin. (MORE)
There is an old saying, "Cleanliness is next to Godliness". Meaning that it is just as important to keep yourself and your environs clean as it is to be a Godly person. Cle…anliness in the kitchen helps prevent the spread of disease. Salmonella, listeria, and other food borne illnesses start in the kitchen. If you've ever had a case of "food poisoning", you know first hand one of the main reason to keep the kitchen clean. Food comes from outside! Vegetables are grown in dirt! It only makes sense to wash your fruits and vegetables to get the dirt off. Eating dirt, real live soil, is not an attractive option for most people. With the chemicals sprayed on food today, washing everything is imperative for eating. Chicken carries salmonella. Surfaces where chicken has rested needs to be disinfected, or that nice clean salad you just made could be contaminated. Food poisoning on a plate is what you serve to your family when you are not clean in the kitchen. And of course, no one wants to eat off dirty plates with dirty forks and spoons. The sink with hot soapy water is your friend. I like to have a sink full of water when I am preparing food just to make sure that my family doesn't get accidental contamination. Washing the counter after each preparation will contain the bacteria, and the counters won't have to be washed again after I'm done cooking. Besides...it's easier to clean as you go. That way, you won't have a huge mess to clean when you're done. (MORE)
