Kitchen Hygiene Hand washing and Other Ways to Beat Germs
DISCLAIMER! Before you start creating all kinds of mouth watering goodies, there are a few things you must do. These points are important! They will assure that the food you prepare won’t make you, or anyone else, sick.
Hands Your hands can spread bacteria and get into the food you are prepping. 80% of infectious diseases (like the flu) are spread through touch. 95% of people say they wash their hands after using the toilet. However when 8,000 people were monitored across five large cities in the US, they found the actual number to be more like 67%. Ewww!!
When should I wash my hands? Before preparing food Before eating a meal or a snack After using the washroom After touching pets After sneezing, coughing or blowing your nose After handling money After touching raw meat, poultry or fish

Clean Up What other clean up should be completed after washing the dishes? Sweeping the floor Sanitizing the countertops Sanitizing the table Drying the sink Emptying the sink stopper of any food Putting away the recipes
Personal Cleanliness Keep the kitchen clean! Avoid touching your face or hair while working in the kitchen – If you do, wash your hands! Use separate towels for drying your hands and for wiping the dishes. If you have an open cut or sore on your hands, use plastic gloves for handling food. Tie your hair back or cover it so it will stay out of the food.
Personal Cleanliness Be sure your clothes are clean. Avoid loose items. Roll up long sleeves. Wear an apron! If a dish towel or utensil falls on the floor, do not use it again until it has been washed. Always use a separate spoon for tasting—NEVER the same one you are using for stirring. No cell phones in the kitchens!
