Kitchen Hygiene

Maintaining kitchen hygiene is more vital than ever.

Here are some tips for a sparkling clean kitchen, straight from the chefs at ITC Hotels.

  • Disinfect the sink daily by scrubbing it with used lemon skin/vinegar.
  • Wipe down your oven/gas range using a cloth and warm water after every use.
  • Avoid a large collection of food waste trimmings in your kitchen area.
  • Kitchen sponges & scrubs are a haven for bacteria. Wash them well with a soap solution at the end of the day and leave to air dry overnight.
  • Sanitize the kitchen cloth every day by soaking it in boiling water mixed with a soap solution. This will get rid of grease and microorganisms.
  • Avoid wiping washed utensils and try air-drying as much as possible.
  • Though time-consuming, rigorous weekly cleaning of the fridge is essential. Pull out fridge shelves and compartments to wash with warm water and soap. Wipe the interior of the fridge with a mixture of water and vinegar. Repeat the same with the exterior, particularly the handle
