It’s really important. The kitchen is one of those environments where you don’t want to bring germs and bacteria into your home. You don’t want bacteria and germy foods in your food. And, if you do bring stinky food into the kitchen, you might infect your family, or worse, spread germ. Cleaning is not a cure-all. It does help. However, too many people have too little faith in how cleaning and disinfecting products can help reduce the risk of disease and spread.
Cooking doesn’t really have to be dirty. I can cook my food the way I like to eat. Some people like that, some people don’t. A lot can change from one person to the next. For me, the biggest change is the amount of cleaning that I do in my kitchen. My kitchen is now much cleaner.
We have all heard of ‘the clean plate syndrome. That goes for both kids and adults. If you’re a kid, you can’t eat junk food or drink soda without getting a bad reaction.

The easiest way to clean your own kitchen and stay healthy is to make your food yourself.

Methods to keep a kitchen clean
Wash your hands before opening the refrigerator, the freezer, and the freezers of food. The germs on your hand can help prevent the food from spoiling in your home.
A large piece of stainless steel or copper can keep food cold if the temperature is above 40°F.
Use a fresh towel to clean your countertops and refrigerator every time you open it. Use a dry paper towel if using a dishwasher.
If the dish is clean, you can put the dirty dish in a sink to wash it or put it in an open cupboard if it’s in another room and it gets dirty more quickly.
Wash your glasses every week and change them. Make sure they are dry before you put them back on. Wipe down all kitchen surfaces, including countertops.
Making sure your hands are clean is at the top of the kitchen hygiene rules list. Don’t remove contaminated clothing for personal use such as washing hands, washing face or changing clothes.
Clean your chopping board after use.
It is important to get rid of food that can sit on the board and cause food to stick to it, such as food stuck to the knife. Wash your hands before and after using the stove. Cleaning is all about getting rid of germs in your kitchen and making sure you have a clean countertop so that you don’t have any food sitting on it. Also, wash your cutting board at least once a week. There is no harm in having it dirty when cooking, it’s just a good way to keep the food from sticking to your board. Use a towel or a damp towel to wipe the cutting boards, as this will help keep them clean and germ-free. I also recommend wiping it after a few hours of cooking to make sure there is really no food left on your food chopping surface.
