Hello Homeowners, I would say this is a continuation of my post “10 Must Haves in the Kitchen” but with a twist. Ok? If you missed the post, click here. Today, let’s look at how to keep that kitchen clean and healthy. It’s not enough to have a beautiful kitchen that breeds of the ‘unspoken’ we should ensure our home and family is safe!
How much air circulation does your kitchen get? Dirty air or odors generated in the kitchen during the cooking process need to be taken out and replaced with clean air to avoid the growth of mold and mildew. For those of you who do not have adequate air layout in your kitchen, you can use the exhaust fan to help suck up air and pull the oil in the space. However, do not forget to clean the exhaust fan regularly to keep it functioning optimally.
Ensure sufficient sunlight in the kitchen, with sufficient natural light, the seeds of bacteria and nuisance animals such as cockroaches, rats, and so on can be avoided.
To maintain the cleanliness of the kitchen, make sure you always clean up the kitchen from impurities such as oil splashes or spills after cooking! If you leave it, this dirt can stick in your kitchen and cause the unpleasant aroma or bacteria that are harmful to health.
*Warning* Do not leave the dishes over night, i’m sure you do not want to turn your kitchen to a den of those tiny irritating cockroaches and ants that will not wait for a second to embarrass you before your guests eewwww! In addition, the kitchen waste should be disposed of each day so as to avoid the potential for growth of bacteria and fungi.
Did I make sense? If yes, then do a check and be sure your kitchen is a healthy one? If not, let’s go back to the above tips! I’m sure you will fall in love with your kitchen all over again!
