1. Not washing your hands
Once done with your grocery, you must wash your hands. This is to maintain your hard work to have a clean kitchen setting and disinfecting your foods. The smartest thing to do is remove your mask and wash your hands.
2. Not cleaning the kitchen’s surfaces
It is necessary to brush or scrub all the areas of your kitchen. This also reduces the risk of germs and prevents foodborne diseases that might occur if your kitchen is not properly maintained. To sanitize your kitchen, wipe it off with a disinfectant wipe or spray before emptying your food on the counter.
3. Using soap to wash your crops
Washing your food with soap is not healthy because it makes food taste weird. If you want to wash your crops properly, simply rinse them with cool water. Also, wash your peeler to avoid any possible contamination.
4. Not cleaning your fridge constantly
You may be in the kitchen recently, so you know what’s inside your fridge and how often you clean it. If not, then you better check what you have in your fridge constantly, preferably every weekend. Clean all the areas of your fridge while throwing the food that has gone bad. If you don’t, your food will then blend in with any rotten food and might be infected.
5. Not storing your groceries in the fridge properly
Your leftovers and pre-cooked food should be on the top shelf, the daily goods are on the middle shelves, while any raw meat is on the bottom shelves. The fridge drawer should contain your fresh fruits and vegetables and all your condiments and drinks are on the door.
6. Not washing your reusable bag
If you use a reusable bag when going to the store, make sure to wash it. It will also reduce the spread of bacteria and food contamination.
7. You wipe everything you buy
The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) stated that there is no indication of COVID-19 spreading through processed goods, so you don’t need to wipe all of your goods. But you can still do it if it makes you feel better.
