Cleaning the kitchen is one of those essential tasks, that must be done every day. No matter if you live alone in a house or living in an apartment with the rest of your family members, you must be sure that the kitchen is not only clean, but also free of any germ.
For the past ten years, some of the cleaning products, such as anti- bacterial ones have flooded the market. These cleaning products started providing a simple way to disinfect kitchen sinks and counter-tops. But nowadays, the same products, were improved to be overused and causing some stains of bacteria to become resistant to any further treatments. Actually the American Medical Association advices customers to limit their exposure to anti- bacterial cleaners. But it is almost impossible to avoid such products, when most of the provided soaps and cleaning products contain anti- bacterial ingredients.
Although the good thing is that you can make home-made disinfecting cleaning products, to clean your kitchen, without any anti- bacterial solutions. But if you are not able to get busy with do this on your own, and still prefer to buy cleaning products, then try to avoid them if they contain chlorine, lye, glycol ethers and ammonia.
If you want to clean and disinfect the counter-tops and sinks in your kitchens, then you must know that using hot, soapy water is the best way to clean them. Another good cleaner is that so called borax. You can dissolve some borax in water and place it into a spray bottle to easily apply it on the stains. But some counter-tops must be cleaned very carefully. For instance you can not use vinegar for granite cleaning. You can use hot, soapy water, mixed with some amount of rubbing alcohol.
It is not a good idea to wipe your counters with a sponge, you used to keep in your sink, because this automatically can infect the counter-tops with bacteria.
But after all if you do not have time for cleaning or you just hate cleaning, then you better hire cleaning services. With these you will feel more comfortable in your kitchen, which is cleaned as well. You can use regular cleaning services, for your kitchen , that will prevent future appearance of any bacteria or dirt.
