Kitchens are the heart of every home. It’s where you prepare the best meals but have the worst messes. It’s crucial to protect the heart of your home, but disinfecting your kitchen can often get challenging.

If you’re looking for ways to disinfect your kitchen, we’ve prepared a list to help you.

Soap and Water

No better way to keep your kitchen germ-free than with some good ol’ soap and water. Ensure you use hot water as it kills germs effectively. This combination is helpful since it can combat dangerous bacteria. When you disinfect your kitchen using just some water and soap, you effectively kill germs on surfaces.

Soak Kitchen Items

Sure, your kitchen surfaces can get cleaned up with soap and water but to disinfect other kitchen items, just soak them in hot, soapy water. The hot water will quickly get rid of the dirt and tough stains while ensuring the germs are eliminated completely.

Rubbing Alcohol

The EPA has certified isopropanol alcohol as a disinfectant but it’s ideal to use the 70 percent strength rather than the 90 percent as it evaporates rapidly after destroying bacteria and viruses. However, ethyl alcohol shouldn’t be used for cleaning.

Use Bleach

Bleach is one of the top sanitizing chemicals, and when used correctly, can be incredibly effective at eliminating viruses and bacteria. Ensure to dilute bleach to avoid harming your skin or respiratory tract. The safest way to use this chemical is by adding one-third cup per one gallon of cool water rather than using it with hot water.

Aerosol Sprays

Aerosol spray from companies like Lysol is another fantastic way to disinfect surfaces in your kitchen. To ensure that the product efficiently eliminates viruses and bacteria, follow the manufacturer’s directions.

When using these sprays, keep the can no closer than eight inches from the surface you’re spraying. To ensure that the area is completely saturated, press the button for three seconds then leave it wet for a few minutes before touching it.
