Food Safety Tips at Home

To run the risk of food poisoning at home and to ensure your cleanness in the kitchen, here are a number of tips to handle the safety of food in our daily life. It goes beyond saying that most of us maintain food safety while carrying out food handling activities; hence sometimes one needs to update the information concerning the safety when handling the food and pay attention to things of even a tiny importance.

What are the proper steps to avoid the risk of illness-causing bakteria?

The surprising fact is that the spread of illnesses like flu and cold could be avoided, and the percentage reduced with the simple step of hand washing. The maintaining of food safety requires first of all hand washing. Alongside with the low percentage of flu or cold risks, hand washing will help you to reduce the risk of food poisoning at home.

 Is  the hand washing crucial in health and safety food handling?

To achieve your health benefits you will need to keep these food safety activities in mind: 
        Always wash our hands from both sides (inside and out), inside the fingers and under the nails (if you have got long nails, it’s important to clean under the nail lines with a brush).
        Dry hands with a clean cloth towel, air dry or disposable paper towels.
        Never forget to wash hands when dealing with meat and after switching to cutting vegetables (raw food, especially meat contains living bacterias which are dangerous and will cause food poisoning).
        Make sure you wash your hands with warm and a soap before to start treating food, as well as wash the hands in between switching activities and after when you are finished with the kooking (especially raw meat, seafood etc.).
Another important food handling safety tip is to keep  the kitchen equipment and the surfaces clean.
        Make sure you wash your dishcloths with the cycle of the washing machine at least once a week. It’s a perfect way of keeping your health and food safety activities working.
        Try to keep the towels ad the dishcloths dry and clean as the damp is a perfect condition for bacterias to grow. The evidence that the kitchen is boosting in bacterias is smelly dishcloths, towels and sponges.
        Another way to maintain food safety is to keep your kitchen surfaces klean; for example, cutting boards should be washed with soap and hot water.
        Disinfect the sponges with a chlorine bleach solution, as well as change the worn sponges often.

To maintain food and health safety at home, these tips are not limited with only handling hand wash and cleanness in the kitchen; hence the upcoming articles will be touching upon other safety food handling.
