When the kitchen smells bad, it is usually because there is an excess of bacteria causing bad smells.
That is why just cleaning the kitchen is not enough because you do not completely eliminate the bacteria. To eliminate bad smells, it is necessary to disinfect areas where food remains and humidity can accumulate, which promote the growth of bacteria.
There follow the main areas to work on when disinfecting to get rid of bad smells in the kitchen.
What are the 4 main areas to disinfect in the kitchen?
- Sink: this is an area that you must clean and disinfect daily. Did you know that the sink can hold 100,000 times more germs than the bathroom washbasin? According to some studies * 14% of sinks have more than a million bacteria per cm2. With Multi-Purpouse Disinfectant Kitchen, you will disinfect the sink area while eliminating all the grease that may be generated.
- Scourers and kitchen rags: when in contact with most waste, the sponges with which we clean cutlery and other culinary instruments are a source of infection and smells. These usually have bacteria such as E-coli or Salmonella. It is important to clean and disinfect them in the washing machine with Laundry Disinfectant – White Flowers since we use them precisely to clean and, instead, we may be contaminating other elements.
- Rubbish bin: rubbish bags are often not watertight and allow liquid to pass through. Disinfect and clean the bottom of the compartment each week with Multi-Purpouse Disinfectant Kitchen, since the area where the rubbish is placed is a focus of infection and generates most of the bad smells. It is not enough just to remove the rubbish, you have to disinfect the compartment to kill the bacteria that build up at the bottom of it.
- Refrigerator: refrigerators are heavily contaminated by the bacteria in raw food. The most common are Listeria, Pseudomonas or Enterobacteriaceae, common in 5% of fridges. Therefore it is very important to keep the fridge always clean and disinfected. We recommend that you clean it at least every 3 months to ensure that you keep it free of germs and thus reduce the presence of bacteria and prevent them from passing into food, and from there into our body. To clean and disinfect it thoroughly, use Multi-Purpouse Disinfectant Kitchen.
ADVICE: Apply Multi-Purpouse Disinfectant Kitchen every 2 days in all kitchen drains to prevent the appearance of bad smells.
