How to Disinfect Your Kitchen Faucet & Sink
A clean kitchen is a functioning kitchen; the kitchen often gets overlooked when it comes to cleanliness. We think that by spraying the sink, faucet and countertops with a cleaner that the kitchen is now clean. The kitchen gets a lot of traffic during the day, the kids come home and they want a drink of water from the faucet, you and your spouse wash your hands after getting them dirty and we wash our hands after touching foods like chicken, fish and beef.
This is where health conditions may come into play. After a day of hectic kitchen use you will want to not just clean the kitchen but disinfect the kitchen especially the sink and faucet where most of the dirt, germs and bacteria is growing. How exactly do we disinfect the kitchen sink and faucets? For starters we look for the best cleaners that have disinfectants included in them. Some of the best disinfectants on the market today are from Lysol and Clorox.
One of these products is Lysol 4 in 1 Antibacterial Kitchen Cleaner. This cleaner will help fight off bacteria that is often associated with foods.
