Delivering kitchen hygiene


According to WHO, around 600 million people in the world fall ill after eating contaminated food and 420 000 die every year. While restaurants and takeaways are to blame for many of these, the cause of others lurks in the domestic kitchen. Between prepping and cleaning, the kitchen is a veritable incubator for bacteria.

Why cleaning is not enough

A kitchen may look perfectly clean. Nevertheless, it can be contaminated with lots of microorganisms that cause disease. Some of the biggest culprits in the kitchen include countertops and cutting boards. People often wipe them down with sponges and cleaning cloths that have E. coli and other bacteria. Regular cleaning may get the stains off, but unfortunately it also means you may be spreading rather than wiping away bacteria.
