You will want to teach your everyone in your family these simple tips to ensure your house stays clear of food-borne illness. To start always wash your hands properly. When you wash your hands be sure to wash for at least 20 seconds before handling any food and after handling meat, poultry, eggs and seafood. You also want to make sure to wash your hands after touching the family pets and using the washroom. It is also important to keep your kitchen work area clean. You want to clean and sanitize all countertops, utensils, and cutting boards with a mild bleach solution. This should be done before and after any food preparation. A simple bleach solution with about one teaspoon of bleach in three cups of water should do the trick. Always make sure to wash your produce thoroughly. Wash fresh produce under running water to remove any dirt and residue there might be. You also want to cut away any bruised areas on produce; this is because bruised areas on produce are places where bacteria can thrive. You also want to make sure that you separate surfaces that are used to prepare meat, poultry and seafood. That also means to use separate areas in your shopping cart and refrigerator to store. When preparing raw meat, poultry, and seafood you want to use two cutting boards if possible. This means you should have one cutting board for cutting meat, and another for cutting produce. If you are going to be cooking two different types of protein, you want to be sure and keep them separate from each other and wash your cutting board thoroughly between preparing each. You can thoroughly clean plastic cutting boards in the dishwasher. Always seal raw meat, keep raw meat, poultry in a sealed container on the bottom of the refrigerator so you can prevent any juices from dripping onto other food in the fridge.
