Yep, everywhere in the kitchen!

Good Morning America” along with the Consumer Reports found the germiest places in a kitchen.  Here are the biggest places we touch everyday lots of times a day:  GERMS EVERYWHERE..oh goodness!

Sticky Fingers:  Your own fingers can spread more germs than any other tool in your kitchen.  Raw mean and dirt from unwashed vegetables on your hands can all contaminate your kitchen.

Your Stuff and Your Counter Tops:  Your keys, your purse and even the mail can transport bacteria.

Reusable Grocery Bags:  Reusing the same bags overtime to transport raw meats and vegetables can cause bacteria to grow on the surfaces of the tote.

The Fridge and Freezer:  To keep food fresh and bacteria free–your refrigerator should be kept between 32 and 40 degrees Fahrenheit.  The freezer should be kept at zero degrees.

Dishcloths:  When you wipe your hands after handling raw food and then use the cloth to wipe down other surfaces, the bacteria is transferred.

Kitchen Sink:  A breeding ground for bacteria, the sink’s handles are usually the first stop after handling raw food and a magnet for salmonella and other dangerous bacteria.

Microwave:  It’s a hot bed for germ activity.  Harmful bacteria can certainly collect on the visible spills left behind on the inside of the microwave.  Also, the germs can also accumulate on the exterior buttons.
