Having a set out routine for daily cleaning is ideal, along with a regular deep cleaning routine or plan. Never let dishes pile up in the sink and make sure that you clean up after preparing food of any kind, to avoid cross contamination from raw fruit, vegetables, meat or poultry and this will make it easier to maintain clean and hygienic kitchen. Health and safety in the kitchen requires you to pay attention to what you are doing at all times, to ensure the safety of you but also your friends and family. A lot of what needs to be done is simply common sense, but it helps to remind yourself of key things that can be done every day, to maintain the health and safety of yourself and others.
Cork, Bamboo or Recycled Flooring: When it comes to green kitchen tips, your choosing an eco friendly kitchen flooring can go a long way towards being green. Consider using a cork, bamboo or some other type of natural or recycled flooring product. There are a number of options out there, and most are very durable. The most readily available recycled flooring is a rubber flooring. These are made of 80 - 100% post consumer product including tires. Rubber floors are extremely durable and come in a variety of colors and styles. Cork and bamboo, while not recycled, both offer quickly renewable products that do not require deforestation of millions of trees to produce these types of floors. Both cork and bamboo are natural products as well.
The Right Size TV Set in Your Kitchen. Size is one of the most important considerations. You do not want to give up precious counter space to your television set especially in a smaller kitchen where that space is already at a premium. For most people, a nineteen inch television is a good size. However with the low profile, flat screen models a larger screen can be more achievable. If you are concerned that your TV will not fit, measure out the spot that you would like place the set in and then go from there. Another option, which does not require any space at all, is to use an under the counter mounted television set. Flat screens can also be mounted directly to the wall, making sure that they are not being mounted above sinks or any other sources of water.
You certainly do not want to screw things up by getting yourself cut or singed. When it comes to knife safety, be sure to sharpen the blades to balance your handling. Dull knives may slip off from your hands and may get you injured in the process. In using a knife, do not just cut with the edge facing you. If it slips, the blade will surge towards you so pay attention to your grip and where the blade is pointing. Furthermore, never leave sharp tools wobbly inside your kitchen drawers. Broken glass also poses risks since they can be incredibly sharp and may cut you. Sweep broken shards off the floor and clean carefully. Being barefoot is a no-no when it comes to walking on floor surfaces that have broken fragments that can pierce your heels. Also, do not just throw it out in the garbage bag and be sure to pour the shards in an old newspaper before plunking it down the bin. To prevent this accident, make sure that you do not break your glass and wipe them dry after getting them in the dishwasher.
