Aproko doctor advices many who may not have given the potential hygiene risks in their kitchens any thought
Aproko Doctor noted that due to their occasional replacement, kitchen sponges have a propensity to amass frightening amounts of germs.
He emphasized that these sponges feature tiny holes that easily catch food fragments, giving the ideal conditions for bacteria to flourish. As a result, they serve as a breeding environment for a variety of hazardous microorganisms.
Aproko Doctor underlined the value of routinely replacing kitchen sponges in his appeal to the public, especially for people who might have been utilizing the same sponge for years. Replacing your sponge regularly can help keep your kitchen environment cleaner and healthier while lowering the likelihood of contamination and foodborne illnesses.
Additionally, he said that bleach should be used to disinfect sponges if you don’t have the money to replace them.
He suggested that they use their microwave to help eliminate the bacteria as well.
