The chief of Department of supervision on hygiene of a food of management of Rospotrebnadzora across Moscow region Hope Raeva in an interview with radio Sputnik gave the Russians the main source of bacteria in the kitchen.
According to her, a convenient kitchen sponge for washing dishes, but from the standpoint of hygiene, they are not the best option. That is why sanitary rules for the enterprises of public catering forbid them to use for washing and processing of vegetables. “They are almost impossible to wash and disinfect,” said she.
According to the expert, for a small amount of time, a week, a sponge, like an incubator, growing the microorganisms in 200 thousand times more than a toilet seat. Rayev noted that if you use the same sponge on all occasions, she will become a “hotbed of infection”. “Sponge is recommended to be changed at least once a week”, — said the representative of Rospotrebnadzor.
She advised me to use a different sponge for different purposes. In addition, they can be replaced with plastic brushes, which can be regularly washed, scalded with boiling water, to disinfect. According to the specialist, in plastic, pathogenic microorganisms can grow in smaller quantities. You can also use pieces of fabric. “You can wash the end of the day,” concluded Rayev.
