Kitchen Safety Tips

When cooking on the stove, keep all of your pot and pan handles turned inward so that children cannot reach up and grab them.

Do not store household cleaners in the same cabinets as your food. Make sure they are as far away from each other as possible.

Store knives and other shape utensils in a place where they cannot be reached by children. If they have them, store the knives in their protective covers.

Do not use non-microwave safe containers in the microwave. This could damage your microwave or the container – or at least create a huge mess.

When cooking on the stove with grease, keep a lid within reach so that you can use it to smother the flames in the event of a grease fire.

Make sure to clean your countertops thoroughly after preparing a meal. This will cut down the spread of germs and bacteria that can get spread between meals.

A fire extinguisher should always be kept in the kitchen in the event of an emergency. An electrical fire can happen at any time with any appliance so it is best to be prepared.

While magnets are great for keeping notes on the fridge, don’t let them get low enough that a child might grab one and choke on it because they tried to eat it.

When cooking, roll up your sleeves, or wear tight fitting clothing. Loose clothing is more likely to touch a hot burner and catch on fire. Also, when getting food out of the oven, don’t forget to use oven mitts to prevent burning your hands or arms on the hot dish or oven racks.

It is a good idea to have separate cutting boards for your meats – one for fish, one for chicken/poultry, one for pork and one for beef. You should also have one that you use for vegetables and another for bread. While this sounds like a lot, it helps to keep germs from spreading between the different foods while cooking.

If you use a wash cloth to wash dishes, use it for just one load (or two if you do one before you eat and one after you eat) – then throw it in the washing machine. Leaving it lying around is an invitation for germs and bacteria to grow. The same goes for the towel you use to dry the dishes.

Better yet, use the flat-backed magnets (usually found in the form of business cards provided by your local insurance agent, local business, school or church). They're more difficult to grab than letters, numbers, etc, and much tougher to eat!

Exclamation Liquid chlorine bleach and alcohol are your friends...

In recent years, there has been an increasing concern about bacteria that have grown resistant to conventional disinfecting products (usually those that contain triclosan or other common chemical compounds).

Laboratory tests still show that liquid chlorine bleach and alcohol are most effective in killing germs and bacteria, without the risk of developing chemical-resistant forms of the same. (Don't mix chlorine bleach and alcohol together, and don't mix chlorine bleach with other household cleaning products.)

Please, please, PLEASE read the label before using!
