KITCHEN THINGS STEP 1: DON’T LIVE WITH A DIRTY SPONGE, TOSS IT OUT ASAP
These are kitchen things you need to toss out today so that you don’t get sick or sicker. It may seem very wasteful but consider your health and the health of those around you. But it’s good to have a quick go to list expired items, space wasters versus savers and any hazards you may have hanging around. So start with those grimy sponges. You may have to do some tossing asap.
BACTERIA IS NOT GOOD TO WASH YOUR KITCHEN DISHES WITH
Grimy sponges breed lots of bacteria. So the best way to deal with this type of nasty is to wet your sponge and nuke it in the microwave for a few minutes. But do consider tossing it out if you see bits of food. There is nothing you can do about that. So basically, don’t be wasteful about your health!
WARPED PLASTIC CONTAINERS CAN SPILL YOUR FOOD CONTENTS
If you have many plastic containers, check to see how warped they are. If you can’t actually keep the tops on, that means the food you put in is more susceptible for freezer burn, spills and loads of other issues. So see if your town or city accepts recycled plastics like this and recycle. But if they don’t, you may just need to toss them out with the garbage. So it’s time to go shopping, asap! These are important kitchen things to keep up with.
LEAD HAS BEEN FOUND IN KITCHEN DISHES, TOSS THEM
Owning nice kitchen mugs for a good cup of Joe is a good thing. Owning chipped mugs is a bad thing. Firstly, you can cut your tongue. Second, if there is a chip and it was painted with lead, you are actually ingesting this into your body. Which means it is time to toss this mug out! The same goes for any ceramic dishes. If the glaze has corroded (dusty-looking) means that they may be glazed with lead. This can leach into your system and do all sorts of terrible things to your system. And the same goes for rusty pans. Rust is not a good thing. Didn’t your grandmother ever tell you this?
SNIFF YOUR SPICES AND GET NEW AND FRESH ONES
Do the sniff test with your spices. You can’t keep spices in your kitchen forever and if you do, you are sacrificing your cooking. Basically, no one will like your cooking because it stinks. Or doesn’t stink. Regardless, toss this stuff out and freshen up your spice cabinet. These are all kitchen things you want to keep up with. Freshen up your life, asap!
