1. Use Soap And Water

Not just for hands, use soap and water to clean your kitchen shelves too. It's basic but the most effective way to clean and disinfect.

2. Air-Drying

After cleaning kitchen surfaces, give them enough time to dry out naturally before using them again. Moisture on surfaces can turn it into a breeding ground for bacteria.

3. Disinfect Properly

Your regular household cleaner containing bleach or hydrogen peroxide is an effective disinfectant. In fact, any cleaning solution with 70 percent or more alcohol content is good to clean kitchen surfaces and cabinets.

4. Avoid Natural Products

Many people are opting for natural products like white vinegar and baking soda to clean their kitchen, and even wash fruits and vegetables. However, their ability to kill viruses has not been proven yet.

5. Use The Dishwasher
