Your Kitchen Isn't As Clean As You Think It Is

It turns out that cleaning your kitchen goes beyond just washing dishes and wiping down countertops.

We’re not saying you’re messy. Chances are, you already know that your kitchen sponge carries tons of bacteria, and you probably aren’t letting your dishes sit in your sink over night. We get it. You’re clean! But that doesn’t mean you’re kitchen is.

In fact, your kitchen is one of the most germ-ridden places in your home. With everything that happens in there―cooking, eating, talking, cleaning―it’s not surprising. And mixing germs with your food is definitely not on the menu. 

Watch the video above to find out how well your kitchen cleaning routine really works. It may look clean on the surface, but chances are there is a lot hiding underneath.
