Mastering Proper Food Hygiene: Essential Practices for a Safer Kitchen Part 2

Adopting a “clean as you go” approach can make a significant difference in maintaining a hygienic kitchen. Immediately wipe down surfaces and utensils after use to prevent the buildup of food residues that can attract pests and bacteria.
