Dirty kitchens GROSS ME OUT.
Seriously...have you ever thought about it? That's the place where you lay your food out and expose it to everything floating in the air. You drop food on the counter and oftentimes think nothing of picking it up and throwing it back on your plate. You turn on the faucet, turn off the faucet, move the faucet head, open the oven, shut the oven, open the microwave, shut the microwave, open the fridge, shut the fridge, open the dishwasher, shut the dishwasher, open the cupboards, shut the cupboards, open the pantry, shut the pantry...
And how often do you sanitize those things? For most people, I think the answer would be very rarely. And how often do you touch those things without washing your hands? For most people, I think the answer would be all the time.
I spent a good 15-20 minutes cleaning and sanitizing my work kitchen this morning. I don't know if anyone else has ever done it by the looks of it. I have to do it in stages...a little one day, a little the next, because it's such a mess. My germs are bad enough, I really don't want to know what's coming off the hands of the other 100+ people working here.
Yuck yuck yuck.
