Phase out plastic containers. More and more studies are connecting certain plastics to health problems, with No. 3 (PVC) and No. 7 plastics that contain bisphenol A (BPA) raising the most warning flags. BPA is also found in many plastic takeout containers. No. 6 plastics (polystyrene, also known as Styrofoam) also leach chemicals into food and drink. While Nos. 1, 2, 4, and 5 plastics are considered safer options, we suggest storing your food in glass containers, and choosing a stainless steel reusable water bottle for bringing beverages on the go.

Here is one more tip for keeping our kitchen clean. Remove unnecessary clutter from surfaces. Discard appliances and gadgets that you don't use any more, as unused appliances would only tend to gather dust, that's why it's better to call a rubbish removal nj company and just get rid of them. Be sure that any appliances which are still maintained and used are stored in a safe place that is out of reach of children.

Kitchen Disposal Safety

Speaking of safety, please be mindful of the ongoing threat posed by accidentally turning on kitchen garbage disposals. Children (and even absent-minded adults) unintentionally flip wrong switches, believing they have instead switched on a light or some other device. It’s so common, fingers being caught in whirling disposal blades during the holidays is more prevalent than many realize (or choose to disclose). Toggle switch identifiers, such as those seen in safety products like “Which Switch?” can minimize this problem and save energy and appliance life by positively identifying the right switch for the right appliance.

Have a Safe Day!
