With the cold and flu season behind us, keeping a regular disinfecting routine will go a long way of keeping those straggling colds at bay. With three children in the house, our kitchen is a magnet for germs. I stop at nothing to ward off those nasty bugs for as long as possible because in our home, when one person gets ill, we all fall like dominos.
Because we live in our kitchen for most of the day, our kitchen is a magnet for every germ we bring into the house, making it the one room in the house that I protect like Fort Knox.
In my HealthyKitchenLivingGuide, I layout the top five steps needed to get through a spring cold, and if you only do one thing this year, it should be to disinfect your kitchen surfaces using the Granite Gold Disinfecting Wipes® as part of your daily cleaning routine. They are the only EPA-approved convenient, disposable wipes that kill bacteria and won’t harm sealed stone surfaces, and with 35 wipes per package, there are plenty to use on your counters, sinks, faucets, appliance doors, toys and knobs; protecting both your stone and your family at the same time.
The best way to disinfect is to wipe down your counters or surface areas to ensure that they are free from debris, then using the Granite Gold Disinfecting Wipes, wipe the surface and allow it to dry for five minutes. Once dry, use a clean damp cloth to wipe the surface, and then continue with your daily granite routine.
Disinfecting is only half the battle. While you wait for your counters to dry, mix up a smoothie full of immune boosting fruit, like my go-to Tropical Cold Buster. Simply add a cup of coconut water, a cup of orange juice, and a papaya to a blender and blitz until smooth.
