Food safety coaching (Part 6): Cleaning effectively
Effective cleaning is essential
to get rid of harmful bacteria and stop them spreading to food. After food preparation, work surfaces
will need to be cleaned properly to remove any food debris and bacteria. This is a two-stage process. The first step is to clean the work surface
with hot soapy water. Then rinse with clean water. Now remove harmful bacteria
by using a disinfectant or sanitiser. Always follow the manufacturers
instructions carefully. You may have to leave the chemical in contact with the surface
for a set amount of time.
