Hygiene in the kitchen is very important to keep germs away and to keep you and your family healthy. This is also extremely important if you own a restaurant, to keep kitchens clean and in great hygiene, to keep germs away and to keep customers healthy and happy. Bad hygiene can lead to food poisoning and disease outbreaks in the family and customers.

Many people are not aware of that you can NOT use the same cloth in the bathroom that you use for kitchen counters. So we will now explain the cloth colors and also where they are used. There are many types of germs and some places more than other...

Kitchen Cloths

Blue and Green should bee used to clean the kitchen counters, stove, kitchen machines as well as kitchen tables and chairs, including other furniture. Do NOT under any circumstances use this cloths in bathroom or kitchen floor drains, or the toilet. Floor drains and toilets contains a lot of bacteria and germs, way more than what is in the kitchen. 

Yellow is used to clean bathroom sinks, taps and showers and toilet seat and the toilet cover. Do not under any circumstances use this cloth to floor drains or inside toilet and it's corners.

Red red i used for cleaning floor drains and inside the toilet and it's corners. This cloth should NOT! I repeat NOT bee used in kitchen or to clean the shower,sink and taps with, or on any other furniture for that matter.

Is this a general rule? I've been working in different kitchens for years and we've never cared about the colors of the cloth. OF COURSE we didn't use the same one for the toilets and the kitchen but we just kept them in different places so they couldn't get mixed up. Where have you heard about these specific colors? Glad
