7. Spoon Rests and Pot Holders
Items like spoon rests and pot holders that are used frequently in meal preparation and serving may get neglected when it comes to cleaning. Remember to store spoon rests in drawers when they are not in use to reduce the chance that airborne bacteria or bacteria potentially spread during food preparation can contaminate the spoon rest. As for pot holders and dishcloths, send them for a bi-weekly spin in the washing machine or wash after each use to know your cloths are squeaky-clean.
