Use Cleaning Brushes instead of hand
The advantage of using brushes is that you don’t need to have your hands in warm water and soap, so you can use higher temperatures to remove grease, oil from utensils. You also don’t get bacteria from the brush onto your hands. It’s also easier to clean afterward. You can just throw it into the dishwashing machine.

Proper Food Storage
Raw meat and poultry, unwashed fruit and veggies come with pesticides and other germs.Correct food storage is as critical as correct cooking. Placing warm food inside a fridge implies it has not cooled evenly and could as such, cause food poisoning. All your food should always be covered, as left in the open it becomes vulnerable to bacteria.

The Cutting Board
Cracks and crevices caused by knife cuts can make the cutting board a damp, dark, safe harbor for bacterial growth.

Using a common chopping/cutting board poses a health risk, but these can be prevented easily through maintaining a clean kitchen at all times.
