Thank for your attention.






Just kidding :-) If you read this post until here, thank you - here are some cleaning tips:

SANITIZING FOOD CONTACT SURFACES


A solution of bleach and water should be used to sanitize all food preparation and contact surfaces. (ehm, for food contact surface in your mouth rather grab a Scotch)


Formula: 1 tablespoon of bleach per 1 gallon of water will give you a 50-200 ppm sanitizing solution. This can be used to sanitize dishes, utensils, food preparation counters and tables.

* Make sure that you use only UNSCENTED bleach for food contact surfaces.

* All spray bottles must be clearly labeled with contents (including Scotch)


DISINFECTING CHANGING TABLES, BATHROOMS, AND TOYS


All changing tables/diapering areas, bathrooms and toys must be disinfected after each use - so called parenthood jackpot.


The following solution of bleach and water should be used on these surfaces: ¼ cup of bleach per 1 gallon of water. This will give you a 500-800 ppm disinfecting solution. Remake solution daily.


Soaking method for toys:


Wash and rinse toys to remove any visible blood, dirt, saliva or any other body fluids.



Soak toys in a solution of ¾ cup of bleach per gallon of water for 5 minutes. Rinse toys and allow to fully air dry.


IN CASE OF ACCIDENTS AND ILLNESS


For all surfaces impacted by ill children (vomiting, diarrhea) a stronger solution of bleach and water is required: 1/3 cup bleach per 1 gallon of water. This will give you a 1000+ ppm disinfecting solution. After cleaning the area with detergent, spray or wipe with surfaces with the disinfectant. Make sure to allow surfaces to fully dry and get a glass of Scotch to celebrate a job well-done.
