It’s important to always wash your hands thoroughly with soap and warm water before preparing food. Hand sanitisers will not remove allergens – the allergens need to be washed off the hands with soap and water or wiped thoroughly using hand wipes if water is not available. Use warm soapy water to clean the kitchen benchtop and any other food preparation surfaces.
Use warm soapy water when cleaning food preparation equipment, such as bowls, pots and pans and utensils to prevent cross-contamination.
Clean trays with warm soapy water. Baking paper or aluminium foil can also be used if required. Note that oils can seep through wax paper or other liners and cause cross contamination.
Wash dish cloths and tea towels regularly.
