Does General Cleaning Make You Healthy?

by: Junji Takano

As the year-end or Christmas season approaches, general cleaning becomes a common activity. However, it is often considered a challenging task. The kitchen, with its stubborn, sticky, oil-covered walls and sink, is among the most difficult areas to clean.

But what is the connection between general cleaning and health?

Let's start with a simple cleaning technique. What do you use to remove oily residues from kitchen utensils? We recommend using tangerine (orange peel) for this purpose. Citrus fruits contain essential oils called limonene, which are commonly used in detergents to dissolve dirt and oil effectively.

What about water heaters or pots? Have you noticed white scales appearing inside them? Tap water contains calcium, which causes alkaline scales to form. You can easily remove these scales with vinegar. Mix one tablespoon of vinegar with every liter of water and boil. After boiling, leave it overnight. The next morning, you will find that all the white scales have fallen off.

What about windows, glasses, cups, and ceramics? Good cleaning materials are just around your kitchen. One such material is potato peel. The skin of a potato contains a chemical substance called saponin. This substance, extracted from plants, forms a soapy lather when mixed with water and is also used to make detergents.

Take a look at your stove, oven, and all those kitchen utensils. How long have you left them as they are? For 3 months, 6 months, or even a year, without cleaning them at all, haven't you? These items might be full of oil soiling, which is hard to remove. You may have tried using regular detergents, rubbing with a metal spatula, sponge, and sodium bicarbonate, only to end up with scratch marks. Did you know that many kinds of bacteria live in these dirty areas, which are in contact with the food you cook and eat daily?

General cleaning can make you healthy

Here's a simple way to remove sticky and hard oily dirt from kitchen equipment:

  1. Use any powdered detergent, like sodium bicarbonate mixed with water.
  2. After wetting the kitchen tools with the detergent solution, cover them with tissue paper or newspaper. If you use newspapers, make sure they are slightly wet as well.
  3. Use a hairdryer to heat the tissue paper to about 80 °C (176 °F) for 3 minutes. Amazingly, the sticky oil soiling peels off by itself.

Next, let's talk about one of the unhealthiest places in your kitchen - your refrigerator. Most people believe that bacteria cannot survive inside a refrigerator. However, upon closer inspection, you'll find that appearances can be deceiving.

Most refrigerators are divided into a refrigeration room, a freezing room, and a vegetable room. We found the most bacteria in the vegetable room, followed by the freezing room and the refrigeration room. We recommend storing vegetables in polybags or other wrapping materials. In the freezing room, the blood from meat and fish can leak from their packaging. Most bacteria do not die in the freezing room. The simplest way to clean these rooms is to wipe them with ethanol. Ethyl alcohol will kill almost 90 percent of bacteria in a few seconds. Remember, bacteria do not die inside the refrigerator.

Finally, let's discuss cleaning your room, especially floor coverings like carpets. They are full of lice and other unseen bacteria. How can you eliminate them? Lice are nocturnal insects (active at night). Therefore, you cannot clean carpets and other items with a vacuum cleaner as you usually do.

Here's a method to clean your carpets:

  1. During the night, close all windows and make the room being cleaned as dark as possible. Since lice are nocturnal insects, they will come out to the surface of the carpet.
  2. It may take about 5-6 hours for all lice to come out. Therefore, we recommend you clean early in the morning using a vacuum cleaner.

By following these cleaning tips, you can maintain a healthier living environment and live longer.
