This summer, gatherings of families and friends will probably start up again. It will be great to see loved ones again, but this is not a time to throw caution to the wind. Show your loved ones how much you care by following the best cleaning practices for safety at your upcoming outdoor summer celebrations with these tips:
- Clean while preparing food: Wash your hands before preparing food and your utensils and cutting boards afterward. Rinse fruits and vegetables.
- Pack disinfectant wipes and hand sanitizer: Those pandemic habits will continue to serve you well as you clean before and after your party.
- Bring trash bags: Whether in the backyard or a park, you’ll want to leave the picnic spot looking as good as or better than you found it.
You’ll likely also want to bring your mask and keep social distancing, depending on who and how many people are at the gathering. Smaller will still be safer for now. Afterward, check out our tips for cleaning food containers and dealing with any stains you may have gotten on your clothes.
