How to Keep Your Sink Clean
Travis: Well, we have DJ on the phone with us. He was on the upper bank, disgusted with the condition of the dishes. DJ, have they been washed yet?
DJ: I didn’t leave it up to my room. I had to wash them. I finally just bleached the whole kitchen down and washed all the dishes.
Male: It’s a good idea.
Male: That’s what I would do.
Lisa: Yeah, that was a health hazard.
Travis: And this is what’s crazy is one single bacterium can grow to eight millions cells in a day.
Male: In just 24-hours, yeah.
Travis: And from looking at that sponge Dr. Ordon.
Drew: And that’s a very important point. Let’s not forget about the sponge because what you are doing, you’re just moving millions of bacteria from one spot to another but I’ve got some good sponge tips. In fact, a bad sponge can smell almost as bad as—
Male: Yeah, have you seen some of those out there?
Drew: Be very careful here. So, my sponge tips, number one, make sure you ring it up because a wet sponge is just a breeding ground for more bacteria. Cool tip, put the sponge in the microwave oven. Microwave it for two minutes, that’s going to kill the bacteria and don’t forget to disinfect the sink. Use a little baking soda and an old toothbrush, scrub that up and you got to change the sponge every now and then.
Travis: Well DJ, we actually swab the dirty dish in sponge from around here, we sent them to a lab to give everyone an idea and I have to say, this sponge grew out E. Coli and Staphylococcus aureus, two very common bacteria. So, that wasn’t a surprise to me. And you know, the good news is usually the bacteria on the sponge, it doesn’t necessary mean it’s super harmful but the reality is God forbid on that sponge, you get some bacteria that can cause harm, salmonella, etcetera. If you don’t wash that, you’re going to get sick with potential food poisoning, GI illnesses. So DJ, we’re happy to hear that your dishes are finally clean. Keep up the good work and thanks for sharing your story with us.
