Dussehra fever is over but Diwali is around the corner again. It’s that time of the year when people are the happiest. One can witness uninterrupted celebrations, a sense of positivity all around.

Diwali celebrates the victory of good over evil, love over hate and hope over despair. Apart from the traditional fireworks and exchange of gifts, there are other rituals too which people love to follow religiously. And, cleanliness is one of them.

Kitchen is considered to be a sacred place. Therefore, it needs to be kept clean. But, there are few elements inside the kitchen which are often left unattended. These pose a risk to your health and therefore needs detailed cleaning.

Here is a list of such health hazards:



Kitchen sponges are the most unclean objects in the house, even dirtier than your bathroom sink. It’s advised to change them regularly or use them only after sanitizing in some bleach solution.




Rubber attracts mold and E. coli. Apart from the base and inner portion of the mixer/blender, it’s important to clean the gasket too. Subsequent use increases the chances of contamination.




Often, the junction point of the handle and face of a spatula is not attended properly while cleaning. Therefore, it’s a potential haven for mold and E. coli.





So many people use the kitchen tap. It’s a no brainer that it’s one of the most neglected things in the kitchen. The top, side, underside and base of the tap need more attention than they actually get. 



These make a great breeding place for bacteria. Over a period of time, dirt and debris build in the crevices. Further, most people don’t wash their knives after using them and when these unclean objects come in contact with the block or other foods, they contaminate them too.


Proper cleaning means paying attention to the smallest of corners. Take care to clean the above mentioned items to avoid sickness and poor health, and ensure safety to your family.

There can be no better time than now, to get a modular kitchen for your family!
