The Doctors note 3 areas in the kitchen that many might never think to clean and disinfect and we are happy to share all of these things can be placed in the dishwasher.

Refrigerator glass shelves - When is the last time you did a really thorough cleaning of these shelves? Most of these shelves can be removed and cleaned either with a food-safe disinfectant (making sure to let them dry after cleaning) or even washed in the dishwasher.

Dish scrubbers and brushes - These items can be a breeding ground for germs and if the scrubber does not have a wood handle, it can also be placed in the dishwasher to be cleaned.
