Disinfect Cookware

Take apart kitchen items that can be cleaned in pieces. For any cookware that can go in the dishwasher, run it through a hot-water cycle with detergent.
  • For cookware that requires hand washing, scrub with a brush in a strong detergent solution, and
    rinse in hot water or a solution of 1 tablespoon of chlorine bleach per gallon of water. Drain and air dry.
  • Disinfect silverware, metal utensils, and pots and pans by boiling in water for 10 minutes. Don’t use chlorine bleach because it reacts with many metals and could cause them to darken.
  • Air dry dishes rather than using a towel to avoid possible contamination.
