Are you a Germophobic? Use your Microwave to Disinfect and Sterilize!

Your microwave ovens can do more than just heating up food. We all know the importance of hygiene and cleanliness but are often short on time to make sure our house is germ-free. Here are some easy tricks to disinfect and sterilize items around the house using a microwave!

Sterilize Cutting Boards and Baby Bottles

To disinfect items like your cutting board simply rub some alcohol/sanitizer or half a lemon and microwave for 30-45 seconds. For baby bottles, simply fill them up half-way with water and microwave for 1-1.5 minutes on high.

Disinfecting face masks and gloves

Reusing face masks can be a health risk so sterilizing them after every use can make it safe. Simply microwave face masks for 1-2 minutes. Make sure the mask does not have any metallic part exposed!
