What is the difference between cleaning and sanitising:

Cleaning :  Removal of visible contamination such as food waste, dirt and grease from a surface.
Sanitising :  Reduces harmful bacteria from surfaces and equipment.

Top Tip – Remember to clean first then sanitise, as there is no point sanitising a surface that is not clean. Otherwise this will result in a food source being available, and bacteria able to multiply quickly.

Importance of Sanitising.

  • Sanitising reduces the amount of harmful bacteria from surfaces and equipment.
  • Sanitation may be achieved by heat such as machine dishwashing or chemicals with surface sanitation using a sanitising chemical product.
  • You need to sanitise any surface that come in contact with hands, liquids or food products.
